There were a total of 552 entries compiled in XL Eclipse #10 - $100,000 Tune Up, with the tournament running just under 12 hours. When the last chance saloon had closed for business it was cuadrado12 taking down the tournament for a cool $22,170.
cuadrado12 bested a talented online player in NoMamesWeyyy after just around one level of play. NoMamesWeyyy found himself on the bad end of a cooler, running kings into aces, but taking home a respectable $16,246 for his efforts.
When late registration had ended, the tournament had a total of 72 players that would make the money and take home a min-cash of $387. It was just before the 20th level of play that chicco988 would find himself all in with ace-six against ZDamian's pair of ladies. The board did not run out in chicco988's favor as he was dubbed the bubble boy of the tournament, being eliminated in 73rd place.
The tournament picked up rather quickly after the bubble popped and it was just over three hours later when the final nine was set to play. _Antikk_ went into the final table as the short stack and failed to pick up any traction, headed out in ninth when he ran into aces.
P0KERPR02.0 moved all in from the button with snowmen and found a caller in NoMamesWeyyy from the big blind with ace-ten. An ace would land on the turn and P0KERPR02.0 would fail to catch up, being the second elimination from the final table.
uR4iseM3Up ran into cuadrado12 in a blind on blind position, failing to hit anything, being eliminated in seventh and putting cuadrado12 second in chips. The sixth-place finisher was Cavalier23C, finding himself all in with king-queen during a three-handed pot. cuadradro12 took down the whole pot with his pocket tens, eliminating Cavalier23C from the tournament and taking the chip lead.
Shortly after AkH0lic doubled up cuadrado12 just a couple of hands prior, he would be on the winning side of a hand against Korpisoturi2. AkH0lic called the all in of Korpisoturi2 and would be behind with his ace-queen to their ace-king. The flop came down as a reliever for AkH0lic as the queen was in the window. The board failed to hit Korpisoturi2 and they were eliminated in fifth place.
AUTISPOSTI moved all in from the small blind with the dead man's hand and shortly after figured out the hand got its name, being eliminated by NoMamesWeyyy's big slick in fourth place. AkH0lic fought it out for over a level before getting all in with king-queen against cuadrado12's ace-ten, drawing very slim after the ace high flop came down. The board would run out dry for cuadrado12, eliminating AkH0lic from the tournament in 3rd.
The final table was full of excitement, action and even some bad beats. The winner of the event was no rookie to the scene, having over 3 million in cashes and better known as machiavelli3. He used his experience and well-timed aggression to take down the final table, adding another great cash to his already immense resume.
