We were obviously thrilled when we learned the man, the myth, the legend, Patrik Antonius, was joining us here at BoM this year.
Like, really thrilled. It’s not every day you get a chance to sit at the same table as a poker icon in a €550 buy-in tournament.
And while his time in the Main Event was brief, we’re sure his tablemates will be talking about it for many days years to come.
Antonius’ trip to Malta wasn’t just about playing a €550 tournament, obviously.
He graciously dropped in as the surprise guest for the Pink October charity tournament with Boris Becker on Friday, and he’s also been shaking hands and kissing babies to promote his new app, Flop.
Standing for First Land of Poker, Antonius says Flop is here to help poker players with the basics in their day-to-day poker playing lives. Sounds like something we can use.
As part of his promotional tour he’s also offering up a piece of his action in many of his tournaments to come including at this year’s PCA in the Bahamas.
