Patrik Antonius Back In Profit After Winning Back $3.6 Million

After a disastrous start to 2010, which saw him dropping $3.6 million at Full Tilt Poker’s high stakes cash tables, Patrik Antonius has finally managed to turn things around once more, and is currently showing a profit for the year of about $83,000.
Up until March 15th, the Finnish pro was the biggest loser on the site for the year and was caught up in one of the biggest downswings of his poker career.
However, the advent of spring seems to have revitalised his recovery and a mere month and a half later, Antonius has recouped his $3.66 million losses over 27,467 hands played, to go back into the black.
Last night, continuing his latest comeback, Patrik Antonius won another $170,000 playing mostly $300/$600 Pot Limit Omaha against players such as Tom Dwan, Phil Ivey, Cole South and Gus Hansen.
Huge swings are part and parcel of the game of poker and the higher one goes up the stakes the bigger those swings become and the greater the mental fortitude required to deal with the stress. Patrik Antonius has certainly shown plenty of that over the past few difficult months and now looks to have got his game firmly back on track once more.
Talking of swings, despite still being the highest earner on Full Tilt Poker for 2010, Tom “durrrr” Dwan has recently seen his profits dive from its peak of $7.3 million to its present $3.8 million. It has taken just two weeks for Dwan to lose $3.5 million of his hard won bankroll, compounded by a $524,000 losing session last night.
We will endeavour to keep you updated as to the ongoing ups and downs in fortunes experienced by the top pros.
