Semi-Retirement be damned, Shaun Deeb is back in the winner’s circle at the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP). Though he now plays a limited online schedule along with high-stakes mixed games at Aria, Deeb proved that he hasn’t lost a step in the tournament arena by taking down event no. 28 for an outright win of $243,610.

The two-day event saw a stacked final table that included day one chip leader Shawn “buck21” Buchanan and Greg “DuckU” Hobson. Deeb’s first WCOOP bracelet came in 2008.
