After a long break away from the durrr challenge, Patrik Antonius and Tom Dwan have now played 2 sessions within 24 hours. Before the first one started, Tom Dwan, had a big lead with over $700,000 won from Antonius, but the Finnish poker pro took back $392,000 from Tom Dwan after they had played 795 hands and decided to stop for the day. Just a couple of hours later they decided to play another session of the "durrr" challenge.

Before this session started, Tom "durrrr" Dwan, was in the lead with $334,199. But once again Patrik Antonius played his very best of poker and this time he won $415,311 from Tom Dwan. Patrik Antonius, is now in the lead with $76,104 over Tom Dwan after 22 683 hands played. It will be very interesting to see if Tom Dwan will manage to fight back in the next session against Antonius.

PA is really showing his best poker at durrr chalenge. He changes tactics so durrr cant read him so well, and the results are coming to his side. Its impossible to say who is going to come out winner at hand 50.000.

this challenge will take around 1 month to finish at this rate, but its turning out to be pretty interesting competition.
PA has a slender lead but i don't think it will last long

1 month? This challenge has been going on for at least 3 months and only~50% of hands have been played. So obv it will take at least another 3 months or longer to complete. Big Smile

This challenge will probably never finish ... it will finish soon when durrr is broke !

He may be down in the challenge, but managed to be up overall. So there is little chance he will be broke during this thing.

But they shouldn't make a second gap of two month. Aww crap!

22K of 50K hands? Will this be over during 2009?
How the hell is he starting a new challenge with the first one only near the middle?

Does going broke finishes this "soap opera"?

It would be fun to watch durrr falling into micro stakes to build a bankroll to pay the 1.5M bet to Patrik.
