Dan Hardy Eyes 888poker’s KO Games Main Event Overlay Edition’s Title

The 888poker KO Games Main Event Overlay Edition is one of the most exciting online poker events today. It has a $25 buy-in and a $200,000 guaranteed prize pool. Therefore, its title has an overlay.

888poker opted to increase the tournament’s value by offering a $109 bounty on Dan Hardy, a former fighter’s head. This will attract many players from different countries, each of them striving to beat Hardy.

The fighter lives in Nottingham and fighting enthusiasts call him “The Outlaw.” He took part in 35 professional fights, ten of which were in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) before ending his fighting career in 2012.

888poker announced its partnership with the Professional Fighters League (PFL) in November and some gaming experts believe that it resulted in Hardy’s recent addition to the Overlay Edition. He was a tough nut to crack during his fighting era as Carlos Condit was the only person who has ever knocked him out at UFC 120.

Hardy started competing in the tournament on December 6 at 7:30 p.m. GMT.  888poker promised to award any player who will defeat Hardy a $109 event ticket. One can use it to enter the $100,000 guaranteed Mystery Bounty tournament that will kick off on December 10.
