  1. Of the 12 events on the Day 12 888poker XL Inferno, none were bigger than the $215 Quarterback. Thomas 'WushuTM' Muhlocker beat out the 587-player field to win just over $26,000 - the biggest single score on Thursday. That final table also included Adrian 'ADRI_ATM' Mateos. Fresh off of his PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker win, the Spanish phenom finished sixth for $5,892.62. Brazil's 'PudimSedutor' won Event #146 ($30 Deepstack Swordfish) for $4,011.86 and then final-tabled the Quarterback, finishing ninth for $2,079.75. He was one of two players to pull off that feat on Thursday. 'edtastylez92' won Event #144 ($109 Lightning Six Max) for $5,356 and then final-tabled Event #149 ($55 $60,000 R&A), finishing seventh for $2,471.62. Event #149 went to 'edyvpakistan' who took home $14,365.84 after outlasting the 618-player field. The 424 rebuys and 479 add-ons pushed the total prize pool to $76,050, well past the $60,000 guarantee.

  4. Another 13 888poker XL Inferno events were on the schedule on Wednesday with a number of top-100 players grabbing big scores. The biggest winner on the day was 'RagingStoic' who took down Event #137 ($109 Eight Max) for just over $13,000. He beat out #27-ranked 'Namlleh' heads-up for the win. Leandro 'Dmilito22' Bustillo, the #2-ranked Argentinian in the world, beat out 257 other players to win Event #134 ($160 Crocodile) for $7,914.15. Bustillo is currently ranked #53 in the world and should make an appearance in the top 50 when the rankings are updated this week thanks to this victory.

Along with the second place finish, he had a third place finish (Event #140 - $109 Tornado) and a sixth place finish (Event #131 - $109 Lightning Six Max). The three cashes were worth a combined $9,675.25. Bustillo was the only player to make three final tables but there were seven others who made two. Brazil's 'jxangai' won Event #139 ($35 Wednesday Challenge) for $8,167.68 and then finished fifth in Event #136 ($109 Lightning Six Max) for $1,281.12. To go along with his runner-up finish in Event $137, 'Namlleh' also posted fifth place finish in Event #131.

  9. In 2016, 888poker took the Super XL Series to new heights with bigger guarantees and a deeper schedule. Apparently, they weren't even close to being done with the improvements. This week the company announced they have rebranded the series and once again upped the guarantees. Over the course of the next year the company will run three separate XL Championship Series: XL Inferno in May, XL Eclipse in September, and XL Blizzard in January 2018. The XL Inferno runs May 7 - 21 with a total of 197 events and guarantees totaling over $7.5 million. THE MAIN EVENTS Five different Main Events on the final day of the schedule give players of all bankroll sizes a chance at collecting a huge payday including the $1,500,000 guaranteed Main Event with a $1,050 buy-in.

  14. 888poker’s May super series XL Inferno is right around the corner. The series, which takes place from May 10-20 consists of 34 events guaranteeing a total of nearly $3 million. Then, to wrap the high-powered event up, there will be a $1,000,000 guaranteed Main Event. In anticipation of players battling it out win XL Championships, here are some PocketFivers to keep an eye on heading into the series. Having found success on 888poker during the month of April, these players hope to continue their winning ways during XL Inferno. Former Worldwide #1-ranked player from Sweden Anton ‘VnilaVader’ Herrmann cashed six times on 888poker in April. His runner-up finish in the April 22 edition of the $100,000 Whale gave him one of the largest cashes of the month, netting him $23,845 for his efforts. In total, ‘VnilaVader’ won roughly $30,000 on the site in April. That was good for the top spot in big winners on 888poker for April. The total leaves him less than $15,000 shy of the major milestone of $4 million in lifetime earnings. Though Brazil’s ‘JoaoMarcos’ didn’t put in a ton of volume online during April, the times he did play he really made count. That includes the three podium finishes out of his five 888poker cashes. What really sealed the deal for a successful month was his runner-up finish in the $100,000 Whale on April 1. The payout was no joke, a whopping $20,400 added to his bankroll, setting him up for a solid XL Championship series. Top 100 player, Russia’s ‘AloofRevolver’ (aka ‘CalmRevolver’) also found recent success on 888poker. The Worldwide #86-ranked player destroyed the $215 buy-in $100,000 Sunday Mega Deep tournament on April 22 for over $19,000. Four days later he tacked on another victory, taking down the $10,000 Thursday Cube for $3,250. His April helped push him up over $100,000 in lifetime earnings on 888poker and over $1.2 million in total. Another player to watch is Moscow, Russia’s ‘papan9_p$’ (aka ‘sweet_Dr34ms’). A Worldwide top 50 player (#45) ‘papan9_p$’ racked up 12 cashes on the online site in April. His efforts were headlined by his victory in the April 8 edition of the $15,000 Turbo Mega Deep which brought him just under $5,400 for the win. A regular at both mid-stakes and higher buy-in tournaments, it’s very likely that Russia’s #6-ranked player will be in the mix just about every day during the series. Sweden’s ‘machiavelli3’ (aka ‘cuadrado12’) found himself at nine final tables on 888poker during the month of April. The longtime grinder and Sweden’s #14-ranked player topped a field of 140 players in the April 11 edition of the $15,000 GREAT 8 for $3,584. During the month he posted four four-figure scores on the site and collect over $12,000 in earnings. It was a big part of his efforts to surpass $2.5 million in lifetime earnings, which he accomplished in April. Also of note was Finland’s #3-ranked online pro ‘Emeriaa’ (aka ‘wellyxx’) who finished in third in the April 22 edition of the $100,000 Whale for $16,240. Also, top 10 crusher from Argentina Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone (aka ‘lasochobi’) scored a pair of final table finishes in April to take home $14,500 which he will most likely fire into XL Inferno. With buy-ins ranging from as little as $5 and a High Roller of $2,600, each one of these April 888poker winners will have their opportunity to jump into the XL Inferno fire. All of the action begins on May 10 at 888poker.

