Spain's Adrian Mateos Wins 2013 WSOPE Main EventSpain’s Adrian Mateos Diaz has won the 2013 WSOP Europe Main Event, after defeating a field of 375 players over five days on his way to capturing a gold bracelet, and collecting the €1 million ($1.38m) first-place prize.
Following his remarkable victory at the Casino Barrière de Enghien in France, the 19 year-old player, commented: “[With] more money I can play more events. You will see me more..Next year I can’t [go to Vegas], I have to wait, but I will be there.”
Adrian Mateos seemed to be in complete control of the final table from the start, his first victim being a short-stacked Benny Spindler who exited in 6th (€126k), after his pocket queens were bested by Mateos’ K-10, with a K spiking on the river.
Next, the Spaniard’s K-8 held on a Ks-10s-8-A-3 board against Ravi Raghavan As-Qs to see off the US pro in 5th (€176k), while Dominik Nitsche exied in 3rd place ((€400k) after his 23bb shove with 9-8 faltered against thr A-7 of Mateos.
Entering heads-up play, Mateos then held  a more than 4 to 1 chip lead against France’s Fabrice Soulier, and 100 hands later the defining hand was played with Soulier (9-8) all-in on a 4-J-9 flop. Adrian Mateos then decided to call holding A-K and after the turn and river produced a K and 5, Soulier collected €610k for his runner-up finish, while Adrian Mateos was crowned the 2013 WSOPE Main Event champion.
