Patrik Antonius Up $1.3 Million in the Last Two Weeks


According to HighStakesDB, Finland’s Patrik Antonius (pictured) has been on fire lately. In fact, Antonius, who plays as “FinddaGrind” on Full Tilt, is up $1.3 million in the last two weeks and a total of $773,000 in 2014.

We’ll let HighStakesDB describe Antonius’ $466,000 win on Sunday, which has helped fuel his recent run: “All of Antonius’ winnings came from a 2.25-hour session at FLO8 played against KPR16, Isildur1, and (briefly) Polarizing. The session was already 2.5 hours old when FinddaGrind joined, with Isildur1 sitting on top of a nice $400K stack after winning close to $300K from KPR16. That entire stack was soon to be with FinddaGrind, however, as the Finnish pro won a total of $466.5K from the session. KPR16 ended up down $173.2K, with Blom losing $272.5K.”

Antonius followed up his $466,000 win on Sunday with another $106,000 in profit on Monday, the third highest total of anyone.

According to HighStakesDB, Antonius’ “FinddaGrind” account is up nearly $5 million at the cash game tables on Full Tilt since the tracking site began following it seven years ago. Over that time span, Antonius is up $2.8 million at Fixed Limit Omaha High-Low, $1.6 million at Texas Hold’em, $564,000 at Eight-Game, and $549,000 at Pot Limit Omaha. He is in the red, albeit slightly, in Limit Hold’em and Draw Games.

Antonius’ largest pot played under his “FinddaGrind” user name came in 2013 at a $250/$500 Pot Limit Omaha table on Full Tilt and was worth $236,000.

Antonius has also lit it up on the live scene. Impressively, his last seven in the money finishes in live events have all been for at least $100,000, dating back to 2011, according to the Hendon Mob. In February, he finished fifth in the Aussie Millions AUD $100,000 Challenge for USD $626,000. He finished second in the series’ AUD $250,000 Challenge in 2012 for USD $1.2 million.
