Patrik Antonius Up $1.35 Million on FTP Since "Black Friday"Published on April 23rd, 2011 3:28 pm EST
I think it's safe to say that Patrik Antonius is officially the best player on Full Tilt Poker right now.
Even since "Black Friday", players such as Phil Ivey, Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond have been unable to play on Full Tilt Poker.
As a matter of fact, of the seven biggest cash game winners in the history of Full Tilt Poker, only one (Patrik Antonius) is still able to play on the site. Phil Ivey, Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond, Di "Urindanger" Dang, Daniel "jungleman12" Cates, Hac "trex313" Dang and Ashton "theASHMAN103" Griffin have all been shut out of Full Tilt Poker thanks to "Black Friday".
Patrik Antonius has taken full advantage of the fact that his toughest competition on FTP is now sitting on the sidelines, as he is up over $1.35 million since April 16th.
Many of the high stakes cash game regulars love playing Gus Hansen, and now Patrik Antonius practically has "The Great Dane" all to himself.
It will be interesting to see how Antonius does on Full Tilt throughout the rest of 2011. Sure, the pool of available opponents for Antonius has been thinned out dramatically thanks to "Black Friday", but that pool of high stakes regulars included many of the best players in the world (Ivey, Dwan, Galfond, etc).
Here are the biggest high stakes winners and losers since "Black Friday":
Patrik Antonius, $1,351,388
"Wreed Platzak", $125,685
"Jp kelly", $125,525
Gus Hansen, -$671,670
"O Fortuna PLS", -$251,622
