"If I'm Gonna Lose I Wanna Lose to a Superstar"

Freddy Deeb

A player in middle position moved all in for 42,800 and action folded to Freddy Deeb on the button.

"All right," he said before pushing in a call. Both blinds folded and the hands were turned up.


"It's a race," someone at the table said just before the flop came down    .

"Race my ass," Deeb's opponent said half-jokingly. Neither the   turn nor   river changed a thing and Deeb scored the elimination.

"If I'm gonna lose I wanna lose to a superstar," the player said before exiting the Amazon Purple section.
