Adrian Mateos Upsets Poker Pro Fabrice Soulier in WSOPE Main Event

Mon, 11 Nov 2013

The 2013 World Series of Poker Europe recently concluded with Adrian Mateos winning the title. He upset the local favorite, poker professional Fabrice Soulier to win the title. Mateos is just 19 years old but he proved that age doesn’t mean much when it comes to playing high stakes poker.
“[With] more money I can play more events,” said Mateos, “You will see me more.”

Mateos and Soulier had an epic heads-up battle that was eventually won by Mateos. The heads-up action lasted for 163 hands which was longer than the rest of the final table combined. Mateos became the second-youngest champion in World Series of Poker history. Mateos took home almost $1.4 million dollars for the win.

When heads-up play started it was Mateos with about a 4-1 lead in chips but that lead didn’t last as Soulier was able to pull even and he even had the lead at one point. The action finally ended when the A-K of Mateos beat the 9-8 of Soulier. The flop was 4-9-J which gave Soulier the lead but a king fell on the turn and it was Mateos winning the hand.
