Stefan Schillhabel

Stefan Schillhabel limped the button, and Adrian Mateos checked his option in the big blind.

The flop was 8d7s3d. Mateos checked, Schillhabel bet 60,000, and   Mateos check-raised to 200,000. Schillhabel called.

The turn was the Th, and Mateos moved all in for 565,000. Schillhabel called instantly to put him at risk.

Schillhabel: 3h7c
Mateos: Qs8h

Schillhabel’s two pair had him one card from the trophy, and Mateos could not catch up this time. The river was the blank 6d, giving Schillhabel the win.

He earned the trophy and the top prize of $493,000 for his efforts.

Adrian Mateos

Mateos was forced to settle for the runner-up consolation prize worth $308,125.

As the chips were tidied up for the winner’s photo, the staff asked Schillhabel if he was interested in jumping into the other event that’s running.

“Late reg the $2k?” one asked.

“No, I get drunk now,” Schillhabel smiled.

While that last hand was being published, the two finalists were playing one of the largest pots of the match.

Joining on the turn, the board showed 9s7c2dAc, and there was close to 400,000 in the pot already. Adrian Mateos checked from the big blind, and Stefan Schillhabel bet 205,000. Mateos called.

The river was the 9c, and Mateos checked again. Schillhabel pondered for a couple moments before pounding the felt with an open palm, checking behind.

“Seven,” Mateos announced.

Schillhabel quickly rolled over Ah2s, though, winning the pot with aces up. He has Mateos on the ropes now.

Stefan Schillhabel

Stefan Schillhabel quickly wrestled the lead back from Adrian Mateos, but the two men continued to hover around even for a few orbits.

Mateos limped the button in the last hand, which may be the first time he’s done so in the heads-up match. Schillhabel checked his option.

The flop was Js9s5s. Schillhabel checked, Mateos bet 30,000, and Schillhabel called. They both checked through the Ad turn. The river was the 2d, and Schillhabel bet 95,000. Mateos had picked off a recent bluff on similar action, and he called this bet down, too.

Schillhabel showed Jd3d, though, winning the pot with a pair of jacks.

Stefan Schillhabel – 1,530,000 (51 bb)
Adrian Mateos – 970,000 (32 bb)
