After that, familiar faces like Scott "AggroSantos" Margereson, Sergio "zcedrick" Aido and Kenny "SpaceyFCB" Hallaert busted.

After that, the tournament saw "Sjapster" (sixth - $62,480) and "KURDEdersim" (fifth - $78,100) leave before play slowed down with four players left.

After a long period with four players, the tournament went down to three players. "poirierfrncs" busted in fourth place for $110,902 after losing his chips with {3-Clubs}{3-Hearts} against the pocket kings of "CllsDntMttr". Just a few minutes later, "CllsDntMttr" also busted "purplegerbil" in third place for $148,390.

888poker XL Eclipse Day 10: 'Chip-In' Tournaments Raise $40,000 for REG

BrettC

Day 10 of the 888poker XL Eclipse Series was a special one. The poker room hosted three 'Chip-In' tournaments which donated all fees to Raising for Effective Giving (REG). In all, those three tournaments raised nearly $40,000 toward REG’s Against Malaria Foundation. The tournaments involved were Super High Roller tournament with a $5,200 buy-in, as well as $215 Mini and $55 Turbo versions.

Most of the attention went to the XL Eclipse #126 - $5,200 XL Eclipse Super High Roller Chip In, where the high rollers competed for a huge prize pool. Let's take a look at who took the most money and the results in other tournaments.

XL Eclipse #126 - $5,200 XL Eclipse Super High Roller Chip-In

Buy-inDatePlayersPrize pool
$5,200September 19124$620,000

Players started the tournament with 20,000 chips and had the option to do a rebuy in the case of losing all their chips. At the end of the registration period, there were 87 players and 37 rebuys to create a total prize pool of $620,000 which was divided by the last 12 players.

Long before the money was reached players like Artem "veeea" Vezhenkov, Robin "Inho" Ytalo, Chris "888Moorman" Moorman, Niklas "tutten7" Astedt and Sofia "sofialovgren" Lovgren were all busted from the tournament.

Before the bubble came in sight, the tournament lost Simon "Isildur1337x" Mattson, "AriGold17" and "MindSyntax". On the bubble, "d1sclosure" lost with his ace-jack against pocket tens and he was the last player to leave the tournament empty-handed.

The final table was reached after a short while, with the elimination of Johan5390 in ninth place. In quick succession, Mike "SirWatts" Watson (eigth, $21,700), Mark "AceSpade11" Radoja (seventh, $26,350) and "Kannwas" (sixth, $32,5500) busted. From that moment, it was a long grind with the final five players. In the end, "Zebest7r" was sent to the rail after losing with jack-ten against ace-jack.

With four players remaining, Thomas "WushuTM" Muhlocker became the shortest stack. After a while he was all in with jack-eight against queen-nine and lost the hand. Muhlocker finished in fourth place for $58,900. Just a few minutes after that, Alexandr "Biack88" Trofimov went out in third place for $86,800, losing a coin flip with pocket fives against the ace-ten of chip leader Aleksandr "Evnomiya" Mordvinov.

Mordvinov started the heads up with a big chip leader, but "spider4444" fought back in no-time. When he got back to even stacks, the two got in it with top pair. "spider4444" held the better kicker and that sealed the deal. He won the tournament for $170,500 while the Russian had to settle for second place and $114,700.

888poker XL Eclipse Day 9: 'Chip In' Events to Raise Money for REG

BrettC

On Monday, 13 new tournaments took place in the XL Eclipse Series. It wasn't a day with huge prizes being collected, as "bezfrke" was the biggest winner after shipping the $20,000 Crocodile for $6,450. Still, there were 13 winners who all collected some nice money and were crowned 888poker XL Eclipse Series champions.

Most attention will be on Tuesday night's events on the XL Eclipse Series schedule. 888poker is cooperating with REG (Raising for Effecting Giving) for three events that will collect money for charity:

  • 18:00 – SHR (Super High-Roller) Chip-In - $5,200 buy-in
  • 18:00 – Mini Chip-In - $215 buy-in
  • 20:00 – Turbo Chip-In - $55 buy-in

Chip in for AMF (Against Malaria Foundation)

888poker is hosting three exclusive tournaments where ALL fees will be donated to a worthy cause without impacting the prize pool. Buy-ins will, as usual, make up the guaranteed amount - so 888 will chip in, whilst you cash out!

REG will be 888poker’s partner throughout this project and will help ensure that all funds will be donated towards REG’s Against Malaria Foundation. This special event will include an Eclipse 'Chip in' Super High Roller tournament with a $5,200 buy-in, in addition to $215 Mini and $55 Turbo versions.

During the XL Inferno Series earlier this year, 888poker raised more than $50,000 to donate to REG. Be sure to participate in these great tournaments on Tuesday!

Now, onto Monday's results.
