Patrik Antonius plays online at Full Tilt Poker.
Finnish poker pro Patrik Antonius is one of the most widely recognized players in poker. He started playing full time in 2002 and has banked almost $3 million in career tournament earnings. He is 1st on the Finland All Time Money List.
Patrik developed a taste for playing serious poker after he was introduced to the game online and won a satellite entry to a WSOP event. He moved to Las Vegas in 2002 and dedicated many hours to research and practice, steadily climbing the levels until he became a regular Big Game player at The Bellagio.
In 2005, Patrik cashed in two WPT tournaments. At the $9,750 Championship No-Limit Hold 'em event at the Bay 101 Shooting Stars of Poker in San Jose, he placed 15th for $40K. He then finished 12th in the $7,800 No-Limit Hold 'em Main Event, banking more than $34K. Patrick took 3rd place in the EPT €4K Main Event in Barcelona for $145K, before going on to win the EPT €4K Baden classic for $340K. He completed 2005 with his biggest tournament cash to date, placing 2nd in the WPT $15K Main Event at the Five Diamond Classic, for over $1 million.
Patrik’s outstanding record continued over the next three years, with a further nine WSOP cashes and four WPT cashes. He made the final table of the $10K Pot-Limit Omaha Championship event at the 2008 WSOP, finishing 7th for over $124K. Patrik is also a regular on televised shows “Poker After Dark” and “High Stakes Poker”. His aggressive playing style has earned him a seat amongst the “Circle of Outlaws” – a group of internationally successful players making their mark in the poker world.
