Congratulations to Adrian Mateos, WSOPE Champion 2013 (€1,000,000)
The second youngest World Series of Poker Europe champion was crowned in the early hours of Saturday morning after an epic heads up battle that lasted more than four hours.
Adrian Mateos beat local hero, Fabrice Soulier, on the 294th hand of the final table when he spiked a king on the turn to better Soulier’s flopped top pair.
Both men played their hearts outs and both were exhausted at the day’s conclusion. The French-flavored crowd were obviously disappointed but they paid the upmost respect to a 19 year-old player who is a new bright star in the game.
They bettered a final table that included such luminaries as Dominik Nitsche, Jerome Huge, Ravi Raghavan and Benny Spindler.
That wraps up the WSOPE for another year. Who knows where the festival will rest in 12 months time.
We hope you’ve enjoyed PokerListings’ exclusive coverage the past fortnight. Don’t forget, the WSOP November Nine final table is just around the corner.
