Patrik Antonius Signs with Poker Royalty for Worldwide Poker Marketing Representation

Poker Royalty, the industry’s premier poker representation agency, today announced that poker professional Patrik Antonius has selected Poker Royalty for worldwide management and marketing representation across all major platforms, including media, sponsorship, licensing, commercial endorsements and appearances.

Of Finnish descent, Antonius, 27, is one of the poker industry’s breakout young players as a well respected high-stakes online and live cash game player. Patrik often can be found playing in the high-stakes “big game” at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, competing against high-stakes players like Doyle Brunson, Barry Greenstein, Sammy Farha, David Benyamine and Jennifer Harman.

In making the announcement, Chris Porter, Director of Sales and Marketing, Poker Royalty, said, “Patrik is one of those rare combinations of natural abilities, looks and raw talent that can transcend the game of poker. Add Poker Royalty’s resources and core business relationships, and Patrik will be an even brighter star on the tour and off.”

Patrik has found success playing the tournament circuit, making final table television appearances on the World Poker Tour (WPT), European Poker Tour (EPT), and the World Series of Poker (WSOP). Antonius has also been featured on NBC’s Poker after Dark and on GSN’s High Stakes Poker. Most recently, Patrik competed in the 2008 NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship, which was an invitation-only poker event that brought together 64 of the world’s best players competing in a unique one-on-one, single-elimination, bracket-style format.

Antonius said, “Poker Royalty works with some of the biggest names in poker, creating for them the kind of opportunities no other company can provide. I am very excited about the new relationship with Poker Royalty.”
Patrik has won over $2.6 million in career tournament winnings, which ranks him in the Top 100 on the All-Time Money List. Of note, Patrik ranks 1st among Finnish players and 4th overall among all Scandinavian players, behind only Gus Hansen, Chris Bjorin and Martin De Knijff.
