Doyle Brunson


Patrik “FinddaGrind” Antonius vs. Doyle Brunson has been the hot topic lately. They will have a huge heads-up challenge in poker as well in golf. But Patrik has also many other bets coming this summer!

One that has been talked for ages is finally taking place – the tennis-bet with Gus Hansen. The match will be played also during the WSOP and it is worth $200.000 for the winner.

Then Patrik will face Brandon Adams in a combined tennis&golf bet for $100.000.

He will team up with his assistant Nick to play two Finnish pro players for a golf match worth $200.000.

And he will also face Daniel Negreanu in a huge heads-up with Stud 8 or Better & Golf – this one will be worth $500.000.

So Antonius is putting already $1.000.000 on the line without even counting the bet against Doyle Brunson – and that will propably be the biggest one!

Mucking straight flush?

Patrik hasn’t played very actively lately online, but we saw one pretty interesting hand:

Patrik AntoniusĀ and “ICallSoWhat” were facing each other on a PLO heads up match yesterday. “ICallSoWhat” only had $16k against Antonius $85k when this pot happened.
Antonius just called pre-flop and the flop came 6c 5c 2c.
Antonius check-called the bet by “ICallSoWhat” and the turn brought a 7h.

Then it all started to go wrong for Antonius. Antonius checked and “ICallSoWhat” bet $1,6k. Antonius lost connection and “ICallSoWhat” manage to won that small pot. After the hand Antonius was talking with “ICallSoWhat” about what happened and blamed FTP:

FinddaGrind: who won the pot?
ICallSoWhat: i did
FinddaGrind: what u had?
ICallSoWhat: nuts
FinddaGrind: i had straight flush lol
ICallSoWhat: of course u dont believe

Patrik Antonius (FinddaGrind) told recently that Doyle Brunson said that “he would do almost anything for a change to play Patrik Antonius heads-up” – implicating that Patrik would be a fish in his eyes.

Doyle Brunson said that he had never said that – he only has mentioned that some of the new internet-kids would be easy opponents for him. He thinks that Patrik Antonius is one of the few that have the skills and attitude to win in the biggest games possible.

But the challenge has been made, Patrik promised that he would play for any amount in any form of poker. Doyle is known for his skills in lots of different poker games and he has played in the biggest games of the planet for a very long time – so this has caught his attention. He talked that he would be willing to put amount of at least seven figures into play. Lets hope that this match happens!
