The legend

Patrik Antonius Patrik is a former tennis player/coach and he’s a model. He began his poker career as a good tournament player with his European Poker Tour win and final tables at WSOP, WPT and EPT. He was also mentored by Jennifer Harman and Marcel Luske in the beginning of his career. He’s well-known as one of the best and fearless online rockets with most of his winnings at the highest cash games. He’s a heads-up specialist, is the first contestant in Durrrr’s Challenge and has already won millions of Dollars online. In November 2009, Patrik won the biggest pot in the online poker history against Isildur1, a cool $1,356,946. Besides online play, Patrik is a successful and fearless live cash game player, being a regular in the Big Game at the Bellagio. He made successful appearances in different seasons of GSN’s High Stakes Poker, including one of the show’s largest pots ever between him and Sammy Farha for a cool $ 998,800 in the pot from which Patrik won 3/4. Patrik is famous for his ice cold poker face and his prop bets at the table. I can say with proud that Mister Antonius is one of my favourite players as well for his play, making monster calls with small hands or making well-timed blufs, as for his beautiful wife.
