Pereleman Wins XL Winter Series Event

It was an action-packed weekend of poker action, with one of the standout events that was taking place being the $50,000 Tune Up For $9,050. The event attracted some of the biggest names in online poker, before it was eventually won by Pereleman. He was named as the final man standing from a huge field of quality players, which consisted of 1,085 opponents.

However, nothing looked to faze the Bulgarian throughout the event, as he maintained his composure to rise from the middle of the field to run out as the comfortable winner in the event. Once he got out in front, it never looked likely that he was going surrender the lead, and a deal was made in the closing stages between himself and the runner-up in the competition.

Pereleman Holds Off Competition

There was no doubting who the winner of the event was after Pereleman got his nose in front. As soon as he hit the front, it never looked likely that he was going to get caught. The deal was struck with Thundy100, as the Belarusian was able to claim the returns of $9,500 after the deal was agreed. The Russian player that finished in second would have still been pleased with his returns, as he claimed $6,500.

Meanwhile, FlushJeZus finished the competition a place further back, as they couldn’t get any closer than third in the event. But, they were still able to leave the event with $5,289 in returns. Moldavian player Iaric was next on the leaderboard, as they walked away with just under $4,000 in prize money. That would have highlighted an excellent performance by the player. The top four players in the event never looked in question, as the only question that lingered around them were the order that they were going to finish in.

Remainder Of Official Results

There were two Brazilian players that finished in the top nine in the official results, with the highest placed of those being BellaFicha. The Brazilian finished in fifth place on the leaderboard and claimed $2,794 in returns from the 888Poker Winter Series event. British player Charlie Combes was next on the leaderboard, as the Brit was sandwiched in between the two Brazilians on the leaderboard. Combes claimed $2,251 in returns.

Fellow Brazilian CaioCapT was the next star on the leaderboard in sixth spot, and claimed $1,709 in returns. The final player in the top nine to claim over $1,000 from the event was British player IT5PAYDAY. They finished in eighth spot overall, but would have still been pleased with the $1,199 in prize money for that finish.

The final player on the leaderboard was the only Russian to finish in the top nine, with X90X60X90X claiming that final spot. That result was enough to see the Russian claim $694, which would have still been seen as a positive. However, there’s no question that the day belonged to Pereleman.
