Gus Hansen and Patrik Antonius continue to be the driving force in a new era of cash games on Full Tilt Poker.

Last night Antonius got some measure of revenge against his Danish friend who took several hundred thousand from him over the weekend.

Antonius logged 126 hands last night including 66 of $300/$600 PLO and 60 of $3,000/$6,000 PLO Hi-Lo.

All of Antonius’ hands were against Hansen and in the end the Finn raked in a total of $137k.

Hansen tried to right the ship by logging another 173 hands of $300/$600 against anyone he could find but he still lost a total of $168k on the night. 

The Great Dane is likely not worried as he’s still up over $4 million on Full Tilt this year. Whether he’ll be able to withdraw that money any time soon is definitely up for debate. 

Meanwhile Antonius, who had a rough start to the year, is now within $100k of being even in 2011.

Although Antonius was the biggest winner, NoPasaran also had a dominant night pulling in $54k.

U.S. players were obviously still absent from Full Tilt Poker last night and there were some new faces at the top of the online poker charts. 

Among the top players on PokerStars (which is also devoid of U.S. players) were K_0_S_T_Y_A (+$47k), 0Human0 (+$36k), vence0r (+$27k) and diemaus36o (+$21k).

Meanwhile the losers included scout326 (-$48k), FallAtYourFeet (-$40k), podnil (-$27k) and thecortster (-$26k). One of the few recognizable players was Vaga_Lion who lost $27k.

Many high stakes railbirds are starting to wonder if U.S. players like Tom “durrrr” Dwan, Dan “jungleman12” Cates and Scott “URnotINdanger2” Palmer will be jumping a plane to Europe in the not-so-distant future.
