After more than 10 hours of play, Jonathan "chut_up" Van Fleet won the $2,100 Event #28: $350,000 Super XL - High Roller for $87,290. The event attracted 203 players for a total prize pool of $406,000.

Some of the best online poker tournament players in the poker world registered to the event. Well-known pros like Ole "olekonjole" Schemion, Nicolas "PKaiser" Fierro and Christopher "NigDawg" Brammer had a go at the most expensive tournament of the Super XL Series, however, was unable to make a deep run.

The eventual final table was also by no means lacking household names. The No. 1 ranked online tournament player in the world, Niklas "tutten7" Astedt, was long in contention for the title, but would eventually succumb to an eighth-place finish outlasting only Britain's "LAP1215" (ninth - $8,120) on the final table.

Costa Rican player "JAB888" was next to bust in seventh place for $16,240 before former EPT winner Frederik "Poelsetyv" Jensen followed suit in sixth place good for $20,300.

Shortly after Marton "WorldIsOurs" Czuczor (fifth - $24,360) fell to the ace-jack of Fabrizio "DrMiKee" Gonzalez before Romanian "glezna23" was sent to the rail in a coin flip against Van Fleet.

Even though Gonzalez knocked out Bernardo "bsdias" Dias in third place for $47,705, Van Fleet still held the chip lead as the players started heads-up play. In the very first hand, Gonzalez managed to level the playing field by doubling up with ace-seven against the pair of threes of Van Fleet, but Van Fleet took back the lead immediately and never looked back.

In the final hand, the king-seven of Van Fleet held up against the queen-jack of his opponent, and king high was enough to secure the victory and the $87,290 on top, while Gonzalez walked away with the runner-up prize of $62,930.
