Anteen, from Sweden, the first Two-Time Winner of the XL Inferno Championships.

It’s only Day 3 of the XL Inferno Championships and already there is one name that’s been on the headlines not once but twice! Anton “anteen” Bertilsson, hailing from Sweden, is XL Inferno’s first two-time Winner!

His first win came from game #10 $200,000 Whale on the opening day of the Tournament, where he came out on top of 334 players with a healthy winning of $38,700, 3rd highest Prize of the day.

He brought his A-game once again on Day 3 as he took to the highlight event of the day, #36 $500,000 High Roller. After competing for 11 hours, he eventually bested 221 players, including fellow Swede Daniel “R1valdo10” Erlandsson, to take home a sweet $116,974.

Also at the table were Kannwas and R1valdo10 who came in 2nd and 3rd places respectively. Kannwas cashed for an even $85,800 and R1valdo10 walked away with a cool $64,636.

Another exciting game that saw the winner walk away with the highest prize outside of the final table was Event #37 $150,000 Mini High Roller. The winner, Profided48 edged out in front of the other players, cashing out $44,273. 1st and 2nd runner ups were Ferdilicious and Nelisschuif, each pocketing $31,798 and $23,849 respectively.

Day 3 proved to be just as exciting as the 1st 2 days of the Championship, which resulted with some of the biggest winners of the Tournament so far.
