GIBRALTAR, Gibraltar, October 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Adrian Mateos, an 888poker endorsed player, has won the 2013 World Series of Poker Europe Main Event Championship.
Mateo beat out a field 375 players in the €10,450 NLH Main event which had a total of €3.6 million prize pool and a €1million first prize. The final heads-up was against famed French poker pro, Fabrice Soulier, and lasted over 4 hours!
At only 19 years old Mateos is the 2nd youngest WSOPE bracelet winner ever and has only recently started playing poker in the last year and already amassed over €1.3 million in lifetime tournament winnings. As a notable chess player, Adrian contributes the patience and strategy he uses in chess as a key factor in his success at poker which requires similar skills. He hopes to reinvest a majority of his WSOPE winnings back into his poker and we should expect to see much more from this Spaniard at both the chess and poker tables.
