Antonius, despite being just 37 years of age, has been active in the poker world for over 15 years. While many other players have rocketed to stardom and fizzled out (or gone on to other things), Antonius has remained a consistent presence.

While Antonius has made most of his money from cash games, he has made an effort to play more tournaments as of late, and the results have been great.

Since the start of 2018, Antonius has more than $4.5 million in cashes, including a second place in the Super High Roller Bowl Macau for over $3 million. Antonius used to shy away from the tournament circuit in the past, though he is clearly starting to find value in taking part in the tournament poker grind.


Patrik Antonius had a chance this week to add another European Poker Tour title to his resume, as he found himself making the final table of the EPT Monte Carlo main event.

Despite entering the final table with a healthy chip stack, Antonius was unable to get things going, eventually bowing out in sixth place after his K-Q came up short against the A-8 of diamonds of Nicolas Dumont.

Antonius added another six figure cash to his resume, however, as he walked away with nearly 140k Euros.


With the World Series of Poker starting in less than a month, Patrik Antonius is clearly in top form and has a string of big cashes to show for it.

If you are taking part in any WSOP fantasy drafts this year, Antonius should be a strong pick.
