A former model and accomplished tennis player, Patrik Antonius began playing poker professionally in 2002. In 2005, the  Finnish player had a breakout year on the poker circuit, finishing third in Barcelona in a European Poker Tour event, first in a European Poker Tour event in Baden Bei Wien, and then topped off his year with a second-place finish in the World Poker Tour (WPT)Five-Diamond World Poker Classic.

In addition to his tournament success, Antonius 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 Benyamin and Jennifer Harman.

Patrik has made final table television appearances on three of the largest poker tours – the World Poker Tour, European Poker Tour, and the World Series of Poker (WSOP) . Antonius has also been featured on such made-for-TV hits as Poker after Dark (NBC), High Stakes Poker (GSN), and the National Heads-Up Poker Championship (NBC).

One of Patrick’s greatest moments as a professional player came at the 2006 World Series of Poker, when he reached the final table of the prestigious $50,000 H.O.R.S.E. event, in what was deemed as one of the greatest final tables in the history of poker. Final table participants included; Jimmy Bechtel, Doyle Brunson, Andy Bloch, Phil Ivey, T.J Cloutier, Chip Reese, David Singer, and Dewey Tomoko.

Antonius ranks as Finland’s all-time leading tournament money winner and ranks fourth among poker players of Scandinavian descent, trailing only Gus Hansen, Chris Bjorin and Martin De Knijff.

When not at the poker table, Antonius enjoys daily workouts and regular games of tennis, as well as a new found love for golf. Patrik recently became a new father and now spends much of his time with his daughter, Mila, and fiancée, Maya.
