EPT Vilamoura: Antonio Matias Wins Against Pierre Neuville

Tags: Antonio Mtias, EPT, Pierre Neuville, PokerStars.
Posted on 24 November 2009 by "K".

Playing poker just for fun and winning in the end must be overwhelming for others, but not for a man named Antonio Matias, a 54-year-old Portuguese travel agency director.  He may be kind of disappointed when he missed to see his much awaited football game earlier, but that did not made him lose his concentration on playing poker.  In fact, he was seriously playing.  He has beaten other 322 adept poker players to achieve the Portuguese EPT title with the last opponent being Pierre Neuville.

Matias’ cards were 7Diamond 8Club while Neuville's were 10Spade JHeart.

The 5 cards presented on the table were JDiamond 7Heart 8Heart 7Club 2Club, which obviously made Matias the winner of PokerStars EPT Vilamoura.

Antonio Matias shall be leaving the table with a hefty amount of €404,793 while Neuville shall go home with a nice €257,681.  Indeed, these two deserve their victories as they have seriously fought off their opponents and have given the world of poker a very memorably entertaining and exciting tournament.

Who would say a portuguese player would get the first prize, hein? Congratulations to António, he really knew how to show all stars who came to Portugal to play this tourney that portuguese players also know how to do it! Finally we are starting to show our poker skills to the world. First we win at home, then, we will conquer the world, you'll see..
