[caption width="640"] Knockdown, drag-out action over at 888poker during XL Eclipse on Friday.[/caption] There were bounty hunters abound during the 888poker XL Eclipse schedule on Friday. For the first time since the start of the series, players had an extra incentive to go for the kill in the form of bounty tournaments. In fact, as not to overwork players before a massive online poker weekend, there were only eleven tournaments on tap, three of which were of the popular bounty format. Current Worldwide #3-ranked player, 'tutten7', was back in action poised for his second title of the XL Eclipse series in Event #73 ($30,000 Knockout NLHE) the largest tournament on Friday's schedule. The Swedish phenom had a roughly 2:1 chip lead in the middle of heads-up play but was upended late by Lithuanian's 'Apsauginis' who, in a matter of hands, took the lead and closed out the tournament for the top prize of the day, $6135 (+$328 in bounties). As the runner-up, 'tutten7' banked $4,500 (+$328 in bounties) which should push his lifetime online total to over $7.5 million. Event #75 ($35 $25,000 Challenge NLHE) was the best bang-for-your-buck tournament of the day with its modest buy-in and aggressive guarantee. It attracted the most runners of any tournament on the schedule with 824 entries, all of which were faded by Brazil's 'Naollmin' who turned his $35 into $4,772,60 with his victory. PocketFives members were well represented in the winner's circle on this day capturing no fewer than four titles. Former top-ten ranked online player 'overthetop43' chopped up the first event of the day, Event #67 ($109 $15,000 Lightning 6-Max NLHE), capturing the title but taking a little less, $4051.13, than 'ihavenoboss', who came in 2nd. Gytis 'peledazmogis' Lazauninkas scored victory in Event #68 ($55 $15,000 Breeze NLHE) as did Ukraine's 'Bestolo4' in Event #69 ($30 $15,000 Deepstack NLHE). In the theme of the day, it was Finland's 'gifuhorna' who racked up the bounties and the win in Event #75 ($10,000 Turbo Knockout NLHE) adding $2,311.25 (+ $250 in bounties) to his already over $3 million in lifetime cashes.

It was back to work on Monday for online grinders of 888poker’s winter tournament series, XL Blizzard. The schedule backed off just a bit from the massive Sunday lineup just one day prior and opted to simply offer a pair of tournaments. One for those on a budget who wanted to get in on the action and a larger Rebuy & Add-On event that drew plenty of mid-stakes grinders eager to accumulate leaderboard points and four-figure scores. Event #14 - $40,000 R&A Event The larger of the two tournaments of the day saw 414 players buy-in for $55 with 308 rebuys and 252 add-ons. The totality generated a $48,700 prize pool, exceeding the guarantee by $8,700 and promising eight of the nine final table players a four-figure payout. PocketFivers dominated the final table with the eventual winner being ‘yarik1903’, currently the #151-ranked player in the world. Having just recently surpassed $2 million in lifetime tournament scores, the Ukranian started his journey to $3 million by adding the first place prize of $9345.53, the largest XL Blizzard payout of the day. ‘yarik1903’ battled against Germany’s ‘hale_bop123’ , who finished as the runner-up cashing for $6,939.75. ‘hale_bop123’ may have been disappointed by not winning but he’s likely ecstatic by the score. The second place prize money is roughly $500 shy of his career high cash and his first four-figure cash since July 2017. Sweden's ‘creutz93’ laddered and finished in fourth place for $3,896. The Swede is ranked #18 in his extremely competitive home country and is no stranger to final tables and big scores as this marks the eighth time he’s cashed for four-figures or more in 2018. Making an appearance in his third final table of the series was Swedish phenom ‘tutten7’ (aka ‘lena900’, the #3-ranked player in the world). ‘tutten7’ just came off a day where he earned a total of over $50,000 in XL Blizzard events #10 & #12. On Monday, he continued his series heater and finished in seventh place for an additional $2,069.75. The combination of his scores has moved him into the top 10 of the XL Blizzard Leaderboard. Event #15 - $10,000 Mini R&A Players came out in force to support the lowest buy-in tournament of the entire XL Blizzard series as 1,477 runners ponied up the $5 buy-in. With the low buy-in, players decided to rebuy early and often, rebuying 1638 times with 829 add-ons. With so much action, this prize pool exceeded the guarantee as well, ending up at $17,945.20. Russia’s ‘DeltaSpider’ and PocketFiver Igor ‘Agelesss1’ Selega from Ukraine brokered a two-way deal. ’DeltaSpider’ eventually finished in first for $2,618.41 while Selega settled for runner-up. Despite finishing in second, he cashed out for slightly more money at $2,676.23, making it the largest cash of his career to date. ‘luckypanch75’ finished in fourth place for $1,220.27, adding to his previous results and pushing him into second place on the XL Blizzard Leaderboard. He’s currently sitting right behind ‘Ao1ing’ who cashed yet again in Event #15, finishing in 15th for $122.02. While Event #15 was the lowest buy-in of the tournament, Tuesday is for the high-rollers and includes the gigantic $2,100 $250,000 guarantee High Roller tournament.
