Hand #86: Ole Schemion announced all in with {A-Clubs}{2-Spades} over a raise in front of him. Everyone folded, some much needed chips to Schemion.

Hand #87: El Asmar made it 110,000 holding {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Spades} on the button. Johnny Lodden in the big blind found {8-Hearts}{7-Spades} and he defended. The flop came {A-Spades}{10-Clubs}{2-Hearts} and Lodden check-folded to El Asmar's small bet.

Hand #88: Fares made it 110,000 holding {A-Clubs}{9-Clubs} in the hijack. Schemion found {A-Hearts}{7-Hearts} on the button, but folded. Mateos in the big blind called with {K-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} and the two saw a flop of {Q-Spades}{4-Hearts}{6-Clubs}, missing both and both checked.

The {9-Spades} hit the turn and both players paired up. Mateos bet 160,000 and Fares made the call. The {2-Clubs} completed the board and Mateos bet 350,000. Fares called with the better hand, and Mateos shook his head while mucking.

Hand #89: Ole Schemion limped in from the cutoff holding {K-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}. Mateos in the small blind found {A-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} and announced all in. Both Garcia in the big blind and Schemion folded.

Hand #90: Action folded to Garcia and he moved all in from the small blind for 430,000 holding {K-Clubs}{J-Hearts}. Fares folded {2-Spades}{6-Clubs} from the big blind.

Hand #91: Lodden in the hijack found {J-Diamonds}{J-Clubs} and he made it 105,000 from the hijack. Mateos called from the cutoff with the {5-Clubs}{5-Spades}. El Asmar in the big blind called with {2-Clubs}{2-Spades}. The flop came {10-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{9-Clubs} and all three of them checked. The turn paired the board with the {10-Diamonds}. El Asmar bet out 120,000 and Lodden called, Mateos folded. {8-Spades} on the river and El Asmar checked. Lodden bet 285,000 into 610,000. El Asmar folded.

Hand #92: El Asmar opened to 115,000 with {8-Hearts}{9-Hearts} from the button, and Schemion three-bet with {a-Spades}{a-Hearts} to 225,000. El Asmar called and both players saw a flop of {j-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}. Schemion bet 80,000 and that was enough to take down the pot.

Hand #85: Jose Carlos Garcia open-raised {a-Hearts}{10-Spades} from under the gun and El Asmar three-bet from the cutoff to 215,000 with {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}. Garcia let it go.

Hand #86: Mateos opened {j-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} from the small blind to 800,000, which was enough to make the short-stacked Garcia fold in the big blind.

Hand #87: Lodden raised to 100,000 in the cutoff with {k-Diamonds}{6-Spades} and got a call from Fares with {8-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} in the big blind. Fares check-called Lodden's continuation bet of 115,000 on a flop of {7-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{4-Spades} Both players then saw the {6-Clubs} on the turn, which they both checked. The river card of the {5-Clubs} gave Fares a straight, and he bet out to 125,000. Lodden, holding only two-pair made the call and it was a case of yet more chips for Fares, as he moved over 7,000,000 chips.

Hand #85: Schemion bet 100,000 under the gun with {qcjc} and Lodden three-bet to 220,000 with {10-Spades}{7-Clubs} from the hijack. Schemion let it go and the German is down to 700,000.

will_shill • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Hand #75: Schemion raised to 170,000 from the hijack with {a-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}, and Lodden three-bet from the cutoff with {10-Spades}{10-Hearts}. It was folded back to Schemion, who let it go.

Fares checked a flop of {4-Hearts}{3-Spades}{2-Spades} and Garcia bet out 115,000. Fares called and the turn card was the {a-Clubs}. Both players checked. The river was the {3-Diamonds} giving both players two-pair, Fares with a higher two-pair. Fares bet 350,000 and Garcia thought for a while, counting out the chips before calling. With this hand Fares moved up to around 4,700,000 in chips, increasing his lead whilst Garcia is now officially the short stack with 760,000.

The board was {a-Spades}{7-Spades}{2-Clubs}. Schemion reached for his chips and Lodden immediately mucked before Schemion had a chance to bet. "Show them," asked Schemion, and Lodden obliged, as Schemion also turned over his aces.

Hand #79: Lodden raised to 135,000 with {a-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} from the small blind, and Mateos three-bet to 350,000 with {6-Hearts}{2-Hearts} from the big blind. Lodden asked how much Mateos was playing, and eventually folded.

Adrian Mateos
Adrian Mateos

Even though Adrian Mateos is still only 20 years old, he is already #2 in Spain's all-time money list.

Mateos won the 2013 WSOP Europe Main Event for exactly €1,000,000 and also took down the Estrellas Madrid Main Event earlier that year. The Spaniard was also outstanding at EPT Deauville, winning a record two turbo events on the very last day of the festival for over €67k combined.

Mateos usually travels with his friend and house-mate Sergio Aido – their house in West London must be absolutely crammed with trophies by now. Aido is the UKIPT London champion, UKIPT Galway High Roller winner and also has a WPT title to his name.
