A total of 869 entries were compiled in the XL Eclipse #33 - $150,000 Mini Main Event. It took just over ten hours of play before the champion was crowned in TAPIS_TAPIR, who pocketed a cool $34,182 for his win.
TAPIS_TAPIR ran over the final table with his aggressive play and would end the tournament in a short heads-up match with Malta's CraiEvryTime. The two would put it all in the middle just hands into play, on a race, TAPIS_TAPIR would be the benefactor of that race as he completed a straight on the river, eliminating CraiEvryTime, who took home $24,687 for his efforts.
When late registration had ended, the tournament had a total of 117 players that would make the money and take home a min-cash of $380. It was just before the 22nd level of play that C_CANCEL would find himself heading out as the bubble boy.
The tournament had a flurry of eliminations happen shortly after the bubble popped, it would be just three hours later that the final table was set. SemogrotciV would be the first to leave the final table when his pair of tens fell to the ace-queen of Marflon, SemogrotciV hit a set of tens on the river but the same card gave Marflon the nut flush, sending SemogrotciV home first from the final table.
VinnyCout would fall out of the final table next, taking on a race with big slick against TAPIS_TAPIR's pair of sevens, but failed to connect with the board, being eliminated in eighth. TAPIS_TAPIR took down another player shortly after with his pocket fours against Vsekaknado and his ace-king. Vsekaknado failed to hit and TAPIS_TAPIR took down race and eliminated another opponent.
TAPIS_TAPIR again found himself having an opponent all in on a race, this time it was SalsaFiesta taking a shot at TAPIS_TAPIR with his jacks. He failed to take down the pot, being eliminated to TAPIS_TAPIR's ace-queen after a queen hit the board. The fifth-place finisher was Diffusar, after he put his remaining chips all in with king-five against TAPIS_TAPIR's ace-seven, failing to hit anything and being eliminated.
Marflon was yet another victim of TAPIS_TAPIR at the final table, losing with his ace-two against TAPIS_TAPIR's jack-queen, being eliminated in fourth place. AUTISPOSTI was in an optimal spot to double up after flopping top pair against his opponent, but TAPIS_TAPIR would end up finding runner-runner spades for a flush, eliminating AUTISPOSTI from the tournament in third.
The final table was fierce and competitive, but it was TAPIS_TAPIR's sheer desire to win every hand that was the difference maker. He went for the win at every moment, managing to eliminate almost every player at the final table and secure the win.
