Mateos had come into the final table as the second shortest stack but didn't let that stop him from tearing the table apart, nor did it stop the shortest stack, Pedro Oliva, from finishing fourth: performances impressive both. At the other end of the scale, Jose Alvarez converted his final table chip lead into a heads-up finish for €88,512.
