Matthias Eibinger bests Adrian Mateos in Triton Poker Series Main Event

The Austrian poker pro adds over $3 million to his live cash wins

The Triton Poker Series Monte Carlo event ended with Austrian pro Matthias Eibinger overcoming a competitive final table to take the $3.46-million first-place prize. The biggest cash of Eibinger’s career puts him near the top ten money winners of all time.

Eibinger would have to beat a final table with pros like All-Time Money List leader Justin Bonomo, high roller specialist Chris Brewer and Latvian pro Aleks Ponakovs. Twenty-three players would cash in the $100,000 buy-in Main event, which drew 135 entries.

Among the players to cash but not make the final table were Argentinian Nacho Barbero (19th for $212,000), Jason Koon (17th for $236,000), Isaac Haxton (13th for $273,500) and Canadian Daniel Dvoress (10th for $329,000).

Three-time WSOP bracelet winner and Spanish poker icon Adrian Mateos would enter the final table in the chip lead with 125 big blinds. In a distant second was Brewer, with 32 big blinds, followed by Nick Petrangelo (30 BB) and Eibinger (28 BB). Petrangelo was the first to exit after his pocket tens collapsed against Ken Tong’s ace-queen to finish ninth for $391,000.

Bonomo would finish eighth for $491,000, Ponakovs would take $668,000 for seventh before Brewer sent Tong home in sixth for $902,000, and Quan Zhou finished fifth for $1,165,000 after losing his short stack. Brewer would score $1.45 million after falling in fourth, and Santosh Suvarna was the next to go down in third for $1,772,000.

The final two would cut a deal to guarantee each at least $3 million right before the end, where Eibinger paired his kings on the flop to win the title and his biggest career cash, as Mateos would finish second for $3,120,739.
