Patrik Antonius' Adds Another $1 Million To His Bankroll At WeekendSeptember 28, 2010 11:30 am
Compared to his incredible $9 million winning year at Full Tilt in 2009, Patrik Antonius has had quite a struggle on his hands in 2010 where his bankroll hit a downswing right from the start.
In fact, Antonius’ was stuck $3.61 million by February and was unable to show a profit until July. Since then the Finnish pro has been up and down but has now got his year firmly back on track after winning $1.1 million last weekend.
Playing 2,836 hands over three days of mostly $300/$600 Six-Max PLO and $2k/$4k Omaha Hi-Lo, Antonius managed to rake in the impressive amount playing predominantly against such pros as Phil Ivey, Ilari Sahamies, Tom Dwan, Ingenious89 and cadillac1944.
However, it was his fellow Fin Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies who contributed the most to his winning weekend, which now takes Antonius’ profits for the year to $800k.
Antonius also now sits atop the Full Tilt leader board for September and is currently showing a profit for the month of $992.284.
Ironically, it is Sahamies who is now showing a slender profit for his high stakes endeavours throughout the year after dropping $921k at the weekend. With his enormous loss, Sahamies is presently down $-336.629,10 in September and remains in profit for 2010 by just $210k.
Looking at the year as a whole, the online prodigy known as “jungleman12” has now managed to manoeuvre himself to the top of Full Tilt’s money board, and is showing a profit of $3.669.648 for the year so far.
However, there really isn’t much separating the top three positions with Tom “durrr” Dwan ($3.610.278) and Phil Ivey ($3.315.451) close behind. A fourth place LokoIsBack, however, is over a million dollars adrift on $2.367.394.
Leading the losing contingent is Brian “sbrugby” Townsend, who continues to haemorrhage his bankroll having dropped $-860.359 in September to go $-2.534.059 down for the year.
Despite an impressive start in 2007, when he first joined Full Tilt and went over $3 million in profit, Townsend is now down -$623,427 over three and a half years of play on the site.
