Patrik Antonius, Gus Hansen Losing Big as of Late

European poker pros Patrik Antonius and Gus Hansen have run out of luck in recent days. 

Antonius has had a strong showing since the infamous April 15 indictments that sent his online poker room packing from the US market.  That all changed over the weekend. Antonius managed to lose a measly $150k while playing just 251 hands.  We say “measly” since he’s up over $1.7 million in the last month.  One of the benefits of leaving the US market is the lack of competition from American pros.  Antonius is among the strongest benefactors to date.
