Adrian Mateos

On Sunday, Adrian Mateos bagged his third PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) title in WCOOP 28-H, winning $80,212 along with his third title. Yesterday, one of the best players in the world showed why he's deserving of that praise, as Mateos won his second title in two nights by winning WCOOP-25-H: $25,000 8-Max Super High Roller Sunday Slam for a massive $543,686.

Mateos beat another red-hot player, Fedor "CrownUpGuy" Holz, heads-up and now boasts four career WCOOP titles.

Twelve other winners were crowned on Monday night, including Sylvain "calculer_" Loosli and Gavin "gavz101" Cochrane. Check below for a complete overview of all things WCOOP on PokerNews.

Adrian "Amadi_017" Mateos Wins Fourth WCOOP Title in WCOOP-25-H: $25,000 Super High Roller Sunday Slam ($543,686)

Adrian "Amadi_017" Mateos has done something today which might not get repeated for a while. He has just taken down WCOOP-25-H: $25,000 NLHE [8-Max, Super High Roller Sunday Slam] for $543,686 and his fourth title after winning WCOOP 28-H last night.

Mateos defeated Fedor "CrownUpGuy" Holz heads-up after they agreed to a deal. He now joins players like Andrey "Kroko-dill" Zaichenko, Dzmitry "Colisea" Urbanovich, Gleb "Ti0373" Tremzin, and Joao "Naza114" Vieira who also have collected four titles. Mateos boasts over $21 million in live tournament cashes and countless online winnings.

The tournament had a guaranteed prize pool of $2,500,000 but the event with the biggest buy-in of the series attracted 71 unique players and 35 reentries to create a total prize purse of $2,599,650 thanks to the 106 entries. Mateos needed to reenter as he failed to hit with his first bullet but got a sweet return on investment on his second one.

Luke "Bit2Easy" Reeves, Kahle "ROFLshove" Burns, "tzuzteutezu", Wiktor "Iimitless" Malinowski, Pauli "Fiilismies" Ayras, Artur "mararthur1" Martirosian, and Chris "Big Huni" Hunichen joined them on the final table.

* reflects heads-up deal

Heads-up, Mateos broached the subject of a deal but got no response before winning the first hand of heads-up to get the stacks to almost even. Holz then asked if Mateos was interested in a deal before the tournament was paused and a deal was agreed upon. Mateos held a slight lead, increased it, lost it, and then grabbed it back before not letting it go anymore.

Holz managed to double up twice more before Mateos hit a flush to leave Holz behind with 12 big blinds. In the end, he shoved his last nine blinds in with king-nine while Mateos picked up one of the prettier hole cards combinations in poker, the ace-king. The ace on the flop and another one on the turn signaled the end of the tournament as Mateos cemented his spot in WCOOP history.
