  • Which player won the most money on Day 6 of the XL Inferno Series? "MisterN411" was one of them.

On the sixth day of the 888poker XL Inferno Series, three new tournaments were scheduled. Most of the attention went out to the $200,000 High Roller, where some massive prizes were "up for grabs."


XL Inferno #16 - $200,000 High Roller

Buy-inDatePlayersPrize pool
$2,600May 15131$327,500

After more than nine hours of play, XL Inferno #16 - $200,000 High Roller crowned a winner. "MisterN411 claimed the victory and the first prize of $90,063 after beating "trino11" in the deciding heads-up.

This event, with a buy-in of $2,600, saw 84 players register and those players made 47 rebuys to get a total amount of 131 entries. They created a total prize pool of $327,500 with 12 places paid.

It took a while to get into the money but in the end, "InJeBakkes" was the last player finishing empty-handed. That player lost a huge pot with ace-queen against ace-king, with lots of short stacks still in the tournament. After the players reached the money, the tournament was down to a final table pretty quickly.

"TrollKonst8", "FItip4ldI" and Simon "Isildur1337x" Mattsson were eliminated in quick succession, with the latter mentioned losing his stack with king-queen against pocket kings.

Just nine players went to the final table with "trino11" as the chip leader. In fifteen minutes, the field got down to five players. "Biack88" (ninth, $9,825), "maxim2880" (eighth, $11,463), "VALIUM4WIN" (seventh, $13,919) and "PulledPorker" (sixth, $17,194) lost their stacks.

When play reached the final five, players had much more space, and it took a while before another player was sent to the rail. After quite some time, "alwayswin111" lost all of their chips with king-jack against the pocket eights of "trino11". "wellyxx" (fourth, $31,113) busted with king-jack against ace-eight to get the tournament three-handed.

Three-handed lasted a long time, but eventually "cockbandit44" was eliminated in third place for $45,850. The Canadian lost the final all in with king-nine against eight-nine and had to settle for 'bronze.'

Just after the heads up started, "MisterN411" took a big 10:1-lead against "trino11". The Dutch player didn't need much time to secure the victory. In the last hand, pocket kings held against queen-four. "MisterN411" received the first prize of $90,063 while the runner-up had to settle for $60,588.
