150 blinds won't be too much for Adrián Mateos to handle, especially given the competition he's facing.
"This is a very difficult table. There are only good players here." You will have heard these words once, twice, even three times during our official launch episode of the latest season of Inside the Mind of a Pro, and you have no reason to doubt them since they were uttered by Adrián Mateos, our resident highroller encyclopedist. The statement continues to ring true in the second episode we're releasing today. Last week, Adrián got off to a good start in the $10K Highroller of the 2019 Carribean Poker Party, thanks in part to his takings from fellow teammate Davidi Kitai, and a well-timed bluff with Ace High. We're getting back to the Spaniard as he's entering the fourth hour of the first day of play, equipped with 150 blinds, which is never too much given the caliber of the opposition. We've already spotted the jovial (yet scary) Anatoly Filatov, and the compadreJavier Fernandez. More danger is about to come. That's how it goes in the shark-infested waters of the highroller circuit: there are no quiet moments... and that's all the better for us, priviliged observors of those rare and terryfing species!
