Patrik Antonius Takes on kingsofcards at Nosebleeds

Friday, 23 October 2009

The action on Full Tilt is still very slow, even compared to the past summer – let alone the days of Guy LaLiberte dropping millions. Most of the recent action has been at $200/$400 or $300/$600 but the dust was blown off the $500/$1,000 Hold ‘em tables as Patrik Antonius and kingsofcards took to the felt.

Despite still dealing in six-figure pots, the gamble was still diminished as the biggest pot came when kingsofcards was only 80BB deep – OK, that’s still $80,000 but it’s pocket change at these stakes.

Antonius called a pre-flop raise with T9o then check-raised a $4,000 flop bet to $16k on a board of 5c-3c-9d. He was faced with a shove and called with top pair, seeing himself a marginal underdog against Ac-Jc.

The Jd on the turn swung the hand to a near lock, with a rivered 3c rubbing salt in the wound and shipping the $163,000 pot to kingsofcards.
