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

Tags: durrrr Challenge, patrik antonius, tom dwan.
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?

Two of the most interesting hands played between Patrik Antonius and Tom Dwan from the last 556 hands played.

HAND 1:
Antonius raise to $1,200, Dwan reraised to $3,600. Antonius then reraised again to $6,000 which Dwan called.

FLOP 8Heart5Club2Heart

Dwan was first out to act and he checked. Antonius bets $10,000 and Dwan then raise to $42,000. Antonius then made it $74,000, trying to set Dwan all-in for his last $23,199. Dwan throws in his last money and both of them are now all-in.

Dwan shows QClubQHeart9Heart6Club for a pair of queens with flush draw
Antonius shows KClub8Spade7Club5Spade for 2 pair.

TURN comes 4Spade, river 9Spade. Antonius takes home the pot with his 2 pair.

HAND 2:
Dwan has ASpadeAClub10Spade3Heart and opens with a raise of $3,600. Antonius calls.

FLOP COMES JSpade7Club6Spade - Dwan bets $4,800 with his overpair and nut flush draw. Antonius calls straight away.

TURN 9Diamond - Dwan checks and Antonius bets $14,400 which Dwan calls after a moment of thinking.

RIVER kSpade - Dwan gets the nut flush and bets $37,200. Antonius thinks for a long time before he decides to call. Dwan takes home the pot of $120,000 and Antonius mucks his hand.

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.

GL may the best pro win Big Smile durr was playing good poker against antonius last time so it will be interesting to see how it will turn out...

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

Yep. First hand is a standard Omaha coinflip.

I smell a comeback. Tom Dwan is a great player and I have no doubt he will come bak and win.
 Jodoli14/05/2009 23:54:22 GMT
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!

Some good play for a nice sum of money boys keep it up Tongue
 xxxbchxxx15/05/2009 03:41:57 GMT
Wow to win such an amount in such a short time ... what play you got to be with the poker gods to level your cash so easy....
one day i could be a subject on a forum just like this ha ha ha ha ha
 ifp15/05/2009 07:02:04 GMT
This is not very big amount of money in those stakes...There are higher pots very often if you watch Ziigmund play. Tongue
 GeneYuss15/05/2009 11:45:25 GMT
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.
 Fakiry15/05/2009 15:24:57 GMT
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
 Bizla16/05/2009 15:21:01 GMT
Dwan lost atleast 500k to ziigmund last night

556 hands in 1 hour?":O Does it really say that or am i just begin stupid? Tongue
 KG197516/05/2009 18:37:22 GMT
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.
 Dellbo9917/05/2009 00:40:54 GMT
Anyone who thinks Durrrr is a donk is one themselves
 jozephius19/05/2009 19:34:19 GMT
