Another session, as a part of the durrrr challenge, between Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Daniel "Jungleman12" Cates was played the other day at Full Tilt. The session (15) lasted for about 6 hours and they manage to play 2900 hands, which means that more than 17,000 of 50,000 hands have been played.
Anyhow, it was Daniel Cates, the biggest winner online last year, who dominated this session and took $318,000 from Tom Dwan. This means that Daniel Cates increased his lead to $819,213.
Tom Dwan's blog has been quite dead in the past 3 months. However, he made a bigger update of his blog a few days ago. In this blog post Dwan writes about what he has been up to in the past couple of weeks - filming for Poker After Dark, a wedding, halloween, being sick, lots of traveling etc. The most interesting reading, however, is what he had to say about the 2 challenges against Patrik Antonius and jungleman.
"I have 2 challenges open, both of which havent had much play in the last few weeks. I was busy with wsope, then traveling a bunch- but in the next few days/weeks i should be putting in a ton of hands with jungleman. With regards to the patrik challenge, i want to clear up the thought that he's stalling or doesn't want to pay if he loses or something like that. Patrik and i talk a lot and he's definitely done nothing wrong by me in the slightest. I don't know if we'll be finishing soon but hopefully we will, and sorry to the people watching that challenge that its gone on for so long."
Even though the durrr challenge between Tom Dwan (picture) and Patrik Antonius is still going on and never seems to end, Tom "durrrr" Dwan still wants to get another one going. Rumors saying that Tom "durrrr" Dwan is trying to get another challenge going has been circulating on the web for some time now. Many of these rumors claims that Tom Dwan has challenged jungleman12 (successful high stakes player - true identity currently not known) numerous times but never got any positive feedback.
However, now it seems seems like jungleman12 will accepted the challenge. During a small $100/$200 NLH game, durrrr proposed the challenge to jungleman12 in the chat and it seems like jungleman12 is considering to accept.
