Adrian Mateos Wins Two EPT Side Events in One Day

Adrian Mateos

Most poker players dream about the day they win one European Poker Tour (EPT) event. It is almost unfathomable that a poker player can win two EPT side events in just one day, but that is just what Spain's Adrian Mateos accomplished on Feb. 7 when he not only won the €5,250 buy-in EPT Event #42 No Limit Hold'em - Turbo Cash - 6 Max, but also the €2,250 buy-in EPT Event #44 No Limit Hold'em - Turbo Cash - 6 Max during the EPT Deauville festival.

Mateos first won €36,290 ($41,448) in the EPT Deauville Event #42 when he beat out a small 18-player field, including fellow countryman Vicente Delgado, Ukraine's Eugene Katchalov, and Poland's Piotr Franczak.

Later in the day, Mateos won another €31,450 ($35,920) when he bested a 52-player field in the EPT Deauville Event #44 which included Dominik Nitsche, Artem Litinov, Ibrahim Ghassan, Marc Delimal, and David Vamplew on the final table.

While the PokerStars blog titled EPT Deauville: Mateos wins two tournaments in a day points out that Mateos should consider only playing turbo tournaments, we respectfully disagree despite his amazing double-duty achievement on Saturday.

According to The Hendon Mob, where Mateos is ranked No. 1 on Spain's all-time money list with $2,183,922 in live tournament cashes. Mateos' biggest win came at the 2013 World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) Main Event where he bested a 375 player field for a €1,000,000 ($1,351,661) payday.
