Day 6 of the 888poker XL Inferno series belonged to Leocir José 'LeoJoseCarne' Carneiro, who rose above the field to claim two victories on Friday. The first conquest for 'LeoJoseCarne' came in the $109 buy in Lightning Six Max event, where he won $2,589 as a result of a heads up deal made with Anton 'toshapiter86' Vinokurov. Carneiro followed that win up with his second victory of the day came in the $30 Deepstack Swordfish, where he won $3,158 for beating a field of 608 entrants. After falling short in the Lightning, where he finished second, Vinokurov rebounded with a win in the $30 Swordfish that was worth $3,325. The heftiest first place sum was won by 'BustiJauli' in the $150 Knockout tournament. 'BustiJauli' claimed $5,921 for first place along with $492 in bounties. Other winners of over $5,000 were 'PuntSonPunt' in the $160 Crocodile. Additional winners were 'Smithstudent' for topping the $55 Breeze field for $2,903, 'konnhand' in the $55 Monsoon for $4,389, and 'beny76xx' in the $35 Friday Challenge for $4,048 as a result of a four-way deal.

[caption width="640"] 888poker's XL Blizzard offers plenty of big-time opportunities to win big-time money.[/caption] Winter is here and so is another one of 888poker’s mammoth online series, this one, the final of the XL trilogy, is XL Blizzard and features 34 events and over $2.9 million in guarantees. As with all of 888poker’s online series they’ve packed it full of big money tournaments that bring out both the best players in the online scene as well as value hunters that are hoping that this will be the series where they make a name for themselves with a massive score to match. So even though the schedule for XL Blizzard has been trimmed down, giving players every opportunity to play in absolutely all events, here’s a selection of the five largest tournaments on the schedule that will most likely radically change the bankrolls of the eventual winners. When: January 18What: $80,000 Opening EventBuy-in: $109 While Event #1, the Opening Event, does not carry the biggest guarantee, nor the largest buy-in, the first event of each of the XL Series has been an event worth coming out for. Players will likely want to get a jump on the bevy of promotions that come along with XL Blizzard, including bonuses for multi-time champions, bonuses for multi-cash players and even a potential spot in the Champion of Champions tournament which is awarding a seat to the Main Event of the World Series of Poker. If the promotions do their job, the $80k guarantee should be smashed as players flock to the Opening Event in hopes of getting their series off to a solid start. When: January 21 What: $200,000 Tune Up Buy-in: $160 January 21 has a number of big-ticket items but perhaps the largest with the most value is Event #10 $200,000 Tune Up. Starting just a half hour after Event #9 $120,000 Mega Deep kicks off, it boasts an additional $80,000 in guaranteed money and with a buy-in of $160, it’s $55 cheaper than the Mega Deep. While the structure is likely to be faster, the Tune Up has a great guarantee-to-buy-in ratio and will no doubt be packed with players on a day of big-time tournaments. When: January 21 What: $200,000 Whale Buy-In: $1,050 One of the largest buy-ins on the entire schedule is the $1,050 of Event #12 $200,000 Whale. The Whale, a staple of the 888poker regular weekly schedule, brings out some of the top grinders who try to navigate the slightly smaller field in search of the large five-figure payday. Back on Day 1 of the XL Eclipse schedule ‘CllsDntMttr’ took down the first Whale for almost $65,000 and one of the largest paydays of the series. This event could very well smash the guarantee and award an equivalent payout. When: January 23 What: $250,000 High Roller Buy-in: $2,100 Still all the rage, if a tournament has High Roller in the header it’s bound to bring out the biggest names in the game. Sure the field will be tough, but the payout will likely be huge. Depending on how many entrants flock to this High Roller the top spot payout could push the upper five-figures and potentially even a $100,000 score. When: January 28 What: $1,000,000 Main Event Buy-in: $1,050 A million dollar guaranteed prize pool, live or online, is a major tournament and the XL Blizzard Main Event will no doubt be a spectacle. With players being fed into the Main Event both through the standard step satellites as well as a pair of Mega satellites that take place over the course of the series, it shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone if the guarantee is smashed. The aforementioned ‘CllsDntMttr’ also happened to be the winner of the XL Eclipse Main Event for over $273,000 and while this Main Event does not have the same guarantee, the certainty of a six-figure score, which would be a career-defining score to many grinders out there, will likely attract a healthy field making it the first major 888poker tournament of 2018. Not to worry if these big-time tournaments are out of your bankroll. Not only are there many ways to win your way into events like the Main Event, XL Blizzard is jam-packed with a variety of tournaments to fit the schedule and budget of just about every online grinder.
