Back in October, a 19-year-old Spaniard by the name of Adrian Mateos defeated a stacked final table to win the 2013 World Series of Poker Europe Main Event for €1,000,000! Mateos did so by defeating accomplished pro Fabrice Soulier in heads-up play. Others Mateos outlasted were Dominik Nitsche (3rd - €400,000), Ravi Raghavan (5th - €176,000) and Benny Spindler (6th - €126,000).
“[With] more money I can play more events,” said an elated Mateos after the win. “You will see me more... Next year I can’t [go to Vegas], I have to wait, but I will be there.”
While Mateos has to wait to go to Vegas, he doesn't to play on the EPT. Mateos is in action today (you only have to be 18 to play in Prague), and only time will tell if the young superstar can duplicate the success he had in Paris. Mateos is currently sitting on a stack of 19,500.
