At one point last week Patrik Antonius had passed Gus Hansen on the 2011 leader board for cash-game winnings. However, Antonius imploded, degenerating all of his profits back in the following days.Antonius started off the run by destroying Rui Cao for about $800,000 at $500-$1,000 pot-limit Omaha last Thursday. By capturing multiple six-figures pots, Antonius was in command the entire match, sending his French opponent into surrender.Combined with other one-versus-one sessions, Antonius had profited nearly $1 million from the European crowd in just one day on Full Tilt Poker. With nearly $3 million in earnings on the year, Antonius was now ahead of Hansen, who had been hovering around $3.5 million for the past couple of months before recently dropping about a million of his profits.Hansen seemed to have something to say about being second on the leader board, because shortly after Antonius passed him, the Danish pro went on to help take back all of Antonius’ winnings from the week and then some.Largely in nosebleed limit Omaha high-low eight-or-better sessions, Hansen took his fellow site pro for hundreds of thousands, sending Antonius on a downward spiral that eventually saw about $1.5 million of his recent winnings disintegrate. As a result, Hansen is back on top in cyberspace with $3.5 million in virtual currency.Other news from the past week includes American Cole South returning to action on Full Tilt Poker. South, who lists his new location as Canada, has been a huge loser online this year, but managed to win about $200,000 in sessions over the past week across the border up north.Over at PokerStars, Viktor “Isildur1” Blom is having one of his best months since reemerging onto the scene after going broke again and again during his exciting run on Full Tilt Poker back in 2009 and 2010. Blom is now in the black about $450,000 from heads-up matches in May, but if his history is any prediction for the future, he will likely dump all of that back into the high-stakes sea. Blom has been one of the most unsuccessful six-max pot-limit Omaha players online this year.While a player like South allegedly made the move to Canada, a high-stakes pro like Ashton Griffin is relishing in his ability to broaden his life goals and take a break from the six-figure coin flips of the nosebleed culture. Card Player TV recently caught up with the Floridan to talk about his poker career and his future plans.
