Thus far, 29 seats have been awarded for that event. For a recap of those who won on Day 1, which saw 16 tournaments finish and awarded $1,177,180.75 in prize money, click here.

The biggest tournament on Day 2 in terms of prize pool was Event #20 $20,000 Crocodile. The $160 buy-in event attracted 309 players and created a $46,350 prize pool. That was distributed to the top 45 players including “InJeBakkes” (13th - $579.37), Nicolas “PKaiser” Fierro (27th - $347.62), and “HappyHour4U” (43rd - $278.10).

The final table was filled with some familiar faces. The most notable was the UK’s “kevlar1991,” who finished in third place for $5,098.50 just one day after finishing as runner up in the XL Inferno Opening Event for $38,981.25.

Another notable at the final table as fourth-place finisher “CountSmegma.” The day before, the man from Denmark finished fifth in Event #11 $100,000 Sunday Challenge
