Patrik Antonius

Benefitting from the madness that was a mid-month crackdown on Internet poker by US law enforcement, European players made out like bandits.  More specifically, Patrik Antonius and Jens Kyllönen.

Antonius is the Finnish player who just happens to be one of the most revered high stakes players in online poker today.

Jens "Ingenious89" Kyllönen also comes to us from Finland.  Like Antonius, he’s proven solid on the live poker circuit as well.  Kyllönen won the 2009 EPT Copenhagen event while cashing for DKK 6,542,208 ($1,120,815).

High Stakes DB noted that Patrik Antonius won the most in April, $2.320.431, while Jens "Ingenious89/Jeans89" Kyllönen was the second biggest winner with around $1,4M in winnings.
