Adrian Mateos Climbs in GPI Leaderboard

At the age of 21, Spanish poker player Adrian Mateos has already achieved quite a lot in poker. For instance, he holds one gold bracelet for winning a WSOP Europe Main Event and is last year’s EPT Grand Final Main Event champion. In addition, he has accumulated live tournament winnings of more than $4 million, cashing in some of the world’s most prestigious poker events over the past several years.

After the latest Wednesday GPI update, Mateos now ranks 15th in the prestigious poker ranking with a total of 3,496.72 points, with these being collected over a 36-month span.

Recently, the Spanish player finished runner-up to Paul Chanderson in the WPT L.A. Poker Classic No-Limit Hold’em High Roller Turbo 6-Max for $88,200 and 234.30 points. During the EPT Season 12 Dublin, he took 10th place in the €5,300 Main Event, good for a payout of €39,320 and 342.86 points for his GPI score.

Another in-the-money finish that secured him with quite a lot of GPI points was his eighteenth-place finish in the 2016 PCA $25,000 High Roller 8-Handed. Mateos collected $63,720 and 302.76 points for his run into the tournament.

A fourth-place finish in the EPT Season 12 Prague €25,500 High Roller 8-Handed, which took place late in 2015, provided the young Spaniard with a payout of €193,050 and a total of 359.10 points.

About this time last year, Mateos topped the field of the EPT Season 11 Grand Final €10,600 Main Event. The player became the first one from Spain to win an EPT title. At the age of 20, he collected the first-place prize of €1,082,000, his biggest live cash so far, and scooped 495.48 points for his GPI score.

As already mentioned, Mateos is also the holder of one WSOP gold bracelet. The player won his gold piece for emerging victorious in the 2013 WSOP Europe €10,450 Main Event. Apart from the bracelet, he also collected a payout of €1,000,000 for his performance. It was in 2013 again when the player topped the field of the Estrellas Poker Tour Season 4 Madrid €1,100 Main Event, taking home the amount of €103,053 for his deep run into the tournament.
