Mateos says he missed his "favourite tour" during the pandemic, and is enjoying being back in the live scene.

"We've seen some new characters over the last two years," he said. "We've played a lot of online so there are definitely new players who have been big winners online coming into the live scene.

After taking a pot before break from Day 2 chip leader Andriy Lyubovetskiy to grab the lead himself, Canadian star Mike Watson has extended his lead, courtesy of Niall Farrell.

On a flop of {4-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{5-Spades}, Farrell checked his big blind to Watson, who bet 30,000. Farrell responded with a check-raise to 100,000, which Watson called.

On the {4-Clubs} turn, Farrell led for another 100,000 which was met by a stack of four T-100,000 chips from Watson to potentially put Farrell all in.

The Scot quickly folded to preserve his last 200,000 in chips, while Watson is now pushing toward the two million chip mark.