  15. Day seven of 888poker’s XL Inferno brought out all the high rollers. There were three tournaments on tap, including the biggest buy-in tournament of the entire schedule - the $2,600 High Roller with a $200,000 guarantee.Of course, with some of the largest buy-ins of the series also come some of the biggest payouts. Twelve players added five-figure scores to their bankroll while another 17 entrants walked with four-figures. XL Inferno is now officially past the halfway point. The next time players are likely to see prize pools this big again will be during the $1,050 buy-in $1,000,000 guaranteed Main Event which takes place on the final day of the Championship Series, May 20. Event #16 - $200,000 High Roller If any of 888poker’s biggest players were hanging on the sidelines during XL Inferno, the $2,600 buy-in $200,000 guaranteed High Roller was sure to bring them out. And bring them out it did, 84 players and their 47 rebuys helped destroy the guarantee and augment the prize pool to $327,500. This easily made it the biggest tournament of the series thus far. Along with the largest prize pool comes the biggest winner of the series to date as ‘MisterN411’ from the Netherlands took it down for $90,062. There were some pretty big pay jumps in the final four as ‘MisterN411’ earned nearly $30,000 more than ‘trino11’ who finished as the runner up for $60,587. PocketFiver Tomi ‘wellyxx’ Brouk from Finland will use his fourth place prize of over $31,000 to propel himself to over $6 million in lifetime earnings. The current Worldwide #50-ranked player Doug ‘OU_dlanger610’ Lang made a deep run, bowing out in sixth place for just over $17,000. Also of note: the current #1-ranked player in the world ‘C Darwin2’, playing under his 888poker screen name ‘Isildur1337x’, min-cashed the High Roller for $8,187. Event #17 - $100,000 Mini High Roller 413 players and their 232 rebuys helped increase the Mini High Roller’s prize pool to $129,000. The Netherlands scored their second victory of the day as ‘I__AM_ZLATAN’ bested the field and took home $24,755 for the win. PocketFiver ‘CalmRevolver’ finished in second place adding $18,382 to his $1.3 million in lifetime earnings. A number of other PocketFivers earned four-figure scores in the Mini including former top-50 ranked ‘jadedjason’ from Canada who finished in sixth for $5,482. Russia’s ’Ti0373’ (7th), Luis ‘eduardogarla’ Garla (8th) and Kim ‘Chipsssssss’ Deeker (9th) all made their way to the final table of this one. Event #18 - $30,000 Late High Roller The Late High Roller saw another 181 entrants and their 79 rebuys create a healthy $39,000 prize pool. The tournament sped to a finished, awarding all the prize money in just over 6 hours and 30 minutes. The Late tournament saw even more PocketFivers reaching the final table as Russia’s ‘kassigor’ booked the win for $8,385. He defeated ‘GangstaGo’ denying the Ukranian a second XL Inferno championship and the $1,000 bonus that would have went with it. ‘GangstaGo’ has now finished in each of the top three spots, including his victory in Event #4. For his runner-up performance in this tournament, he added another $6,045 to his XL Inferno haul. Former Worldwide #1-ranked player TJ ‘petitetete’ Ulmer from Canada finished in sixth for $1,950. Ulmer adds that to his already impress $9.1 million in lifetime earnings. Finally, PocketFiver ‘Tydarax’ from Germany wrapped up his tournament in ninth place for $780. 888poker’s XL Inferno continues on Wednesday with three 8-Max tournaments and another $80,000 in guarantees up for grabs.

