Born in 1980 in Helsinki Finland, Patrik Antonius, a former tennis player, coach and model is one of the most revered figures in the work of poker. Currently living in Monte Carlo, Antonius started his professional poker career under Marcel Luske as a member of the famous Circle of Outlaws before polishing his skills under the mentorship Jennifer Harman.
Antonius has featured in several poker tournament circuits which have given him both the cash and built him a reputation in the gamblers fraternity.
In addition to this, he frequently backs up other players in poker games and tournaments, both online and offline hence making a guess on his net worth trickier since such investments could lead to profits or losses that are hard to implement.

By 2011, Antonius had already amassed over $4m from all his live tournament wins with around $911,178 being straight from his 14 wins from a WSOP event.
His September 2008 second place finish is rumored to not only have given him $320,000 but also access to a sponsor deal that has given him around 0.5 percent stakes (around $20 million of date).
Player Backup Escapades
With several online poker accounts at Full Tilt Poker and other rooms, it would be safe to assume that Antonius has also made quite a fortune in his online poker ventures. Couple this with the fact that he also backs up other players in tournaments, for instance the 2010 World Series of Poker, it would be safe to assume that he also got a nice share of Michael Mizrachi’s $2,332,992 main event strike.
Antonius’ Possible Net worth
Coupling his rampant wins with a few claims he has made on losing quite a sum in backing up players, it would not be a wild guess to place Antonius’ net worth at around $30 million to $40 million. This could split halfway in terms of liquid assets and other assets like the alleged shares at Full Tilt Poker among other possible investments.
