Mateos stretching clear of his older rivals

Friday, October 25, 2013 6:49 PM Local Time

If you came to rail the final table here at Casino Barrière d'Enghien-les-Bains today you’d be under no illusion what country you were in.

You wouldn’t even need to open your eyes as the cries of, “Allez Papa” ring around the theatre setting every time Fabrice Soullier takes down a pot.

A recent edition to his supporters on the rail was a bottle of the finest French white wine. That leads us to believe his support will get a lot more vocal, as long as their man stays the distance.

He made a great call to knock out his countryman, Jerome Huge, not so long ago. Since then, his stack has withered every so slightly. With 125 big blind average though, there is no need to worry.

This could go on a while.
