Mateos Wins on Weird Ending

Mateos wasn’t the only leading pro to run deep in main event. Ryan Riess, the 2013 WSOP Centerpiece champ, ended up in 13th area ($ 80,000). Alex Foxen, the 2018 GPI Player of the Year, was gotten rid of in 12th location ($ 80,000), as well as, as we already discussed, Hunichen was just 2 areas off being crowned champion.

” Huge Huni” lost a crucial, massive pot versus Mateos at the final table. Mateos transformed a set of 7’s on a board of A-J-6-7-10 and also was up against A-K. With 250 million already in the pot, Mateos inspected back the river, and also Hunichen put him all in for an additional 158 million. Mateos snap-called and increased into the chip lead.

Hunichen was eventually removed in 3rd location, his 2nd deep run in a live-streamed event in the past two weeks. The high-stakes pro also racked up a second-place surface in the $50,000 Texas hold’em Masters ending for $442,000, losing heads-up to total collection champion, Sam Soverel.

Mateos discussed a bargain which paid him $1,062,805 and after that an additional $100,000 for winning the tournament. The occasion had a bit of an unusual verdict.

With Van Blarcum down to around 15 big blinds, he revealed he was all-in pre-flop. The only trouble was, he was in the large blind, so he had not been very first to act. Mateos after that hopped with J-9 from the small blind. Van Blarcum, without taking a look at his cards, prepared to go house and, holding true to his word, shoved his remaining chips into the center. Mateos called.

Van Blarcum showed 10-2 offsuit, which really did not attach when the board went out 9-A-8-Q-6, providing the title to among online poker’s nicest and most skilled players.
