PANIC.PLAYER WINS UFC KO SUNDAY MILLION ($98K)

The UFC KO Poker Series kicked off yesterday, but the largest event of the day wouldn’t finish until the following morning.

Greece’s “PANIC.PLAYER” came out on top after one of the longest Sunday Millions in recent memory (13,858 entries, 15 hours and 42 minutes of action). For the win, PANIC.PLAYER won $73,579 plus $24,509 in bounties, following a heads-up deal with “1pante” who locked up $73,579 plus $11,493.

This amazing victory now marks PANIC.PLAYER’s largest career cash to date, the previous one being from a SCOOP win in a $27 event for $49K back in 2015. It’s also worth noting that PANIC.PLAYER came close to winning two UFC KO Poker Series events on the opening day, as they also finished sixth in event 05 ($215 NLHE) for $5,019.


ANDRAS “probirs” NEMETH WINS UFC KO HIGH ROLLER

The second biggest winner of Day 1 of the UFC KO series was a very familiar face: Hungary’s Andras “probirs” Nemeth.

Nemeth now has just under $12.8M in online earnings.

Outside of the UFC KO Poker Series, the High Roller Club was where the big money was at.
