After nearly nine hours of play, Mexico's "allinfds" outlasted a field of 249 entrants plus 72 rebuys to win the XL Inferno Event #17: $100,000 High Roller for $20,450.

The $320 tournament provided an extra $3,700 in added value to those that cashed thanks to the lofty $100,000 not being met with the buy-ins.

It took more than five hours for the money bubble to break. Brazil's "UchihaZuzou" got all the chips in the middle with pocket kings only to run into the pocket aces held by Austria's "franelf". The remaining 36 players were each guaranteed a $750 min-cash.

Among the players not to cash were 888poker Ambassadors Sofia "sofialovgren" Lovgren (92nd place) and Martin "MJacobson888" Jacobson (82nd place).

The two-hour final table began after "AnnaSanibel" jammed king-jack unsuccessfully into the pocket sevens held by Luis "paraFC" Faria to go out in 10th place for $1,600. "jansci89" entered the final table with the chip lead.

Despite entering the final table after winning a big hand, Faria was the first player to hit the rail in ninth place for $1,900. Faria first three-bet jammed sixes into the kings held by Ukraine's "SpielerKind". The remaining two big blinds left also went to the Ukrainian after Faria's jack-deuce suited couldn't get there against ace-king.

"SpielerKind" had the lead for a short while before "jancsi89" snagged it back with the help of eliminating "CraiEvryTime" (eighth - $2,500) and "GardinaD" (seventh - $3,500). Both of these players were registered at 888poker in Malta.

This didn't help "jancsi89" too much as he or she was the next player out. First "jansci89" gave the chip lead over to "LeetRunGoot" before the two got tangled up in a huge hand. "jansci" three-bet jammed more than 27 big blinds with tens and couldn't win a flip against the big slick held by "LeetRunGoot" to go out in sixth place for $4,500.

Russia's "Kaktus26rus" then eliminated Finland's "winlikefedor" in fifth place for $5,800 with ace-jack holding against queen-jack while "LeetRunGoot" kept piling on the chips and looked like he or she would run away with the tournament with nearly two-thirds of the chips in play with four players remaining.

"Kaktus26rus" then hit the rail in fourth place for $8,500 to set-up a marathon three way battle where all three players had the lead multiple times during the remainder of the match.

Eventually "alllinfds" was able to gain control and snag more chips than both his or her opponents combined. This player eliminated "LeetRunGoot" in third place for $11,300 with ace-three holding against nine-eight suited. After that heads-up play only lasted a minute with "allinfds" eliminating "SpielerKind" in second place for $15,000.
