Patrik Antonius launches live series to promote new app
Finnish poker celebrity pro Patrik Antonius is all set to host his namesake live series called ‘The Patrik Antonius Poker Challenge (PAPC)’. The series is first heading to the capital city of Tallinn in Estonia between 1-7 April 2019. Antonius inaugurated the tour to promote his new poker mobile app called ‘First Land of Poker (FLOP)’.
Antonius has been busy in for a few months on live felts, signing up for various events around the world like Battle of Malta to the Triton Poker Series. The details of his new app FLOP aren’t out yet and will be launched on app stores with the advent of the Tallinn series.
The Tallinn series will include a total of 52 events, and joining Antonius is Teresa Nousianen, former European Poker Tour (EPT) Tournament Director, to help him with organizing his first live series. The event includes tournaments ranging from almost nothing to €25k buy-in.
The highlight of the series will of course be the €1,500 Main Event running between 4-7 April. The tournament will feature 60-minute levels throughout its 4 days and players can re-enter and receive a fresh stack of 30k chips until the end of the first blind level on Day 2.
Antonius confirmed his presence at the PAPC and said, “It is obviously nice to have my own event. I see a lot of things in poker I want to improve, and we are introducing a lot of new things in our live events.”
Antonius is a legendary poker player from Finland. He has over $11 million in live earnings till now and is first in his country’s all-time money list. He is a former tennis player and coach and a model. He currently resides in Monte Carlo.
