KT Park New York online grinder KT Park has overcome a star-studded field of 456 players, including some of the best mixed game players in the world to win what’s become affectionately known as “The Mini PPC”, the $2,500 Nine-Game mix for a career-best $219,799 and his first World Series of Poker bracelet.
