888poker is gearing up to host the latest edition of its super-popular XL Inferno series and PokerNews is your one-stop shop for news, recaps, and more throughout the $1.5 million guaranteed festival.
The XL Inferno features 34 action-packed tournaments with buy-ins starting at only $5.50 and increasing all the way to $320. Guarantees are also impressive, starting at $12,000 and soaring to $500,000, the latter reserved for the $250 buy-in XL Inferno Main Event.
PokerNews is the place to be for all your XL Inferno needs. We’re bringing you daily recaps featuring reports of the day’s big winners, maybe you’ll feature in one of them?
Our elite team of live reporters are also on hand to bring you live updates from four of the biggest XL Inferno event. You can rail your favorite player to glory, or see your own 888poker alias adorning the famous PokerNews pages.
Tune into our live reporting pages throughout the $1.5 million XL Inferno to follow all the action, as it happens, from this amazing quartet of tournaments:
- XL Inferno #1: $75,000 Opening Event
- XL Inferno #10: $150,000 Tune Up
- XL Inferno #17: $100,000 High Roller
- XL Inferno #32: $500,000 Main Event
The XL Inferno Main Event is set to be massive, if last year’s tournament is anything to go by. A field of 2,136 players created a $501,960 prize pool that the top 207 finishers shared.
It ended in a three-handed deal that saw the final trio walk away with a share of $191,297. Brazil’s “lucasfalves9” busted in third, but not before locking up $55,543. Another Brazilian, “LuisRRRRR”, fell at the final hurdle and banked $65,502. This left Russia’s “Den1sk4PP” as the last player standing, an accolade that came with a cool $70,252 prize.
