Winamax Live Sessions Spain: the madness resumes!

By in

The crème de la crème of Spanish poker is back in front of our cameras for a third season that's already shaping up to be legendary.

Winamax Live Sessions S03E01
The craziest cash game of the Iberian peninsula is back! If you've followed the first two seasons of Winamax Live Sessions, you know exactly what to expect. The cast of this new edition includes the best of the previous seasons, with the addition of newcomers such as Ka Kwan Lau aka Kaju, winner of the $25,000 PLO at the WSOP 2023, and Lánder Lijo, whose reputation in high roller tournaments is well established.

For their baptism of fire, the two rookies will have to contend with Team Winamax members Adrián Mateos and Joao Vieira, Vicente Delgado (considered to be one of the best cash game players in the world), Sergi Fernández and Raúl Mestre, poker GOATs from the other side of the Pyrenees, and the ever unpredictable Yaman Nakdali. This former MMA fighter is the epitome of the 'LAG' player, guaranteeing an unrivalled level of intensity and moves out of nowhere in every game. No, that's not a spoiler, but a scientific certainty.

The first session of the season kicks off with eight protagonists engaged in a €50/€100 blinds, €100 ante BB cash game, with a €200 option. How big are the stacks? Oh, not much: just €10,000 to €50,000 in chips, no biggie. Re-buys are of course allowed in the event of a setback, and there's no doubt about it: there will be plenty!

Oh yes, by the way: the 7-2 rule is still in force. For those who don't know, every player who wins a hand with the worst hand in Texas Hold'em (regardless of whether there's a showdown or not) will be rewarded with a BB from each of their opponents. As a reminder, this rule was at the root of what Adrian Mateos himself described as Tom Bedell's bluff of the year last season. In other words, all 7-2 combos are going to be part of every 3-bet and 4-bet preflop range more than ever!

Aside from the game itself, we'd like to offer you a word of advice, spectator. Try to enjoy the atmosphere at the table as it should be. All these players know each other very well... and you can feel it in the conversations and anecdotes, some of them insane, that you'll overhear during the games. And even though the atmosphere is festive and relaxed, that doesn't stop our guerrillas from hitting each other in the biggest pots of the evening. And with a smile, of course.

Trust us: we're off to another great season of Winamax Live Sessions. And if you had any doubts, we're just like you: we can't wait to find out what happens next!
