Heavy hitters Antonius, Hoss_TBF square off

Patrik Antonius
Hello, how are you, I'm Patrik. My watch is the same size as your head.

No one can say Patrik Antonius ever ducks a challenge.

Showing why he keeps his reputation as one of the game's best, Patrik "Finddagrind" Antonius stepped up for another heads-up $1k/$2k Limit Hold'em session on Full Tilt Poker last night with Matt "Hoss_TBF" Hawrilenko, one of the top five Fixed-Limit Hold'em players in the world.

It wasn't a particularly epic session, lasting only an hour or two, but it was still long enough to show some big swings.

Biggest pot overall from the session was for $28,000 and went to Hawrilenko, who showed down K-Q off-suit to drag the chips.
