After more than 13 hours of play, Event #7 - $160 XL Inferno Opening Event finally crowned a winner. "Xandee1991" from Brazil claimed the victory and the first prize of $53,014 after beating "kevlar1991" in the deciding heads-up.

The event, with a buy-in of $160, saw 1,447 players register and those players made 632 rebuys to get a total amount of 2,079 players. They created a total prize pool of $311,850 with 162 places paid. It took a while to get to the money but in the end, "DrMiKee" was the last player finishing empty-handed.

After making the money, it took a long time before the tournament got down to the last nine. After 11 hours, the remaining nine players made the final table and went on to play for a $53,014 first prize. For "janwest030" (ninth - $3,367), "mario73m" (eight - $6,081) and "wiissspppaa" (seventh - $9,199) it wasn't a big success on the final table, because they left quite early.

Not much later, Phil "PRoyal888“ Mighall finished in sixth place for $12,318 after losing all his chips with king-nine. He was followed to the rail by "lasochobi" (fifth - $15,436) and "bluecheek" (fourth - $21,205). From that moment on, "Xandee1991" dominated the tournament.

He took a commanding chip lead against his two opponents and won almost every pot he played. "kevlar1991" busted "MommyTosier" to get heads-up with the Brazilian. "kevlar1991" had to fight against the big-time chip leader, and the first time the money went in, the tournament ended. "Xandee1991" had {5-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} against {A-Hearts}{K-Clubs} and flopped a set of fives on a {5-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} flop. The turn {9-Clubs} sealed the deal and the {4-Spades} on the river couldn't change anything.

"kevlar1991" had to settle for second place, while "Xandee1991" celebrated his victory.
