His poker skills are worth dying for, but who knew that Patrik Antonius is also blessed with a pair of legs that might not give Usain Bolt a run for his money, but are enough to make him reach the EPT Monte Carlo Main Event on time.

Antonius And His Insta Captures

This is not the first time Antonius’ Instagram is littered with interesting tales. The high-stakes star is always active on social media. He likes to keep in touch with his fans by sharing amusing stories every now and then. Only this time, he ran for poker.

Interestingly, Antonius ran into this nail-biting sprint after he exceeded a break in the $4.5million Main Event. He took double-quick time to cover the distance from his dinner table to the final table at the Monte Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort. Well, Antonius’ fans also need to thank the super-fit cameraman for capturing the story so flawlessly.

The fast-legged race did not win him the title. However, the Finnish player was able to add a handsome amount of $168,280 to his $13million+ in career tournament earnings. His short stack fell into the hands of the winner, Nicolas Dumont. The Paris driving school instructor took home a whopping $861,673 and a $30K Platinum Pass to the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure.

The Fan Connect

In spite of disappointment at the tables, Antonius, as always,  thanked his fans and supporters on social media.

Antonius likes to share about his poker tours and upcoming tournaments through his Instagram. His posts reflect his passion for poker and life. Well shot pictures in exotic locations to candid moments, his fans drool over the celebrity’s lifestyle.

In a recent post on his Instagram, Antonius looks nothing short of a supermodel. The poker legend is seen posing on a yacht deck amidst the picturesque aquamarine backdrop in Monte-Carlo, Monaco. And this is what he had to say, “Just a quick update, next week start the third season of the Triton Poker Super High Roller Series in Montenegro, I’m in and I do updates mainly via Instagram! Now few days just chilling and getting ready!”
