I can assure you this hand is real and the amounts are real and Patrik Antonious played it against another high stakes online player

Brace yourself...

That was during the golden age of online nosebleed stakes (i.e. end of '09)...you'll rarely see money get thrown around like that on a regular basis online in 2011 to increase the odds that a sick hand like that could happen...

Clicked on the link and it played out the hand. Would need to watch the hand in actual time it took though in between bets, calls, raises to really have a better opinion on it.

Seen that on high stakes and it was the bad-behind call of the year.. Easy to make usually but with all that money riding it took huge stones

 Insane pot, and Patrik looked liked a genius with his call on the river.  Had it NOT worked, he would have looked like a Negreanu, Hellmuth, or Matusow.

The hand was played on Full Tilt as the surrounding text clearly states. 

That victorypoker.net insignia is just an advertisement.

even at $1/$2 NL I honestly would save my last $20 for parking and a cheap buffet before I threw it in with K high (10 kicker)...

Patrik put it all in with $101K.....

every fiber in my being says this just isn't true....

not online at least, no way that happened online where he can't have any type of read on a player except betting patterns and such. This all looks like it happened but man, I can't beleive it. That is crazy...

100% true. Patrik confirmed it in an interview.

This is the life of nose-bleed poker players...

At nosebleed stakes, you get to call the clock for several minutes on certain sites if you like...

Although FullTilt appears to make you call quicker than the average call in a casino for 100's of thousands of dollars
