XL Inferno #126 - $5,200 XL Inferno Super High Roller Chip In

Buy-inDatePlayersPrize pool
$5,200May 16121$810,000

Players started the tournament with 20,000 in chips and had the option to do a rebuy in case they lost all their chips. At the end of the registration period, there were 121 players and 41 rebuys to create a total prize pool of $810,000 which was divided among the last 18 players.

Long before the money was reached, Chris "888Moorman" Moorman, Artem "veeea" Vezhenkov, Thomas "WushuTM" Muhlocker, Doug "DougPolkPKR" Polk, Scott "AggroSantos" Margereson, Mike "SirWatts" Watson, Roman "Romeopro33" Romanovskyi, Jussi "jnevanli" Nevanlinna and Sergio "zcedrick" Aido all busted from the tournament.

Before the bubble came in sight, the tournament lost Niklas "tutten7" Astedt, Dominik "888Dominik" Nitsche, Adrian "ADRI_ATM" Mateos, Jonathan "chut_up" Von Fleet, Parker "888tonkaaa" Talbot and Anton "anteen" Bertilsson. On the bubble, "aIderfaIder" lost with his pocket jacks against ace-five and he was the last player to leave the tournament empty-handed.

The final table was reached after more than one hour and it started with just seven players. On the bubble of the final table, "sweetness158" and Robin "Inho" Yitalo were both busted so only seven players took a seat.

In quick succession, "iBotPauseNot" (seventh, $32,400), "Vickktor" (sixth, $40,500) and "AlreadyHigh" (fifth, $48,600) busted. From that moment, it was a long grind with the final four players. In the end, "ZeusLAZER" was sent to the rail in the fourth place after losing with ace-ten against ace-jack.

Fabricio "DrMiKee" Gonzalez ended up all in for his last nine big blinds with ace-six against the ace-seven of chip leader "spud_gun888." Once again, the best hand held up and Gonzalez was sent to the rail in third place for $98,415.

Once again, "Kannwas" made it to the final table after finished in second place in the $2,100 High Roller earlier this series. This time he started with a 3:1 deficit and once again he couldn't win. On a king-five-seven-six-ten board, he bet-called all in with eight-ten for the second pair. That wasn't good enough because spud_gun888 showed six-ten for two pair.

Kannwas had to settle for $129,600 and spud_gun888 secured the top spot for $186,300.
