The new ultra high-limit tables on Full Tilt Poker, set up at the request of Patrik Antonius, produced their first truly massive pot early Friday morning.
The action took place at the brand-new "RailHeaven" table, which is a six-handed $500/$1000 No Limit Hold'em game. There is a minimum buy-in of $50,000 on this table, and a maximum buy-in of $200,000. Both Rosenkrantz and Antonius had both bought in for the maximum, $200,000.
Antonius recently called out the top young cash-game players in the world, saying that they were avoiding him. "pr1nnyraid", a player who has made millions online in the past year, stepped up to the challenge. The two have tangled a couple of times over the past few weeks.
"pr1nnyraid" had a stack of $230k compared to the $219k stack of Antonius when the following $438k hand was played:
"pr1nnyraid" had the button and raised to $3,000. Antonius called in the Big Blind. They were the only two players at the table.
The flop came J-K-5 rainbow.
Antonius checked. "pr1nnyraid" bet $5,000. Antonius raised to $18,000, and "pr1nnyraid" called.
The turn was the 2 of clubs, putting two clubs on the board. Antonius bet $31,000, and "pr1nnyraid" just called.
The river was the 7 of hearts. The board now read J-K-5-2-7, with two hearts and two clubs.
Antonius checked. "pr1nnyraid" called time and eventually pushed his remaining stack of $177,994 into the middle.
Antonius called time as well, and eventually called.
Antonius showed A-K for top pair, top kicker. "pr1nnyraid" showed K-9 of hearts for top pair, weaker kicker, and lost the $438k pot.
After a few more big pots, Antonius is currently sitting with a stack of over $560k, having taken a total of $360k from Rosenkrantz.
