Posted on Thursday, September 04, 2014 by "T".
In 2009, Tom "durrrr" Dwan was at the height of his career and announced the durrrr challenge on an online poker forum to get some action: "I'm making this heads-up challenge to the world. Anyone can accept. Four tables, minimum of $200/$400, and I'll put up $1.5 million to their $500,000.

that was ridiculous challenge to begin with but those guys apparently dont take 'poker money' seriously, so 1m or so challenges are not a big deal to some people, lol

id go crazy if someone scams me for 1k, and its million we are talking about here... althro its a "poker money" million so it wouldnt last that much but still.... Tongue

Yes, fantastic amount of moneys in the round these Red Pros and high stakes players almost live in a totally different world. They almost think about million dollars than a usual player about an amount between one and ten dollars...

I really hope that Tom Dwan hasnt scammed him because Durrrr has always been one of my favourite players and i have always held him in such high regard that it would disappoint me greatly if this is true

Yeah he has the right to be pissed as this is a lot of money and also based on life, you have to complain when something is not good or unethical and this is what happens and glad we have some drama at the high stakes otherwise it would be boring to watch and so on. Anyway Tom Dawn and Durrrr are among the best players and i think they would not go for the challenge as he was bored, too little money lol! Cheers keep the news coming!

Not sure why but somehow many predicted that this will be the end of this challenge...

As someone above said i think Daniel took a bit too serious this challenge. He is doing good lately, i think he won't be too upset for too long Smile

Its more than five years but still this challenge is not completed. Tom is one of my favourite poker player and would not like to consider him as a scammer but this challenge should be completed by now.

Having two big challenges running at the same time is always better for the one who's involved in both. Just as we can see he is winning one and losing the other which means that if it ended today he would only be losing half of what he was up to. And the one durrrr is behind is also the one in which he still have more chances to turn things around in his side. But ut seems to be taking way too much tume to be done wgich only puts pressure on his opponents. Nice playwd for durrrr!

Lucky for the aversion to successfully complete the challenge but it looks difficult.
