Patrik Antonius and Viktor Kudinov have shocked fans with two of the bravest hero calls you are ever likely to see while playing in the Triton Cyprus series. The pair of high-stakes pros were playing in $25K and $30K events against top-quality opposition but showed absolutely no fear in their decisions.
Patrik Antonius and Viktor Kudinov Produce a Pair of Sick Hero Calls
Patrik Antonius was fighting for his first ever Triton High Roller title and down to the final three players when this amazing hand cropped up, catching the attention of viewers watching on Twitch.
The blinds were 200,000/400,000/400,000 and Fahredin Mustafov raised to 800,000 on the button with T♥8♣. Patrik Antonius called with J ♥2♥.
The flop came down 7♥ 2♣ 6♣ and Antonius checks. Mustafov bets 700,000 and Antonius calls.
The turn is the Q♥. Antonius checks again and Mustafov barrels 1.4 million. The Finn calls.
The river the A♦. Antonius checks and Mustafov jams all-in for his remaining 3.5 million chips.
Check out the video in the tweet below to see what happened next.
In a tournament defining moment, @Patrik_Antonius makes the most INSANE CALL with immense ICM pressure from the chip leader Mustafov. Have you ever seen anything like this in a $25k!?!?

In the second hand, Viktor Kudinov goes up against German star Fedor Holz in the $30K 6-Max final table.
With eight players remaining and blinds of 50,000/100,000/100,000, Fedor Holz raises to 240,000 in the small blind with 6♦4♣ and Viktor Kudinov calls with T♣9♠.
The flop comes down Q♥ 2♣ K♥ and both players check.
The turn is the K♠. Holz stabs 175,000 and Kudinov calls.
The river is the A♣ and Holz fires 390,000 with his air sending Kudinov into deep thought. Check out the video below to see who takes down the pot.
If you thought the now LEGENDARY @Patrik_Antonius call from yesterday was big…. Kudinov shows that he also has super HERO-calling powers in this hand against @CrownUpGuy 🤯💥 Is everyone just massively over-bluffing in the Triton Super High Rollers?! pic.twitter.com/GD5W21Gnb6
