Drinking Game at ‘Patrik Antonius Poker Challenge’ Turns Wild & Crazy

The Estonian capital of Tallinn is the place where the first-ever Patrik Antonius Poker Challenge (PAPC) was held, at the Olympic Park Casino and the Hilton Tallinn Park from April 1 to 7, 2019. The event was sponsored by Antonius’ brand new poker social media app called First Land of Poker (FLOP), which was launched during the festival.

Patrik Antonius is ranked no. 1 in Finland’s All Time Money List at total live earnings of $11.8 million, according to the Hendonmob.

Aside from the Finnish poker pro, other big names in the international poker scene showed up to play in Antonius’ live tourney series and cash games, which include the likes of Dan “Jungleman” Cates, Robert Mizrachi, Timothy Adams, online poker legend Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies, and partypoker pro Joni Jouhkimainen.

There’s even a Drunk Challenge wherein shot glasses filled with booze was making rounds and after some time everyone felt loosey-goosey.

Lex Veldhuis was commentating on the games when he suddenly saw something quite inappropriate and not a usual sight at high-stakes poker tables. Sahamies initially got up from the table to apparently steal some sushi whereas the already drunk Sampo Ryynanen fumbled while trying to stack his chips.

Then, both of them stood beside each other, said something, and ended the conversation with a passionate kiss, leaving everyone speechless!

As the cash games went on, an unconscious Ryynanen had to be escorted out by two personnel and brought back to his room. While that’s not a good ending for any poker player at a high-stakes event, thing is, the PAPC has been a complete success and will most likely be making a comeback next year.


Patrik Antonius won his first trophy at his namesake poker festival: the PAPC €10,200 Championship Event for €78,100. The event drew a total of 20 players, and he amazingly defeated every opponent at the final table.
