The first Spanish champion was found on European Poker Tour when Adrian Mateos won on Friday night.
The twenty year old walked away with the largest victory in his poker profession, and it is the second major tournament he has won in his career. It took the season 11 end for the Spaniard to achieve this but he did it and also now he carries the two legs of the poker Tripe Crown on his head
In the final table results, Adrian Mateos took home €1,082,000 as the first place prize, and Muyedine Fares from Senegal won €679,000 for his second place standing and Hady El Asmar from Lebanon took the third spot with a prize money amount of €486,000.
The last day of the EPT Grand Final Main Event of 2015 PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino started with six-players on the final table and it was a tough bunch to beat. The most recognizable poker star at the table was Ole Schemion, who was prominent with the EPT Season 10 Player of the Year title, but others were equally good contenders. There was Johnny Lodden, the Team PokerStars Pro, Mateos, the WSOP 2013 Europe Main Event winner, who is also second in the all time money list from Spain, and the Polish regular, Jose Carlos Garcia, with lots of experience.
But surprisingly not anyone of the above were the leaders on the starting of play, and the two players with most chips were amateur players, Hady El Asmar and Muhyedine Fares from Lebanon and Senegal respectively standing first and second on chips count.
The biggest hand was played in the tournament by Mateos and Fares, and the former had 2 million chips less than the later. But it was all over after exchanging four hands, and Adrian Mateos emerged the winner of the event.
