Adrian Mateos is the reigning WSOPE Main Event champion and just increased his stack to 72,000. Preflop he opened from the button and the big blind three-bet. Call by the Spaniard. On the flop Sergey Tikhonov continued for another 1,500 and Mateos called to do so again on the turn for 5,000.
The river completed the board and the Russian fired 12,400 with another 7,800 behind. Mateos moved all in with the by far superior stack and eventually inspired a fold from his opponent. He showed for king high!
