It took 888 player "trojanmouse" less than four hours of play to be crowned the Champion of Champions, as he overcame 17 other top contenders of the 2017 Super XL Series to win a World Series of Poker Main Event Package worth $12,500.

Despite a starting stack of more than 150 big blinds, play was fast paced and aggressive from the start, and before the end of the second level "trojanmouse" had already earned himself a double knockout, when his kings held up against the queens and ace-five of his opponents.

The final table was set in stone two hours into the tournament with Fabrizio "DrMiKee" Gonzalez holding the chiplead followed closely by Canada's "Mindcrushers". They were also the masterminds behind the two first knock-outs of the final table, as "Ti0373" and "Makuherra" was sent to the rail in 9th and 8th.

Shortly after "GangstaGo"fell in a classic coin flip against "trojanmouse", before Gonzalez turned the nutflush to send Latvian "sally_os" to the rail in one of the biggest pots of the final table.

"ScratchyR" was the next to go after running ace-king into the kings of "GoFighTer", leaving "trojanmouse" as the shortest stack with four players remaining. Within 20 minutes that picture was turned upside down, as "trojanmouse" doubled up no less than three times, before taking out Fabrizio "DrMiKee" Gonzalez in fourth by flopping a flush. "Mindcrushers" was moments later eliminated in third - good for a $3,000 WSOP Crazy-8's Package.

The heads up play was commenced with "trojanmouse" holding a 2:1 chiplead over his Belarusian opponent and the third place finisher of the 2017 Super XL Opening Event never let go of that lead.

In the final hand of the night "GoFighTer" moved in with the queen-jack of diamonds, but despite picking up outs for a straight flush on the turn, it was not to be. Instead, his opponent's king-ten became two pairs as the river paired the board, and that was enough to secure the victory and the World Series of Poker Main Event Package for "trojanmouse".

And just like that, the Champion of Champions Event was over. Belarusian "GoFighTer" moved all-in from the button with {Q-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds} and was called by "trojanmouse" holding {K-Clubs}{10-Clubs} in the big blind.

"Trojanmouse" got the best of it on the {10-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{6-Hearts} flop, but the turn {9-Diamonds} gave his opponent a massive 20 outs to improve to the best hand. The river {3-Clubs} wouldn't do it, however, and thus "trojanmouse" becomes the Super XL Champion of Champions 2017.
