The King of MTT grinders apparently decided to quit tournament poker for good. Shaun Deeb yesterday posted on twoplustwo that he´ll quit tournament poker – read here
He stated that he is burnt out and cannot go on – if you check his current stats on officialpokerrankings.com you might see, that Shaun is Number 2 (of 1,580,735) in the pokerstars mtt ranking for 2009 – but he is only like 390,000 something within the last 120 days. This guy put it in unbelievable volume of play (there is no player i sat at the table with in mtts as much in 2o09, and i sat at his table a lot – to be honest i cannot remember a lot of players i recognize sitting with more than once this year).
I hope whatever Shaun does at the moment makes him happy and I expect him back at the tables in 2010?
Or does anyone really believes he left for good?
