Tags: durrrr, durrrr challenge, high stakes poker, Patrik Antonius
Posted on 14 April 2009 by "T".
Patrik Antonius, the Finnish pokerpro, is doing great at the moment on Full Tilt's high stake tables. Only this year he has already won over $3,000,000 from playing poker online. How much money he has made from live cash games and tournaments we can only speculate in. Patrik Antonius was the most successful Finnish poker pro during 2008, and also got a sponsor contract with Full Tilt that y[...]   Read more » HighStakes: Antonius is the king of high stakes

Yeah, that's right. He is a very good player. I like watching high stakes but episodes with Antonius are the best. Love watching his game. Big Smile

Awesome player - I really hope he can jolly up this second group of players on HSP.

HSP, so far at least, hasn't been the same without Durrrr but Patrik has some great plays in him - I just hope we get to see some.

Yep. He plays in the newest episode. Problem is: The table is full of supernits. So it is unlikely to see such huge pots as in the weeks before.

Perfect assessment but Patrik has the skill and balls to run over this table. If he decides to go for it then things could get interesting, if not then it could turn into a total bore.

Jerzy, you can find the last episode online just do a quick search in google cause I cant post the link on here ( Fat Tony would have me shot Blink )

Also worth watching is the Aussie million cash game 2009.

part 1 - Patrik and Durrrr both running over the table playing a mix of PLO and NLHE

part 2 - Patrik and Durr heads up playing 1000/2000 blinds with over 2.5 mill on the table. A truly remarkable session by Durrr in a very strange way ( I won't ruin it by saying any more )

You'll find them both online too.

Yep almost never botherd watchng it all, but i gotta say the first session has got to be the best from all HS games, loved it so these guys have got a lot to live up to but what they lack in skill is made up in one way or anoither, next weeks episode looks to be a fun one.

over 3 milion of dollars in one year is a great booty. Patrick Antonious is simply one of the best players of the world at the moment. Very strong player

Seems to me he has another record: he won the biggest pot ever played in a cash game.....
Money goes to money: nothing more to say, amazing player

Is that an online pot? Televised I thought the Durrrr - Greenstein pot was the biggest.

In the HU match durrr vs Patrick in Aussie millions durrr was very unlucky... I don't know how he didn't lost his hole stack. Great folds!

I'd have gone broke at least twice - but Durrr does know Patrik's game very well, against an unknown he surely would have lost much more

Antonius still have to give proves that he deserves to be in the poker hall of fame. One thing is to win a lot of money, even if you keep lowprofile. I am sure there is a hand full of guys that already won and took profit from online poker without being known at all. Some of them even keep poker as the second job, and don't want to be known for that, and it will never be.

With so many top pro's it's hard to pick the best but I think Patrik is my favourite player. He has the perfect mindset for poker and are not affraid to gamble or trust his reads. Giving people the action they give him Thumbs Up
