Which KO is the Sickest?

June 25, 2019inPoker

The action continues…

‘Sick’ is an overused term in poker, but for our eight contenders it’s perfectly apt. To mark the UFC KO Poker Series, we’ve dug into the basement to find our most merciless KOs, and boy, some of these are painful.

Yesterday a three-way dance featuring aces, kings and queens became the first semi-finalist, but who will be joining them?

This is where you come in.

All you have to do is watch the two clips below and answer one question: which KO was the most brutal? Then simply cast your vote on our @PokerStars Twitter channel.

First up, a rare sighting of a Royal Flush from the 2016 PCA. At the turn of what had quickly become a monster pot, Paul Tedeschi was doing cartwheels inside with a set of queens, but the river had other ideas…

Also vying for a spot in the final four is the original ‘Death by Quads!’ hand, featuring Russian Pro Vitaly Lunkin. The occasion was EPT Barcelona; the year was 2013; the flop was ruthless.

Have your eyes recovered? If so, then it’s time to click some buttons and tell us which hand deserves to advance to the next stage.



Don’t forget that you can get involved with some sick knockout action yourself, as well as pick up one of the three UFC 241 packages up for grabs.
