The trip had been going as well as could be expected. Antonius was booking a win every single day he played in the smaller games that he plays - 2k/4k and 3k/6k. Then it all started to go wrong when the table decide to boost the stakes up to 6k/12k. As if that wasn’t bad enough, these troubles were accompanied by a severe bout of food poisoning.

In the final session, after almost six hours of play, he had won only one single hand. This is usually an unbelievable scenario but we can trust such a player when he tells us that he made no real mistakes. It was just a case of always having the second best hand and that the way it goes sometimes.

Antonius tells how his mental strength will pull him through this severe downswing and no doubt we will soon see him in one game or another crushing like the man we are used to seeing.
