Ilari “Ilari FIN” Sahamies gave Fake Love888 a world-class beating in the high stakes games on PokerStars last night.

Fake Love888, who is rumored to be Patrik Antonius, played just 350 hands of $200/$400 Cap PLO but got hammered for a $206k.

It seems more and more likely that Antonius is the man behind the account and recently online player JesusLebtNOT, also known as KagomeKagome on Full Tilt, referred to Fake Love888 as "Patrik" in the PokerStars chatbox.

If the account does indeed belong to Antonius he’s been incredibly swingy since returning to the high stakes games on PokerStars a few months ago.

The Fake Love888 account shot up to nearly $400k in profit as of mid-November but since then it has lost close to $600k and is currently down $178k in 2011.

According to a number of online databases Antonius was one of the biggest all-time winners on Full Tilt with over $10 million in profit.

Unfortunately Antonius was hit hard by Black Friday according to a story we did with him at WSOPE.

Meanwhile fellow Finn Ilari Sahamies continues to dominate. Sahamies dragged $81k in 497 hands last night, a good chunk coming directly from Fake Love888.

Sahamies is the easily the biggest winner of 2011 on PokerStars and is now up an astounding $2.6 million on the year. 

It could have been even better for Sahamies but online player 1II|1II|1iI slowed him down towards the end of the night. 1II|1II|1iI ended up playing 2,489 hands and winning a total of $180k last night.

Ben86 (+$79k), donthnrmepls (+$42k) and adiprene1 (+$49k) filled out the big five winners last night.

Fake Love888 was far and away the biggest loser night but altiFC (-$75k), Lrslzk (-$70k), ImagineKing (-$55k) and arbianknight (-$34k) all had unfortunate evenings.
