Described as "morbidly obese", poker pro Paul Kitsos died of a heart attack while in flight from JFK Airport bound for the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas Monday afternoon.

Paul "Smalls" Kitsos was 55 and owned a women's apparel company, according to the paper. After pressing the panic button on his flight to San Francisco, he began "sweating profusely and breathing heavily," the New York Post reports.

The pilot returned to JFK where it took four police officers to remove Kitsos from the plane.

Kitsos weighed more than 350 pounds.