[caption width="640"] 888poker's winter series, XL Blizzard, offers over .9 million in guarantees starting on January 18[/caption] 888poker’s XL Championship series returns for another go-around from January 18-28.

XL Blizzard is the end of the XL Championship trilogy as announced by 888poker back in April. While previous iterations of the XL Series bombarded players with massive schedules, testing their tournament fortitude, the upcoming XL Blizzard has paired down its offerings to a healthy 34 events, affording players with an appetite for guaranteed prize pools the time to hop into every event they wish. While every event carries a guarantee worth playing for, highlighted events of the 11-day affair include the $80,000 Opening Event, a full day of 888poker’s trademark “Crazy 8” tournaments, a $2,100 $250,000 guaranteed High Roller as well as the $1,000,000 Main Event for which there are multiple satellites helping feed players into the big-money event. Sure, there may be fewer events during XL Blizzard than previous XL series', but 888poker is packing it full of promotions for tournament and leaderboard winners and even those who feel the sting of going out on the bubble. Winning one tournament in any given series is tough enough, winning two puts a player in an exclusive club and three, well, that might mark the heater of a lifetime. But if somehow, someway a player is about to find their way to five victories over the 34 event series, not only will they achieve instant online legend status but 888poker will also make them a millionaire. The XL Blizzard $1,000,000 Winners promotion will pay cold hard cash to those players who win multiple titles. Win two events, win an extra $1,000. Win three and they’ll make it $10,000. Four victories is a bonus $100,000 and five or more puts seven-figures in your bank account, paying $1,000,000. The bonuses don’t stop with winning multiple titles. Players who make three or more final tables in the XL Blizzard series will receive a $600 tournament ticket. Similarly, if a player cashes in eight or more of the 34 events, 888poker will gift them a $215 tournament ticket. Players who finish in the Top 50 of the series tournament leaderboard will get an additional opportunity for even more prizes. The Top 50 will be entered into the XL Blizzard Champion of Champions event, the winner of which will receive an exclusive package putting them into the $10,000 Main Event of the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas in July including travel expenses, a stay at the Vdara hotel and an 888Live poker kit. Beyond first place, the runner-up will also get a WSOP prize in the form of a $3,000 Crazy 8 WSOP package as well as a $1,050 tournament ticket. Third place also gets the $3,000 WSOP Crazy 8 package. Fourth and fifth get a $1,050 tournament ticket, and the rest of the final table receive a $600 tournament ticket. In fact, 10th-40th place will be getting a free $55 tournament ticket. For those 41st-50th, well, someone has to go home empty-handed. Finally, for those players who bear the burden of being the last person in the tournament not to make any money, during XL Blizzard, 888poker is offering a shot at redemption. The “Bubble of Bubbles” offers free entry to players who bubble any of the 34 events. The winner of the “Bubble of Bubbles” event will win one of those $3,000 Crazy 8 WSOP packages, second thru fourth take home a $160 tournament ticket while the rest of the final table pick up a $55 tournament ticket. Players can also expect plenty of 888poker pros to be logging on to defend their home turf. 888poker ambassadors including Chris Moorman, Dominik Nitsche, Parker ‘tonkaaaa’ Talbot, Natalie Hof, Sofia Lovgren and more will all be in the mix. Satellites a running for a variety of the events and players can get started working their way up through the steps for as little as a penny.
