The weekend always proves to be full of high stakes action on the biggest online poker sites PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker, with this weekend certainly being no exception. There were a bunch of solid displays, with both Hac “trex313” Dang and high stakes legend Patrik “FinddaGrind” Antonius coming out in the best shape.
The former managed to bank $239.7k to add to his impressive recent profits, bringing his total up to $1.2 million since just before the weekend. His profits came on Friday night when playing on the $200/$400 Pot Limit Omaha tables against no other than Viktor “Isildur1” Blom.
During this session he was involved in some pretty big pots too, with his biggest being when he took $124k after making a full house on the river.
Antonius made his winnings of $266.3k whilst playing on Saturday night, with the first match of his $1 million challenge against “Rui Cao”. This challenge was first thought to have been played last week; however it has now be learned that that was just a warm up.
“Rui Cao” won the warm up easily, yet this time it was all Antonius as he overpowered his opponent at the 2-7 Triple Draw tables to take home the first $300k. Patrik “FinddaGrind” Antonius did lose some of those winnings later on in the day though whilst playing at the mixed game tables.
There were plenty of other winners over the weekend too, with “Kipu” taking home $191.1k on PokerStars playing on the Pot Limit Omaha tables, whilst “patpatpanda” recouped some of his losses to the tune of $173.8k playing on the mixed game tables. Phil “Polarizing” Ivey also took home a decent profit of $158.5k whilst playing late on Friday night and Ben “Ben86” Tollerene won $205.7k over on PokerStars the very same evening.
The biggest hand seen at the weekend involved “patpatpanda” and “Ziigmund” with the latter making his gut shot straight draw on the turn to bank a pot of $183.2k. “patpatpanda” shrugged that loss off though to still finish the day with good profits, whilst his opponent didn’t really do too much else over the weekend.
