After nearly eight hours of play, Germany’s “HSV_Gandi” outlasted a field of 255 entrants plus 71 rebuys to win the XL Inferno Event #17: $100,000 High Roller at 888poker for $20,450.

Also joining this player on the podium were “Rocket_Aces” (second $15,000) and XL Inferno Event #1: $75,000 Opening Event champion “MorayEEEEEL” (third – $11,300).

The $320 tournament provided an extra $2,200 in added value to those that cashed thanks to the lofty $100,000 not being met with the buy-ins.

Not every player could afford the biggest buy-in ($320) of the day or needed a (smaller) second chance, and that’s why there was a Mini edition of the High Roller on the schedule. This tournament had a buy-in of $55, and there were 802 players competing for a prize pool of $40,100. Every finalist in this tournament would secure him- or herself of $602 but all eyes were on the top prize of $7,575.

Russia’s “MAMOHT_T” got his win after defeating “Shovelin20” in the final heads-up. The winner received a prize of $7,575 while the runner-up got $5,494 in his account.
