Mateos Doubles

From early position, [Removed:17] opened for 2,500 and Ali Reza Fatehi called from the cutoff. Over on the button, Adrian Mateos squeezed to 7,000. Big blind Simon Mattsson cold four-bet to 28,000 and Yan and Fatehi instantly folded. Mateos counted out his stack and pushed all in for 98,000. Mattsson called instantly.

Adrian Mateos: {K-Spades}{K-Hearts}
Simon Mattsson: {A-Hearts}{K-Clubs}

Mateos flopped top set but wasn't home safe just yet on {K-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}{10-Hearts}. The {7-Diamonds} on the turn was a blank and the {7-Hearts} on the river didn't change anything for Mattsson either. Double up for Mateos, Mattsson short.

More Players Arrive

[user38873] • Nível 1: 500-1,000, 100 ante

Half way through level one, there was around one dozen players waiting with tickets in their hands. The tournament staff was diligently opening up new tables to accommodate the new arrivals, which include such familiar names as Vladimir Troyanovskiy, Czech November Niner Vojtech Ruzicka, David "MissOracle" Yan, Thomas Muehloecker, Steve O'Dwyer and Jean-Noel Thorel.

Thorel finished runner-up to Rainer Kempe in this very event one year ago, while Yan won the EPT13 Malta €25,750 High Roller earlier this season. Muehloecker also already has an EPT High Roller title to his name and bagged up a big stack in the EPT13 Prague Main Event last night.

Early Hit to Fatehi's Stack

Webjoker • Nível 1: 500-1,000, 100 ante

From the hijack (or under the gun plus one, on the still short handed table), Simon Mattsson raised to 2,200. Big blind Ali Reza Fatehi called and then lead out for 2,500 on {9-Clubs}{9-Spades}{10-Hearts}. Mattsson called in position.

The {3-Spades} hit the turn and Fatehi checked his option, then called the 7,000 bet Mattsson asked of him.

With the {8-Hearts} completing the board, Fatehi checked a second time. Mattsson contemplated what to do for about a minute before betting 18,000. Fatehi instantly reached for chips, thought about it for 20 seconds or so with the chips in his hands, and called.

Mattsson showed {Q-Clubs}{Q-Spades} and Fatehi quietly slid his cards into the muck.

The Defending Champion is Here

[user38873] • Nível 1: 500-1,000, 100 ante

Among the first batch of players to show up right from the start was also defending champion Rainer Kempe, followed by plenty of notables on the international poker circuit. Charlie Carrel is attempting to go one spot better than in the €50,000 Super High Roller and best poker buddy Ben Heath also took a seat as well.

Who Will Win the Last Ever EPT Single-Day High Roller?

Rainer Kempe - EPT Prague €25,500 Single-Day High Roller Winner 2015
Rainer Kempe - EPT Prague €25,500 Single-Day High Roller Winner 2015

In two hours from now at 12.30 p.m. local time, the Hilton Hotel Prague is calling all high stakes regulars and poker enthusiasts alike for the very last edition of the PokerStars EPT Single-Day High Roller.

The event, born from an idea of Bryn Kenney a few seasons ago, comes with a price tag of €25,500 and many of the EPT13 Prague €50,000 Super High Roller participants jumped into Day 1a of the Main Event yesterday in order to free up time for today. It is the penultimate chance to lift an EPT High Roller trophy before the rebranding of the series in 2017, adding further prestige to the showdown.

Defending champion of the tournament is Germany's Rainer Kempe, who emerged victorious in an 80-entry strong field in 2015 after defeating Jean-Noel Thorel in heads up for a massive payday of €539,000. Thorel has already been in action here in Prague in the Super High Roller and busted on Day 1a of the Main Event. Super High Roller runner-up Charlie Carrel, Ramin Hajiyev, Thomas Muehloecker and Anthony Zinno were among those to get through to Day 2 and will also be likely candidates to join the action today.

All participants will receive 100,000 in chips and the levels last 30 minutes each. A single re-entry is allowed during the first eight levels, registration will close as soon as the cards get back underway for level nine. Expect a long day of poker, because the tournament is known to create a fierce battle into the morning hours before the winner lifts the trophy.
