The biggest prize of the day came in Event #47: $50,000 8-Max, a tournament that drew 607 entries (325 rebuys) and created a prize pool of $93,200 prize pool). After nearly 12 hours of play, the Netherlands’ “RendOss” came out on top to win $17,428.40.

Others to finish in the top 80 and walk away with some cash were Niklas “tutten7” Astedt (58th - $307.56), Nicolas “PKaiser” Fierro (23rd - $745.60), and “imabarista” (10th - $1,165).

Back in December, “RendOss” topped a field of 161 entries to win the $15,000 Crocodile for $5,450. Over the years, he’s also won the Lightning 6-Max and Early Monsoon on 888poker.

Stephen “Sizzlinbetta” Reynolds Turns $12 Into Four-Figure Score

Event #48: $10,000 Mini 8-Max cost just $12 to enter, and 1,143 entries (620 rebuys) saw the GTD nearly double with a $19,216.70 prize pool. Among the 144 players to get a piece of it were “Rianic” (50th - $55.72), “boquillas” (21st - $96.08), and “Meirutis1994” (10th - $172.95).

After 9 hours and 37 minutes, it was Stephen “Sizzlinbetta” Reynolds playing from Mexico who turned his modest buy-in into a $3,503.20 payday, not to mention claiming a coveted XL Eclipse title.

A little over a week ago, Reynolds won the e$750 GTD Turbo R&A for $211, the same tournament he finished runner-up in the day before. In late August, he also won the $500 Super Turbo Blowfish for $131.23. Obviously Reynolds is no stranger to winning.
