Patrik Antonius wins $1.1m since Friday at Full Tilt Poker

Wednesday, 29 September 2010

Patrik Antonius didn’t last long in the solitary World Series of Poker Europe event that he played; the Finnish pro survived Day 1b but lasted just one blind level on Day 2 before seeing his £10,350 swirling down the drain. He wasted no time making up for it, though.

Antonius was a force in the $300/$600 PLO game that ran this weekend over Full Tilt Poker – unusually, it was a full ring match as opposed to the usual 6-max or heads-up games played there but that didn’t affect Antonius’s winrate except to skyrocket it. In just over 5,000 hands he managed to earn over $1.1m in the nosebleed games.

Another big winner for the weekend was Gus Hansen, whose poker karma is at an all-time high right now as his $565,000 weekend at Full Tilt Poker came shortly before he beat James “Mr_BigQueso” Collopy heads-up for his first World Series of Poker bracelet and £290,000 in the Heads Up High Roller event of the World Series of Poker Europe.

It wasn’t all good news for Scandinavian poker, though – Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies lost almost a million dollars in the same time frame that Antonius won his seven figures, meaning that Finland finished the weekend essentially even.
