EPT Grand Final: Adrian Mateoes Wins The Main Event

Tags: Adrian Mateoes, EPT Grand Final.
Posted on 11 May 2015 by "T".

The first-ever Spanish European Poker Tour champion was crowned on Friday evening after Adrian Mateoes from Madrid won the PokerStars and Monte-Carlo®Casino EPT Grand Final Main Event for €1,082,000!

In total, Mateoes topped a field of 562 entries over 6 days of play to become the last man standing in this tournament and, more importantly, become the first Spanish champion in the very end of Season 11 of European Poker Tour.

Despite being only 20 years of age, Mateoes already has both an EPT title and a WSOP (2013 WSOP Europe Main Event) title under his belt - which means that he "only" needs a WPT title to complete poker's triple crown! But that's not all... he's also the number two on the Spanish all-time money list. Pretty amazing to say the least!

Many congratulations to Adrian Mateos on winning this event and the one million prize money. This guy is only 20, yet he has won some very big tournaments already, well done to all who cashed

Adrian Mateos now has an Estrellas Poker Tour, European Poker Tour and World Series of Poker Europe title, despite not being old enough to play in the WSOP in Las Vegas yet. He turns 21 in July.
The new season of the European Poker Tour begins in August in Barcelona.

congrats to Adrian Mateos winning this event
i was surprised to see the players from Senegal and Lebanon coming 2nd and 3rd in this prestige event
poker is becoming famous all over the world
i was disappointed that Johnny Lodden didn't take this home but i guess 4th place finish is not that bad
the winner is only 20 years old , that is amazing
this was an interesting event , and big prizes were awarded
i am sure we will see those names again in the poker world

I had seen him hovering around the top positions but I thought this was going to go to one of either Lodden or Schemion but at only 20 he has had a lot of success already.
Good to see a couple of new names in the top 3,both have played many times and cashed quite well but not too this degree.

Realy impressive the game of Adrian Mateos

Honestly I did not remember that even poker has a triple crown - this fact seem to slip my mind at one time - I already have trouble with realizing the fact that there are three organizations doing work here which could be done by only one.
