The finnish poker star started the year by losing $ 3,000,000 at the online tables, but the curve has since turned into $ 1,500,000 in plus. Among other things thanks to a German Limit expert.
With the recent stories from Asia's gaming mecca Macau, it is just before the $ 2,000 / $ 4,000 Fixed Limit Hold'Em may sound a bit boring.
But still quite entertaining when there is a long heads-up match between Patrik Antonius and the German 'IHateJuice' - the player who Phil Ivey doesn't even feel like he has an edge on.
Antonious and the anonymous German played a total of 1,257 hands of about four hours at the tables 'Duffney' and 'Patrik Getaway', which both belong to Full Tilt Poker's biggest Fixed Limit Hold'Em tables.
The first part of the match played out over 746 hands where Patrik Antonius could pull in $ 466,000 from the German's bankroll.
It would not be long before a rematch was set up. Here Antonious had some problems getting his game going, but nevertheless ended with a plus of $ 37,000 in 511 hands. So a total of $ 504,000, for the day.
And judging from the following chat, it's not the last meeting we have seen between the two highrollers.
Patrik Antonius: gg
Patrik Antonius: be back in couple hours
IHateJuice: play a lilttle longer.
Patrik Antonius: if u wanna play more
Patrik Antonius: gotta go now too hungry
