Poker star Patrik Antonius has recently announced that he will be hosting his own live own tournament series as part of a promotional campaign in that precedes the launch of First Land of Poker (FLOP), his poker app project.

At only 38, Antonius has had several great twists in his career including being one of the biggest of the online games as well as triumphing at the nosebleed cash games live with multiple massive tournaments scores. Also, as it turns out, before venturing into the world of online poker, the Finnish high-stakes poker star was a professional tennis player and a male model.

The past few months have been very busy for the star poker players who is arguably one of the best players in the space at the moment – he has been on the live tournament circuit in recent months and this has involved being part of a number of diverse events including such fan-favorites as the Battle of Malta and even the Triton Poker Series.

His next venture, as mentioned earlier, will not be far from poker even though they include projects in a field that he has less experience in. Even so, it is an incredibly interesting development for fans of poker from all over the world.

The Live Tournament Series

The poker star’s live tournament will include a total of 52 events and will be conducted with the help of some other industry bigwigs including Teresa Nousianen who is the former European Poker Tour (EPT) Tournament Director – there are some big expectations because of this. Buy-ins during the tournament series will range from 0 to as much as €25,000 which implies that there will be something for every kind of players including those who just want to enjoy a bit of casual, risk-free gaming.

Some of the highlights of the tournament series will be the €10,200 No-Limit Hold’em Championship Event held on the 6th and 7th of April and the €25,000 No-Limit Hold’em High Roller Event on April 3rd. in addition to those exciting gaming events will be a televised cash game though not many details have been released for that.

The exact details of the poker app still remain undisclosed but by the time it launches, the developers behind it will probably have figured out the strings. Of most interest is how the app will be distributed especially considering the strict policies of app stores such as Apple’s App Store which has been cracking down on gambling apps. Hopefully, there is something special in the works.

The Highlights

  • €1,500 buy-in (Unlimited Re-Entry) No-Limit Hold’em Main Event 4 – 7 April
  • €5,200 Pot-Limit Omaha 4 April
  • €5,200 No-Limit Hold’em 5 April
  • €10,200 No-Limit Hold’em Championship Event 6-7 April
  • €25,000 No-Limit Hold’em High Roller 3 April
