2020 PokerStars WCOOP: Adrian Mateos Wins Titles Three and Four

Adrian Mateos

Adrian ‘Amadi_017’ Mateos once again underlined his supreme artistry in the field of No Limit Hold’em multi-table tournaments (MTTs), by taking down two World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) titles on PokerStars last week.

With four WCOOP titles to his name, the Winamax pro proves that using the away changing rooms presents no problem for a man of his stature. The first of Mateos’s victories came when he stomped all over the 201-entrant field in Event #28 (H) $2,100 No Limit Hold’em 8-Max, Turbo PKO Freezeout. He then followed that up with a whopper.

Event #25 (H): $25,000 No Limit Hold’em 8-Max, Super High Roller Sunday Slam attracted 71-unique entrants, and 35 re-entries and Mateos defeated Fedor Holz, heads-up, for the title, after the pair had secured a pretty even-steven heads-up deal.

The win means Mateos joins Dzmitry Urbanovich, ‘nilsef’, Andrey Zaichenko, Gleb Tremzin and Joao Vieira as a four-time WCOOP champion. The Spaniard has also won three World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelets and a European Poker Tour (EPT) title.


You don’t just see it on slices of roast beef.

In taking second, Holz continued his impressive streak of running well that has seen him collect a second WSOP bracelet after winning the $25,000 No Limit Hold’em Heads-Up title on GGPoker for a million bucks. In 2014, Holz won the WCOOP Main Event, so PokerStars is a happy stomping ground for the young German star.

A special shoutout also goes to Luke ‘Bit2Easy’ Reeves who booked a third-place win for $353,117 while finishing second to the PocketFives World #1: Conor Beresford in Event #33 (H): $5,200 No Limit Hold’em 8-Max, High Roller.
