Lightning Strikes for “LeoJoseCarne”

Event #67 $10,000 Lightning 6-Max drew 82 players, which surpassed the advertised guarantee by creating an $11,800 prize pool. It took seven hours and 19 minutes before Brazil’s “LeoJoseCarne” came out on top for $3,215.50.

Finishing second was Russia’s “toshapiter86,” who didn’t have to wait long for redemption as he would go on to win Event #69 $15,000 Deepstack Swordfish (640 players/$17,600 prize pool) four hours later for $3,324.64.

Event #67 Final Table Results

“LeoJoseCarne” Strikes Again

At the same time, he was winning the Lightning, “LeoJoseCarne” was busy topping a field of 608 players to also win Event #71 $15,000 Swordfish, that score good for $3,158.40.

This time to win, “LeoJoseCarne” defeated Belarus’ “LaGushatnik” in heads-up play. If that name sounds familiar, that’s because it wasn’t “LaGushatnik’s” first final table of the XL Inferno. On Day 1, he finished sixth in Event #2 $45,000 Sunday Breeze for $2,415, and the next day placed fifth in Event #22 $20,000 Monsoon for $1,892.
