Adrian Mateos Diaz Speaks To 888poker.tv after winning the WSOPE Main Event!
And Team888poker has another Champion!
Adrian,the second youngest World Series of Poker Europe winner ever, was crowned after an epic heads up battle that lasted more than 4 hours!
Adrian knocked out local poker legend Fabrice Soulier when he hit a king on the turn to better Soulier’s flopped top pair. Both men played their hearts outs and both were exhausted at the day’s conclusion, the chips swinging from side to side throughout the match. This final table had real action during the HU time when both of the players fought for every blind.
Adrian's Winning Hand:
Fabrice Soulier raised to 130,000 and Adrian Mateos Diaz three-bet to 310,000. The flop brought 4♣ J♥ 9♠.
Diaz bet 275,000. Soulier moved all in for 2,270,000 and Diaz took the time to thinking and eventually he decided to make the call.
Soulier showed 9♦ 8♦ and Diaz has A♠ K♣ for two over cards. Diaz hit the K♠ on the turn and he took the lead in the hand! On the river the 5♦ popped up and it was all over!
The French-heavy crowd were obviously disappointed but they fully respected the 19 year-old Spanish player, who is a new bright star in the game.
Don’t forget, the WSOP November Nine final table is just around the corner and we have three Team 888poker Ambassadors in the mix, with the Chip Leader being 888poker's own JC Tran.