  16. After a massive Sunday, 888poker’s spring championship series, XL Inferno, took a bit of a breather on Monday. Understanding that many players may take the beginning of the week off, the XL Inferno toned the schedule down, but still catered to those who remain on the grind by featuring two tournaments and $55,000 worth of guarantees. Event #14 - $40,000 Rebuy & Add-On The larger of the two tournaments on tap had 361 players post the $55 buy-in with 350 rebuys and 178 add-ons. Altogether the fast-action tournament bested the guarantee and pushed the prize pool to $44,450. Eight of the final nine players added at least four-figures to their bankroll. PocketFivers went one-two in the main contest of the day. ’GoFighter’, the #1-ranked player in all of Belarus, took down the tournament and took home the largest score of the day with his $8,530 first place prize. He overcame the efforts of runner-up ‘cuadrado12’, Sweden’s #11-ranked grinder, who finished the contest by taking home $6,334. ‘GoFighter’ sits just outside the PocketFives Worldwide Top 100, currently ranked #125 in the world and is rapidly working his way to the milestone of $1 million in lifetime earnings.

Event #15 - $15,000 Mini Rebuy & Add-on Of the few tournaments that have provided overlay, it hasn’t traditionally been those with a more manageable buy-in. But on this Monday, the $5 barely missed the mark and was not able to exceed the promised $15,000. That said, plenty of players enjoyed the added value as 1,159 runners managed 1,247 rebuys and 517 add-ons. In the end, the top four were going to turn their $5 purchases into over $1,000 paydays. PocketFiver Filipe ‘Ov3rTiLt’ Sampaio outlasted the entire field, raking in $2,589 for first place. The XL Inferno prize will be added to his over $430,000 in lifetime earnings as he celebrated a score that ranks in the top 5 of 2018 for him on his Instagram page.

The High Rollers finally get to jump into the XL Inferno action on Tuesday as three events will get underway including the $2,600 $200,000 High Roller.

  17. Day 3 of 888poker’s XL Inferno series focused on their signature Crazy 8 tournaments. Three tournaments guaranteeing, you guessed it, $80,000 in total prize pools. After two days of knocking it out of the park in terms of attendance, the online crowds on Saturday slowed down a little - perhaps saving some energy for Sunday’s massive XL schedule - and two out of the three tournaments provided a little extra value to players in terms of overlay. The day brought three new XL Inferno Champions, all of which will have their opportunity to vie for one of the $2,700 packages that will two players to the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas to play the live version of the Crazy 8’s tournament that gets underway on June 30. Event #6 - $50,000 Crazy 8 The first event of the day was the $88 buy-in version of the Crazy 8 tournament. Attendance was a little light with 438 entries, 153 of which were rebuys. This put those who did fire up the online poker client in a great spot to receive some extra value as the tournament provided about $15,000 in overlay (just over $11,000 if you roll the rake into the prize pool). Any way you look at it, there was some big-time extra money up for grabs. So the prize pool was an even $50,000 and everyone from 8th place on up was going to earn a minimum of $1,000. The top prize of the day, however, was won by ‘eltxupacabra’ when they defeated the UK’s ‘ITonya’ head-up after ten and a half hours of play. eltxupacabra’ took home $9,500 while the British player settled for $7,000 as the runner-up. PocketFiver ’n0tori0us_B’ from Lithuania made a run at the final table, bowing out in sixth for $1,750 which he will add to his over $750,000 in lifetime earnings. He was preceded by fellow PocketFiver ‘FuzzyWigg’ who banked $1,000 for eighth place. Event #7 - $15,000 Mini Crazy 8 The Mini version of the Crazy 8 tournament seems to hit the spot with the players on 888poker as 1,317 entries paid the $8.80 entry fee to surpass the $15,000 guarantee by $384. The Mini Crazy 8 wrapped in just over ten hours with 160 players earning a return on their buy-in. ‘buldos’ emerging as the victor, joined the XL Champions club, and made the largest return on their $8.8, turning it into $2,769.80. The runner-up, ‘PhoenixRuffy’, did well for themselves also, earning eight cents shy of $2,000. Event #8 - $15,000 Late Crazy 8 As is usually the case with the late tournaments, they speed to a conclusion with the $44 Late Crazy 8 taking almost four hours less time to complete that of the $88 tournament. 271 entries, 71 of which were rebuys, left the tournament just shy of the guarantee. Altogether, there was a little over $3,000 in overlay to be picked up by the late registering players. ‘Kaktus26rus’ added yet another XL Championship title to his resume by winning the Late event for $2,925. In September 2017, he earned a win during XL Eclipse and now he’s an XL Inferno champion as well. Right behind him is current XL Inferno champion ‘psyhoagromor’ from the Ukraine who, just days ago, took home over $22,000 for a victory in Event #1. Had ‘psyhoagromor’ finished in first, he would have been the first to claim the $1,000 bonus 888poker is handing out for double event winners. Instead, the Ukranian would settle for an additional $2,175 and the notion that he’s continuing to have an excellent XL series.
