Finnish Poker Pro Bags $1.1 Million This Week Online

March 23, 2013

Patrik Antonius, the second most profitable high-stakes online poker player in history, is now up more than $15 million lifetime on Full Tilt Poker. He is back to his familiar soul-crushing strategies on the FTP software.

The Finnish pro took charge of the virtual arena from last Friday and won over $1.1 million while playing under the screen name “FinddaGrind”. This amount is the largest won in a week in the web poker world. According to the HighstakesDB Full Tilt pre-2012 data, Antonius was up approximately $13.5 million. This amount combined with his other winnings of 2013 puts him up about $15 million on Full Tilt Poker lifetime.

The online platform is not the only space Antonius dominates. He has come to be highly regarded for his brazen battle techniques in the live cash game arena, where he has earned a name for being one of the best and most profitable players of all time. The pro’s career is also marked by stunning tournament wins; the total wins he has amassed in tournaments throughout his career amount to nearly $5.6 million.

Just recently, in the 2013 Aussie Millions main event, Antonius finished third and took home $633,419.

The HighstakesDB figures can best put Antonius’ upswing into perspective. Below are the 2013 Full Tilt cash game standings.


Viktor “Isildur1” Blom: $4,063,347
Alexander “PostflopAction” Kostritsyn: $3,474,146
Ben “Bttech86” Tollerene: $1,841,245
Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond: $1,797,335
Patrik “FinddaGrind” Antonius: $1,523,801


Ben “Sauce1234” Sulsky: $1,904,302
Phil “Polarizing” Ivey: $1,851,903
Gus Hansen: $1,640,949
patpatpanda: $1,330,885
Scott “mastrblastr” Seiver: $1,220,393

Isildur1’s downswing officially came to an end when he surged to a $1.86 million profit in mid-March, taking the Swedish pro to the top of the chart with over $4 million in earnings. With a loss of $1.1 million last month alone, Phil Ivey’s record is not as glowing as would be expected.
