They started the challenge Wednesday morning and played for nearly 5 hours (292 minutes). They played 4 tables of Omaha PL $200/$400, a total of 1541 hands played and durrr up 134K at the end.
The biggest hand they played was a $148k pot. Durrr flopped a set of 10s where Antonius flopped a wrap, open ended straight draw with a gut shot. Antonius missed his straight draws and Durrr won the $148k pot.
Full Tilt created 8 PLO tables just for this challenge. Why 8 tables you ask? So when one of their stakes gets too high they can move to the next table to drop back to 100BB each ($40K). We've heard 275BB and 250BB as being the amount they want to stay under.
Here is what Patrik Antonius had to say before the match
''Playing four heads-up tables will be tough, especially at pot-limit Omaha. PLO is a game of good calls, good value bets and good bluffs; you have a lot of tough decisions on the turn and river, that's for sure, so I will need plenty of focus. Thankfully I have played so many hands of PLO that I am able to respond to situations a bit quicker and I tend to take the same amount of time for every decision, so I do not give off any timing tells. Every now and then you get a hand where you have to use the time bank but Tom usually takes quite a bit of time to act, too, so we will play at the same pace." Patrik continued, "I've done quite well against durrrr playing two or three simultaneous tables, so I am pretty confident, although that fourth table does make a difference and how I adapt to that is the key. He has much more experience at playing four or more heads-up tables at the highest stakes; his brain seems to be programmed much better for that kind of thing.''
