This is a discussion on Last Call -- The story of @Patrik_Antonius pt. 1 (with English subtitles!) within the online poker forums, in the Poker News and Events section; Stories include:
- Turning 200€ into tens of millions
- Owning everyone at PLO potting ~every hand
- Early days working odd jobs as a teenager
Hutzpaf, have now watched both episodes and absolutely loved them.
The first episode with Dan Tolppanen and Jens Kyllonen was great as well as the Patrik Antonius episode which followed. Interesting to see Dan Tolppanen is one of the producers who then interviewed Antonius (I presume because of his entrepenurial background with music etc) so I am curious...are there going to be further episodes, is it a series?
Anyways excellent stuff and thanks for bringing it to the forum attention!
In the third episode, the story of Patrik continues..so at least one more episode is coming.
I don't know how many episodes will be.
In addition to Dan and Jens, Patrik Antonius and Dara O’Kearney star in the first production season.
Excellent! I can't wait.
One really funny moment was when Patrick Antonius was describing first meeting Ilari Sahamies and Patrik said ' he was quite a loudmouth...' and Dan without a beat said he still is! Had me laughing out loud.
So much has changed since that era but it must have been a blast to progress through the ranks in the early days of online. The story of Antonius and Kyllonen's ascent to the nosebleed limits is astonishing and well worth watching.
Glad they added subtitles, on another forum the producer of these videos "Chuck Bass" said they would release a version in english, but perhaps he only meant "closed captioning"... but even that will be good enough I guess, I subscribed to the channel as soon as I found out about these interesting videos.
Edit: yes there won't be english language versions, I guess I misinterpreted, his exact quote is "English version will follow approximately 2-3 weeks later." so if there's no closed captions in English yet, just wait a few weeks and check back then.
P.S. Just watched Episode 1... and it was outstanding. What an excellent production, even if it was only just two people talking about their poker experiences... the Finnish people really do have something special about them... much respect and admiration... and also note... Jens Kyllönen began his poker career by playing in freerolls, just like us.
Just watched Part 3, the second part of the Patrik Antonius interview. Another excellent episode.
Obviously Antonius is a fluent English speaker but there is just something about two Finns talking to each other that produces a really nice, open relaxed conversation. Tolppanan is a good interviewer and he certainly 'revealed' more to us about Antonius than anyone else I am aware of, so well done.
