The XL Inferno is returning to 888poker May 16-26 and will feature 34 tournaments with more than $1.4 million in guarantees up for grabs. With buy-ins ranging from $5.50 up to $320, there’s something for everyone.

The XL Inferno will culminate with the $250 buy-in Event #32: $500,000 Main Event on May 25 at 5 p.m. GMT. Players will start with 50,000 in chips and play 20-minute levels, making it a must-play tournament for any online poker aficionado.

Satellites for that event and more start at just 1¢.

If you were to fire a bullet in each of the 34 XL Inferno tournaments on 888poker, it’d cost $2,208.30 in buy-ins. That’s a lot, and obviously, not everyone can do it. That said, we’ve made it so you can play a full slate of XL Inferno events for under $300!

Don’t believe us?

It’s true, and we’re happy to explain how you can get the most bang for your buck.

The first tournament you’ll want to eye up is the $16.50 buy-in Event #2: $20,000 Mini Opening Event on Thursday, May 16 at 18:00 GMT. In the same tournament during the XL Blizzard, Russia’s “plomoor” was able to top a 1,705-entry field to turn his $16.50 buy-in into a $16,458 payday!

The following day on Friday, May 17 at 18:00 GMT the $22 buy-in Event #5: $20,000 Mini PKO will take place with the $8.80 buy-in Event #8: $10,000 Mini 8-Max beginning the following day at the same time.

So, thus far that’s three great events for just $47.30.

It doesn’t stop there.

On Sunday, May 19, you can comfortably play both the $16.50 buy-in Event #11: $50,000 Mini Tune-Up and $5.50 buy-in Event #12: $10,000 Micro Tune-Up, which will take place at 18:00 and 18:30 GMT respectively.

Likewise, for a $22 investment you can fire two more tournaments on Monday, May 20 in the $5.50 buy-in Event #15: $10,000 Mini R&A at 18:00 and the $16.50 buy-in Event #16: $15,000 Later R&A an hour after that. That brings the total investment through five days up to $91.30.

After Tuesday’s high roller day, we return to affordable offerings with the $16.50 buy-in Event #21: $20,000 Mini PKO on Wednesday, May 22 at 18:00 GMT. Toss in the $22 buy-in Event #24: $20,000 Mini PKO 8-Max on Thursday as well as the $16.50 buy-in Event #27: $20,000 Mini DeepStack on Friday and total costs jump to a reasonable $146.30.

On the final two days, you can play the $16.50 buy-in Event #30: $20,000 Mini 6-Max on Saturday, May 25 and $5.50 buy-in Event #34: $15,000 Micro Main Event on Sunday, May 26 to bring it all up to just $168.30. That’s barely half of your $300 bankroll.

So, what should you do with the rest? We recommend taking a shot in tournaments like the $55 buy-in Event #18: $30,000 Mini High Roller, the $33 buy-in Event #28: $10,000 Late DeepStack, or the $33 buy-in Event #33: $50,000 Mini Main.

Heck, you could add all three of those tournaments to your schedule, and your total investment would be $289.30.

They Did It and So Can You!

XL Blizzard 2019

There’s a lot of value to be had in the low to mid-stake buy-ins during our XL series. This year’s XL Blizzard was evidence of that.

For instance, the $8.80 buy-in Event #7: $10,000 Mini Crazy 8 attracted 1,562 entries and saw the UK’s “flipsticks” win $2,317.48. Similarly, the $16.50 buy-in Event #11: $50,000 Mini Tune-Up had 3,933 entries which allowed Romania’s “eduardokhaan” to turn his investment into a title and $8,792 in prize money.

The XL Blizzard also closed out strong as 3,523 entrants packed the $5.50 buy-in Event #34: $15,000 Micro Main Event. Ukraine’s “ExValue1” finished on top and turned his tiny buy-in into a juicy $2,461.15 payday.

We expect the XL Inferno to be even bigger and better than the XL Blizzard, so don’t miss your chance to turn a small buy-in into a big payday!
