Poker pro Patrik Antonius has to be very happy after just the first week of November, as he is up slightly over $1.3 million dollars on the Hold’em and Omaha tables since the beginning of the month. Antonius has taken some huge pots off of just about every opponent he has faced.

At one point, Antonius and LarsLuzak were battling heads up and had both managed to build their stacks up over $200k. Phil Ivey then decided to sit down and play, but shortly after was stacked by Antonius. Patrik raised from under the gun to $3.5k and was reraised by Ivey. Antonius then raised again up to $45.5k only to have Ivey push all in for another $38k. Antonius made the call and showed Td 8h, while Ivey turned over Ah Ks. The ten high flop came in favor of Antonius though and Ivey could not catch up, giving Antonius the $170k pot.

The pot left both Antonius and LarsLuzak sitting with more than $300k on the table, and led to the biggest hand of the week so far. Patrik Antonius was dealt pocket eights and raised from the button to $3k. LarsLuzak reraised from the big blind up to $11k and was called by Antonius. The flop came 3d 5s 8c and Antonius now had to try to get the most value out of his hand. LarsLuzak helped him out by betting out $16k, which Antonius flat called. The turn came the As and this time LarsLuzak put out a $32k bet, which Antonius smooth called again. The river was the last eight in the deck, giving Antonius quads, and once again LarsLuzak bet out $68k. This time Antonius shoved his stack, raising it to almost $259k. LarsLuzak must have had something big because he made a quick call only to be shown the nuts and he was forced to watch the $600k+ pot slide Antonius’ way.

Another online poker pro, durrrr, also was not safe from the wrath of Antonius. During their heads up match Antonius raised from the button to $3k only to be reraised by durrrr to $9k. Antonius called the raise and the flop came 6s 7s 2h. Durrrr bet out almost $13k and Antonius reraised all in, forcing durrrr to decide whether he wanted to commit the rest of his $60k. In the end he decided it was worth it, but as he turned over pocket tens he was in deep trouble against Antonius’ queens. The turn was another queen which sealed the deal and Patrik Antonius added another $81.5k to his stack.

Antonius and durrrr were involved in another pot worth nearly $200k this week. LarsLuzak raised from under the gun and was called by durrrr. Antonius then squeezed from the big blind, raising it up to $14.5k. Durrrr then pushed all in with his pocket nines and was instantly called by Antonius who flipped over pocket kings. Again durrrr was on the wrong end of a pocket pair vs. pocket pair situation. The cards came Ts 4d As Th Qh and durrrr couldn’t catch anything, leaving Antonius to take the $190k pot.

Fellow Full Tilt Poker sponsored pro Gus Hansen also tangled it up with Antonius a few times throughout the week. In one particular hand, Hansen was dealt As Ac and raised from under the gun to $3k. This raise was called by durrrr, lady marmelade, and Patrik Antonius. The flop came 8s 5h 7c and the action was checked to Hansen who bet $6k. This bet made durrrr fold, but the two other players wanted to see the turn and made the call. The turn was the Kd and this time Antonius bet $19k right into Hansen, who pushed for another $46.6k with his overpair. Antonius made the call and turned over 9d Ks and needed to catch a king, nine, or six on the river to beat Hansen. It just wasn’t Hansen’s day as Antonius spiked a king on the river giving him three of a kind and the win in the $161k pot.

Another huge pot Patrik Antonius was involved in this week was worth nearly a quarter million dollars. Urindanger raised to $3k preflop and Antonius made the call from the big blind. The flop came Kc 2c 4s and Urindanger bet out $4k, but Antonius reraised to $14k. Urindanger made the call and the turn brought the Qh. Antonius led out this time for $21k and Urindanger just made the call. The river was the 8c and Antonius checked it over to Urindanger who pushed all in for $73k. Eventually Antonius made the call and Urindanger turned over Kh 8s for two pair. Antonius mucked his hand, but although he lost this one big pot, he still has to be happy with how the week went as a whole.
