888poker XL Spring Series Marches Forwards; Crowns Freezeout Champions

May 25, 2022
888poker XL Spring Series

Another three 888poker players became poker champions on May 24 in the $1.5 million guaranteed XL Spring Series. All three events were freezeouts, a format that is something of a rarity in the modern online poker world. All three events were well attended, going to show the freezeout format is still popular with tournament grinders.

Romania Claims an XL Spring Series Title

The fifth numbered event of the XL Spring Series was a $215 buy-in tournament that saw 170 entrants create a $34,000 prize pool that the top 30 finishers shared.

$574 was the least any of the nine finalists could walk away with, and was the sum Brazilian Vinicius "viinig" Camargo Goncalves banked after his untimely demise in ninth place. New Zealand's "CrackFiend15" busted in eighth and won the tournament's last three-figure sum, namely $782.

Each of the surviving players were now guaranteed to take home four-figure prizes ranging between $1,071 and $7,622. British duo "33betwizkid" and Michael "HyperX." Skeldon crashed out, leaving the tournament short-handed.

Malta's "Its0kay," winner of an XL Spring Series event a couple of days ago, saw their latest deep run end in fifth place, a finish worth $2,026. Then came the exits of "henninh0" and "Emil8915," which left "vigge1111" of Sweden heads-up against Romania's "cretzzuu93." It was the Romanian who came out on top and who banked $7,622 in prize money, resigning their Swedish opponent to a $5,440 consolation prize.

leon_dies10 Wins Mini Freezeout

The $55 buy-in $10,000 guaranteed Mini Freezeout proved popular with 888poker's players, with 307 of them creating a guarantee-busting $15,350 prize pool. Argentinian "leon_dies10" reeled in the lion's share of the prize pool, $2,961 to be exact, after they came out on top from a fiercely-fought final table.

In addition to the champion, the top four finishers saw their $55 investment swell to more than a thousand dollars. Fourth-place finisher and 888poker regular "algsxr" of Canada walked away with $1,129 while "55luckbox777" of Mexico saw $1,559 head to their account after falling in third.

The runner-up, "fosterkane," received a bankroll-boosting $2,142 for their efforts.

Night Owls Enjoy The Late Freezeout

Each XL Spring Series tournament has a late edition that shuffles up and deals at 9:00 p.m. BST, giving 888poker's customers the chance to save their session. "pivnoypuzec" did exactly that when they triumphed over 139 opponents in the $10,000 Late Freezeout event, turning their $109 into $3,255 from their home in Montenegro.

Like the Mini Freezeout, the top four finishers won four-figure sums. British pro Ben "xLIVEPROx" Warrington was the first of this quartet to win more than a grand; $1,202 was paid to him. "DANNY442" scooped the $1,680 third-place prize, while Brazilian grinder "TeTeuEx" walked away with $2,331 after falling at the final hurdle.
