A new variant of the "durrrr challenge"

Posted on 12 August 2009 by "K".

Ever heard of the "durrrr challenge"? For those who haven't,  or simply need to be reminded we can inform that it was the american high stakes pro, Tom "durrrr" Dwan, who challenged any player in the world to play 50,000 hands in the games NL Holdem/PL Omaha with the minimum stakes $200/$400 at Full Tilt poker.

If Tom Dwan won his own challenge, the opponent would have to give him $500,000. But if Tom Dwan lost, then he will give the other player $1,500,000. Sometime after the announcement of the "durrrr challenge" (a few months back in time), Patrik Antonius, the Finnish poker pro, accepted the challenge. According to the last update, Tom Dwan, is in the lead after 20,647 hands with $727,526.5.

The new variant of the "durrrr challenge" will be played live in London. Tom Dwan will play 4 heads-up (minimum 500 hands must be played before a player is allowed to leave the table) matches versus anyone that can pay the buy-in of $500,000. The only player confirmed so far for this new challenge is the English businessmen, Sammy "Any Two" George. Sammy George is known to be a fearless player at the highest stakes. But as we all know, Tom Dwan, is one of the best high stakes players in the world, and he's not afraid of playing anyone at any stakes. This challenge will be very, very interesting to follow.

durrrr's challenge is pretty much dead, it like 2 month since they last played

emglish businessman against durrrr, lol. durrrr will surely beat him easily. durrrr is always doing something interesting, this will be really fun, but we have to wait for three more to join.

I've seen sammy " any two " play on UK TV.

He does play any two like Durrrr does but in a very bad way unlike Durrrr. This match up is sure to be a very one sided affair unless Sammy gets very lucky.

Durrrr would happily play this donk for eternity.

I cant stand that "durrr" guy, and the main reasons are all these challenges he has started and will probably never finish ... i said a long time ago that the antonius challenge will never finish . Fuk him

Does anyone knows when will this new challenge start? Should be great to follow up, although i think its like having me against Cristiano Ronaldo in front of Edwin van der Sar to see who can score more goals from penalty mark.

durr shoul finish a challenge before he starts the next, i guess he is looking for attention. well this challenge is definitly more interesting than the old one

If he continues to run like this week, this is an option. Down close to 2 million in the last 7 days. Shock

Have seen Sammy "any two" playing in the poker den III. This guy is such a fish. Should be no problem for durrrr to win big against him.

Perhaps some find his challenges a bit ennoying, but his style of play is so entertaining.

He probably isn't the best allround pokerplayer, but in heads-up he might just be the best. At least he likes to think so himself.
 HoldSoTight20/08/2009 10:18:55 GMT
watching sammy any two in the poker den also, i can fairly say he will be wiped out by dwan, never seen such a bad player play there.

Saying that it would be very entertaining to watch
