Patrik Antonius Wins Massive Tennis Prop Bet Versus Brandon Adams

Must read

Patrik Antonius, man, myth, model, took on Full Tilt Pro Brandon Adams yesterday in a online kazino best of three sets, cash tennis match. Antonius, coming into the match as the clear favorite, offered Adams big odds. If Antonius won the match he was set to take home $30,000, while if Brandom Adams pulled out the victory he was set to win $295,000.
Antonius played competitively as a teen until various injuries forced him to play as a hobby. Though never playing on an international level, Antonius is widely known as one of the best tennis players amongst the situs slot deposit pulsa pros, due to his physical prowess, killer instinct and natural talents. Adams experience at poker comes from his passion playing from ages 11-14, and with friends in college.
The bet materialized last October, on an episode of pot limit omaha, Poker After Dark, when Antonius offered Adams, 20/1 the he couldn’t beat him at tennis. Originally they were set to play in Monaco on red clay. Those terms were later changed to 10/1, in exchange for letting Adams play on a hard surface in Vegas.
The match took place yesterday at the International Tennis Centre in Las Vegas with an NCAA experienced chair judge and two baseline judges. It was a best of three set match.
Antonius came out hard early, beating Adams in several close games to take the first set 6-0. Adams lack of experience in fast paces, tournament style tennis, showed early, with the judges pushes his serve and action. At one point he took timeout to speak to his trainer, and had five minutes to discuss strategy.
In the second set Adams was not able to hold it together, in his own words:
“Antonius has too much toughness for me. He missed 0% of his approach shots. He literally did not miss any time I put a ball at the service line in a rally. He drilled short balls into the corners for either a winner or a putaway on the next ball.”
Antonius steamrolled the second set 6-1 to close out the match. Spectators included Scott Seiver and various other friends in the poker community. After watching clips of the match, it’s interesting to see Antonius, known for his calm, composure and poker face at the table, actively chasing balls down the court, and getting physical with authority. Adams theorizes that Antonius has some sort of “clutch chromosome”, and that very few people can handle high pressure situations like Patrik Antonius can.
The good news for Adams is that in 2012, he has a chance to redeem himself. Antonius and Adams have agreed to play another tennis match in 2012, except this time Adams will get a 30-love advantage every time Antonius serves!
