No one is inviting Patrik Antonius to their reindeer games. Or at least that how he makes it sound when PokerNews’ Sarah Herring asks the High Stakes Poker regular why we don’t see him on the felt as much as we used to.
Patrik seemingly has been playing less poker and spending more time with his family, playing sports and what not. It’s not necessarily that he wouldn’t like to play more but the biggest games in the world, which is his forte, are becoming more like private games with only a select type invited and for some reason for guys like Antonius – that’s not a good thing.
The games both have and have not dried up according to Patrik. They are still out there, but you have to be a certain “type” of grinder in order to take a seat and it seems that perhaps that leaves this Finnish poker player getting iced out.
