The final day of the UFC KO Poker Series played out yesterday. We won’t know the winner of the Main Event, or the KO contest itself until tomorrow, but here are the headlines this morning:
- Lex Veldhuis tops Team Pro KO competition after heroic last day
- Fintan Hand falls short by 8 KOs
- Spraggy collects certificate of participation
- They face off on Wednesday for the belt
The Team Pro KO KOntest
It’s all over, at least it is for the Team Pro KO Challenge. At least the KO part.
While the UFC KO Poker Series has one more day to run (the conclusion of the two-day Main Event), it was Lex Veldhuis who topped the tables in the three-way KO competition after scoring 32 KOs on final day.
He will now enter the special three handed Team Pro Spin & Go this Wednesday with the biggest stack.
In second place, and with the second biggest stack, is Fintan Hand.
Meanwhile Spraggy crossed the line in third place. That was despite scoring 25 KOs on the final day. It makes you wonder why he didn’t do that every day.
At stake on Wednesday will be a replica UFC belt, bragging rights (no cash value), and most importantly, $1,000. That will go directly into a freeroll for the winner’s Twitch community.
The final standings based on Total KOs:
Lex Veldhuis: 87 (+32)
Fintan Hand: 79 (+6)
Ben Spragg: 64 (+25)
Latest overall standings (with a UFC 241 package to the winner)
There are of course other even bigger prizes to be won during the UFC KO Poker Series.
As we’ve been reminding you, 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?
Well here at the current standings. There is still one day of the Main Event remaining, which could yet change things at the top.
Don’t forget the other two packages to be won.
Anyone who scored three KOs during the UFC KO Series earns entry into a special All-In Shootout later this 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 went on to KO a further three opponents.
We’ll have details of that later this week.
