Evelyn Mateo has been quietly working up her stack all afternoon but after recently changing tables has gone on a bit of a rush up to 280k. The last chunk came from Jose Montes, who was on the short stack in the hand.
Mateo opened the pot from the hijack to 6500 and was 3-bet shoved on by Montes in the cutoff for 38k total. After thinking it through, Mateo made the call and the hands were tabled…
Mateo 9♥9♦ vs Montes A♥8♥ Pot: ~82k
There was no sweat on the flop and Mateo needed to only dodge an Ace on the turn and river and managed to do so. Mateo eliminated a very strong player from Day 1 play and also positions herself well for the last level of the night.
