One day after Patrik Antonius won $900k on Full Tilt, he came crashing down by losing $353k.

Antonius fired off 664 hands of $3,000/$6,000 Omaha Hi-Lo and ran into some serious opposition from fellow Team Full Tilt member Gus Hansen.

Although O Fortuna PLS and Esvedra stopped by for several hands, the real action was between Hansen and Antonius.

Omaha Hi-Lo is widely considered Hansen’s best game and he certainly showed why last night.

The Great Dane ended up finishing his session up $200k while Antonius finally called it quits when he hit -$353k.

Thanks to last night’s action, Hansen is once again the biggest overall online winner in 2011 with $2.9 million in profit.

Meanwhile it was still a fantastic week for Antonius with $740,000 in profit. Both Hansen and Antonius will be heading into the 2011 WSOP with a lot of momentum.

Some of the other big winners last night included O Fortuna PLS, who made away with $138k and Sebastian Ruthenberg on PokerStars, who won $127k.

Rui Cao, who donated over $700k to Antonius on Wednesday, was able to win $115k on his “PepperoniF” account on PokerStars.

Viktor “Isildur1” Blom continued his good run on PokerStars with $96,000 in profit. The young Swede is still down $150k this year but was down more than $500k at one point.

Joining Antonius on the losing side was Esvedra who dumped $206k into the online tables. Other notable losers on the night included L0ve2playU (-$176k), urubu111 (-$152k) and FinnishNightmre (-$143k).
