Mateos ended the day with 560,500 in chips after having a spectacular last level where he gained nearly 400,000 of those. He also won one of the biggest pots of the day a task made doubly difficult by the fact that Berent had five-bet preflop and checked the flop. Berent then barrelled the turn and shoved the river after Mateos checked both, and the Spaniard made the call.
With just six eliminations until the money, Mateos will go into Day 3 in prime position with £200,000 and a seat in the WPT World Championship available to the winner.
Meanwhile, anyone who makes it into the last 45 players will be guaranteed a minimum payout of £6,000. With the blinds starting at 2,000/4,000 with a 500 ante, there are six players under 20 big blinds who will be looking nervously over their shoulder.
