WSOP is going on at its full glory, and we are seeing a lot of surprises as young, lesser-known players clear the tables in different events at the tournament. The 22-year old Spanish Poker player Adrian Mateos won the $10,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold’em Championship last week after about 128 matches. The young player won his third World Series of Poker gold bracelet and a $324,470 reward. A lot of poker analysts were predicting that the Spaniard will make waves in the tournament, but Adrian has truly exceeded the hype and expectations.
Adrian Mateos Wins $324,470
Adrian is really happy about his victory. Talking to the media he said: “It’s insane that I have three bracelets, It’s really difficult to win three bracelets and I’m 22. I run good and I think I play good so that’s all that matters.”
He defeated one of the best Poker players, Daniel Negreanu, in the Round of 128. Mateos’ next opponent was Ian O’Hara. The Spaniard won the match against Ian pretty easily.
Eric Wasserson was the next opponent of Mateos. The 22-year old took an early lead in the match and got his confidence boosted. He finally won the match, and braced up to face two-time bracelet winner Ryan Hughes in his next match. Hughes gave a tough time to Mateos, initially winning the game with 10:1 in chips, but Mateos fought back and doubled up four times. Mateos king-three bested Hughes’ ace-ten and the Spaniard won.
Mateos was only 16 when he started playing Poker in his hometown San Martin de la Vega, Spain. His inspiration was different Poker stars he used to watch on the TV. In 2013, He won WSOP Europe Main Event as a 19 year old for his first bracelet and took home €1,000,000.
