The somewhat inexplicable link between poker and Mixed Martial Arts grew a little bit stronger recently thanks to UFC welterweight, Martin Kampmann.
The Danish fighter, who now lives and trains in the US, is part of Ultimate Poker's team of representatives and earlier this week he managed to fend off some established players in Reno. Thanks to the tutelage of Jason Somerville, Martin breezed through the early rounds of the inaugural #RunItUp event (Somerville's YouTube training brand) and even surpassed his mentor on the way to victory. Much like his country's most famous grinder, Gus Hansen, Kampmann's style is somewhat unorthodox and aggressive but it proved to be a deadly combination as he eventually scooped the $52,000 top prize. With the WSOP just around the corner and no UFC fights scheduled, it's likely we'll see Kampmann become one of the many sports stars indulging their competitive sides in Las Vegas this summer.
The Winter Poker Championship Seefeld 2017 is set to run from February 16 to February 26 and online poker players are being offered the chance to win a prize package into the Austrian tournament series’ main event for as little as $3.30.
Christmas is just around the corner and Juicy Stakes and Intertops Poker are getting into the holiday spirit by offering online poker players the chance to double one re-load deposit up to $100.

Four online poker players that won prize packages into the $2,400 main event of the PPC Aruba World Championship 2016 courtesy of Intertops Poker and Juicy Stakes are on their way to the Caribbean this weekend and will be joined by vlogger ‘TheTrooper97’.
