No gold, but plenty of green for Antonius

Patrik Antonius would probably rather be playing for a gold bracelet instead of hitting the high-stakes online tables most nights.

But if you're going to come up short in the bracelet department - as Antonius has so far at the 2008 WSOP - taking some $100k pots off your friends at Full Tilt Poker isn't a bad way to kill some time.

Antonius squeezed in some action at the $200/$400 Pot-Limit Omaha tables last night with two of his favorite foes, Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies and Frenchman David Benyamine.

Antonius ended his two quick sessions up about $200k, with the bulk of it coming compliments of Sahamie, including the biggest pot, for $136k, when Antonius hit a full house on the river.
