Inside the Mind of a Pro: this is where the journey ends

Is Adrián Mateos leaving the Bahamas with a 16th live title under his belt? You're about to find out, with an extended season finale.

Inside the Mind of a Pro - Adrian Mateos 13
Upon writing these few sentences, we'll be hard-pressed not to be affected by a little tinge of nostalgia. Our journey in the Bahamas with Adrián Mateos is ending today, and it won't be a spoiler to anybody to reveal that Inside the Mind of a Pro is about to enter a long hibernation phase. Throughout 2020, the show played an unexpected therapeutic role for many poker players. In a live poker world plagued by a pandemic, where all play had ceased to exist, the Monday morning rendez-vous turned into some sort of magic medicine. For half an hour, we got to live again in a world that had stopped, in a ballroom filled to the brim with unmasked and friendly faces. The sort of scene that seemed innocuous when it was shot back in 2019, but now, 14 months later, looking like a historic document, an archive from an extinct world... or at least one that has been paused for a duration that remains unknown.

This gives us all the more reason to properly enjoy our last sit-down with Adrián. We join the Team Winamax member as he's facing his final two opponents in a competition that had started with 948 of them: the amateur (and currently short-stacked) Aaron Van Blarcum, and the pro Chris Hunichen, still holding the chip lead but perhaps a bit shaken by a confident hero call performed by our hero at the very end of the previous episode. Will the Spaniard leave the Bahamas with more than a million dollars in cash and a 16th live victory under his belt? Let's be honest: since we are gonna have to wait a looooong time before the next episode of our favorite poker show, any other outcome would leave us disappointed!
