Patrik Antonius is the game’s top online earner in April, up $1.5 million.
Also, Full Tilt Poker is expanding its casino game offerings and the WSOP Asia Pacific schedule has been released.
Patrik Antonius up $1.54 Million in April
Patrik Antonius is currently atop the online poker world with $1.54 million in earnings for the month of April. Antonius’ run came after a prolonged downswing that saw him down nearly $700,000 earlier in the month.
Many of the high-stakes games switched from Triple Draw to 8-Game earlier this month and that switch coincided with Antonius’ big run. Almost $1 million of his earnings have come in 8-Game with the rest from Omaha Hi-Lo.
His run in April also has Antonius as one of the year’s top earners. He is up $977,726 for the year. Only Daniel “jungleman12” Cates and Niki Jedlicka have earned more in 2014.
Full Tilt Expands Casino Game Offerings
Earlier in the year Full Tilt Poker started offering real-money blackjack and roulette to its customers and now it will expand those casino offerings.
Full Tilt Poker has signed an agreement with Net Entertainment for casino game hosting. Under the arrangement, Net Entertainment will provide casino games on Full Tilt Poker for both its desktop and mobile gaming clients.
