Monday marks the first day of results in the UFC KO Poker Series. So, what happened on Day 1?
- tomakgchm leads the KO competition, tied with Marusia1980 with 36.
- Lex Veldhuis leads Team Pros with 32 KOs
- Spraggy survives opening day one relatively unscathed
Three Twitch streaming PokerStars Ambassadors are competing in what we’re calling the UFC KO Series challenge.
It involves Fintan Hand, Lex Veldhsui and Ben Spragg and the player with the most KOs by the end of the series will win a genuine UFC replica belt and bragging rights (no cash value).
Perhaps of more interest is the $1,000 they’ll also collect for a freeroll among their Twitch community next week.
That’s all to come.
For now, the latest standings are below. We of course remain impartial for the duration of the competition.
Lex Veldhuis: 32
Fintan Hand: 18
Ben Spragg: 6
Fintan Hand: 6 per event
Lex Veldhuis: 4 per event
Ben Spragg: 2 per event
So something for all three to play for.
You might remember there’s a UFC 241 package to the winner of the overall KO contest. Each package is made up of flights, hotel and two tickets to Anaheim, California, for a night to remember this August.
Here’s how things stand.
Remember there are two other opportunities to win a UFC 241 package. And you don’t have to top the KO table to win.
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.

That makes another seven events, with $575,000 guaranteed. To say nothing of thousands of KOs.
So remember to keep on punching. And aim for Spraggy.
