Are you ready to compete for $8 million in guaranteed prizes? That’s $500,000 more in GTD prize money than was offered in last spring’s XL Inferno. Well, get ready, because from September 10-24 we’ll be hosting our highly-anticipated XL Eclipse online tournament series.

The full XL Eclipse schedule, which will be comprised of nearly 200 events over 15 days, will be released soon, but we can tell you that three events have been confirmed – $300,000 Opening Event, $50,000 Mini Opening Event, and $1,500,000 Main Event

Champion of Champions Returns

We can also confirm that after its success in the XL Inferno Series, our popular Champion of Champions Event is back!

Instead of competing on a Leaderboard, winners from each XL Eclipse event will automatically be registered to the Champion of Champions tournament, which will award the winner a once in a lifetime $13,000 package to the 2017 World Series of Poker Europe in Rozvadov.

The Champion of Champions Event will take place on September 26 at 18:00 GMT, and the top 40 players will walk away with a prize. Those who finish 10th-40th will receive a $55 tournament ticket, while those who finish 6th-9th and 4th-5th will receive a $215 and $600 tournament ticket, respectively.

The third-place finisher will win an 888Live Dublin Main Event package, the runner-up an 888Live London Festival Main Event package, and the eventual champion the aforementioned WSOPE Rozvadov experience.

Chip In to Charity with REG

We’re also proud to announce the return of three “Chip In” designated tournament. Three events will see all fees donated to a worthy cause via REG (Raising for Effecting Giving) without impacting the prize pool.

These events include an Eclipse ‘Chip In’ Super High Roller tournament with a $5,200 buy-in, in addition to $109 Mini and $55 Turbo versions.

For the XL Eclipse, all funds will be donated towards REG’s ‘AMF (Against Malaria Foundation)’.
