Day 4 of the UFC KO Poker Series. Here are the latest headlines…
- Fintan Hand smashes it. Takes lead
- Quiet day for Lex
- And we ask: Is compassion to blame for Spraggy’s KO drought?
The Team Pro KO KOntest
One man knew he had a big day in store, even before the data base had churned out the latest results.
And it was no wonder Fintan Hand was knocking on the door asking for results.
Smugness is a powerful thing.
We can report a new leader in the KO standings.
Fintan Hand is now in top spot after sending 24 players to the rail since yesterday. An act of ruthlessness that doubled his KO tally form the previous day.
He’s going to be unbearable.
The standings based on Total KOs:
Fintan Hand: 48 (+24)
Lex Veldhuis: 43 (-)
Ben Spragg: 24 (-)
With no confirmation yet of events played, we’re erring on the side of caution when accounting for the performances yesterday of Lex Veldhuis and Ben Spragg.
In Lex’s case, we’re assuming it was a rest day.
But with Spraggy we’re assuming he has lost his killer instinct.
It’s speculation, but we now wonder whether compassion has made him reluctant to deliver that fatal blow.
Having witnesses so many eliminations (many of which were his own), has he now found himself unable to capitalize on man’s inhumanity to man?
Or was he just rubbish yesterday?
Only he can say.
All we do know is that their scores didn’t change last night. And at least one player today will be reminding them of that.
Latest overall standings (with a UFC 241 package to the winner)
While the Team Pro with the most KOs will earn $1,000 to be played for among their Twitch communities, there are other even bigger prizes to be won during the UFC KO Poker Series.
As we’ve been reminding you all week, there are three UFC 241 packages to be won during the UFC KO Poker Series.
Each package is made up of flights, hotel and two tickets to Anaheim, California, for a UFC night to remember this August.
One of which will be going to the player with the most KOs. Who is that player?
How do you win one of the other two packages?
Score three KOs this week in UFC KO Series events and you’ll win entry into a special All-In Shootout next week. The winner will be on their way to Anaheim.
A third package will be given away in another All-In Shootout. This time for players who then go on to KO a further three opponents.
