Patrik Antonius, almost back to even on the year.

Patrik Antonius made over $141k at a shark-filled $300/$600 Pot Limit Omaha Game on Full Tilt yesterday that featured the likes of Tom Dwan, Phil Ivey, Cole South and Gus Hansen.

While the railbirds got to see five of their favorite players around one table (four of which are Full Tilt team pros), the action wasn't nearly as explosive as they would have liked.

Antonius was the game's biggest winner and he was able to do it without a single monster pot. The largest hand Antonius was involved in was a $56k pot won by Gus Hansen.

Antonius went on to win $141,717 at the table, $170k on the day.

Hansen, who stayed at the six-max game for 156 hands, went on to lose $68,520 before moving on to a heads-up $500/$1,000 Cap-PLO match against Ashton "theASHMAN103" Griffin. After 186 hands against Griffin, Hansen had dropped over $230k.

Thanks to a couple smaller wins along the way, Hansen finished the day down only $224,352.

The largest pot of the entire six-max session weighed in at only $94,196 with South getting it all in on the flop with top set of queens against Dwan's two pair and Hansen's straight draw.

The turn and river only helped South, who improved his hand to a full house to take down the three-way pot.

South went on to win both the second- and third-largest pots of the day as well, but was unable to hold on to the winnings finishing up just $5,837.

South made up for his disappointing six-max results by making over $124k at $200/$400 Cap PLO to finish the day up $107,741.

Ivey, who has been slowly grinding his way into a multi-million dollar year, played just 83 hands at the table and left up $12,067.

Finally, Dwan, who had just come off a large loss on the weekend, limited his day to just the one six-max session, losing $81,325 during his 179 hand stay.
