‘durrrr Challenge': Tom Dwan wins $96,000 in just an hour

Posted on 14 May 2009 by "T".
After 13,000 played hands Patrik Antonius had taken a big lead with almost 500,000 US dollars ahead of his opponent Tom Dwan. Now, 556 hands later, the lead is "only" $391,704 for Antonius. But if Tom Dwan can win almost $100,000 in just an hour, he can probably take back his big loss in just a few sessions?

The 2nd hand is played real well in my opinion, the first hand was a panic move and he lucked out with 20 outs to loose.

I dont think dwan made a panic move on the first hand... call out of position wins less pots than a check raise and with overpair + gutshot + flush draw + the small chance he can still be ahead on the flop, i think it makes it a better play. I would do it if i had that kind of money Tongue

I smell a comeback. Tom Dwan is a great player and I have no doubt he will come bak and win.

I dont think hes gonna win! The advantage is big and tom durrrr dwan is very aggressive the trend will be to patrick antonius increase his advantage. I think this session was an exception!

This is not very big amount of money in those stakes...There are higher pots very often if you watch Ziigmund play. Tongue

Ya, I'm surprised the match is this close. I was anticipating millions won or lost and one of them buying out of the challenge. I guess this is still a lot of hands to be played.

What did i said last time? I believe Dwan can still be in the race,there is many hands to play, but i can be a big pile of money to loose either! Following a competition makes me crazy, thinking in the possibilities i have if i ever play this game really good Big Smile

I've been watching the latest episodes of poker after dark and I really believe now that Dwan is more of a lucky donk than a brilliant player. he raises EVERY single hand, no matter what the cards, and seems to always hit the flop or at least get a great draw. Tha man just cannot fold, but always gets lucky. Sure, his aggression is fearless and it works well for him, but I just wish I had his luck, i might play much higher stakes myself if I did!

They play 4 tables at a time. But the session was less than 550 hands. More like 250-300.

That is the point. He puts a lot of pressure on his opponents. And most of the time they are playing quite deep. So those moves are even more powerfull.
