Gus Hansen Leans on Patrik Antonius
It took almost two weeks, but the online nosebleed action is starting to heat up with large pots being shipped on 7-Game, and heads-up $200/$400 Pot-Limit Omaha last night.
Since the start of 2010 the 7-Game tables have been running most nights, but the action has been modest.
After 12 days of January, Di “Urindanger” Dang held the top spot for the year’s most profitable player with $430k.
But it wasn’t until Gus Hansen turned his sights to Patrik Antonius last night that we saw any sort of impressive numbers being posted. By midnight Hansen had beaten Antonius out of over $500k, moving himself above Dang with almost $900k profit on the year.
This loss put Antonius well in the lead for the year’s biggest loser, with over $923k in losses already.
However, Antonius did get some back early this morning playing Andrew “Browndog19” Brown at heads-up $200/$400 PLO.
Brown’s session actually began sitting across from 2009’s fourth most profitable player, Ashton “theASHMAN103” Griffin. Griffin only stuck around for 98 hands, long enough to grind over $58k worth of profit.
After he departed, Antonius took the seat, and does what he does best. Thanks in part to winning the largest pot of the session, worth $180k, Antonius finished playing heads-up after 169 hands with over $179k of Brown’s money.
