Johnnie Moreno Draws First Blood in Prop Bet With Shaun Deeb2 years ago
Tournament legend Shaun Deeb has made a prop bet with YouTube vlogger Johnnie “Vibes” Moreno. The pair booked an even money wager on their ROI% from the World Series of Poker 2019. $10,000 has been escrowed and will be handed over after the Main Event.
While Moreno is knocking on 30k subscribers for his YouTube channel he is certainly no Shaun Deeb who has mixed it with the very best the game has to offer for at least a decade and a half. Not only that, but Moreno is almost exclusively a cash game player.
Shaun Deeb is a seriously high-class tournament player, whether online or in the live arena. He is also the reigning WSOP Player of the Year. Last year he doubled his WSOP gold bracelet tally to four, and collected more points than anyone else out there.
So, Moreno is clearly under no illusions that this is a -EV bet at even money, but it’s a great piece of PR after getting slated for selling action for this year’s WSOP at too high a markup. Already he is guaranteed his first cash of the series in event #3 The Big 50.
With 11 events planned for the summer Moreno needs to get off to a fast start before Deeb starts to stretch his legs or even goes on another run like 2018.
