“PuntSonPunt” Tops Tough Final Table to Win Crocodile

In Event #160 $20,000 Crocodile, a tournament that attracted 175 players and surpassed the advertised guarantee by creating a $26,250 prize pool, it took “PuntSonPunt” seven hours and 46 minutes to win the title and $5,643.75 first-place prize.

He beat “Juanfran1973” in heads-up play, which meant the man from the UK had to settle for his second runner-up finish of the XL Inferno. He previously placed second in Event #50 $75,000 6-Max for $11,100.

Also at the final table was third-place finisher Ivan “ivanascasubi” Vilchez, who notched his sixth cash and best finish of the XL Inferno Championships. In addition, “neverfoldQ5” finished in seventh place. If that name sounds familiar, maybe it’s because you recognize it from him winning the August 2015 888poker Mega Deep outright for $24,000.
