Patrik Antonius held his ground against newcomer WastedPotential last night, winning a total of $355k.

Antonius and WastedPotential played 927 hands of $500/$1,000 PLO against each other in the session and Antonius was relentless.

The Finnish Team Full Tilt pro scooped several monster pots including the biggest one of the night – a $245k cooler.

The nightmare wasn’t over for WastedPotential, however, as he also lost $52k to Arbiannight in $200/$400 PLO and dropped $32k in a $200/$400 Cap Six-Max game that included harrington25 and Vaga_Lion. WastedPotential’s total losses for the night were $385,000.

Although the online handle WastedPotential was first seen in 2007 there hasn’t been much activity on the account and there is heavy debate amongst poker fans as to who the screen name belongs to.

Whoever owns the account is likely not very happy. WastedPotential is down $455k in 2010.

Meanwhile Antonius, who has had an up-and-down year, is now up $442k, mostly thanks to his winnings last night.

In other high stakes action last night Tom Dwan and jungleman12 played a very short session of the durrrr Challenge last night. The pair recorded 258 hands and Dwan won $32,778. They have yet to record a session of over 1,000 hands since returning from London.

DrugsOrMe added $218k to his roll, harrington25 won $179k and Urindanger recorded a $131k win.

Meanwhile thecranium (-$272k), UarePileous (-$202k) and rafiboy (-$68k) were amongst the biggest losers. In a sign that perhaps the big game is dry right now both Eli Elezra and Jennifer Harman hit the online tables last night. Elezra lost $48k while Harman dropped $39k.
