durrrr: Blame it on the Alcohol!
Don't blame Matt Marafioti if he looks a little under the weather today - blame durrrr. Late Monday night at the Main Event of the 2009 Tom Dwan got into a little bit of the old propbetaments. durrrr bet Marafioti (he's "ADZ" online) $5,000 that Marafioti couldn't drink ten shots of Patron tequila in fifteen minutes. Marafioti took up the challenge, and with Dwan's assurance to the tournament director of a $5k charitable donation should ADZ happen to spew in the tournament area, the shots were delivered and the game was afoot. ADZ downed the shots in ample time and durrrr paid his debt with a $5k Bellagio marker. But it didn't end there. The shots made Marafioti a bit drunk and thus a bit rowdy and within a few minutes he'd incurred a penalty for swearing. It was enough to convince him to call it a night. He left his 56k on the table in the Miranda Room and headed off into the night, his safety assured by Dwan, who'd paid the tournament director a couple bills to ensure his rival got home alright. Rumor has it, however, that ADZ spent the night in a bathtub at Bellagio, puking up his ever-loving guts. But he's back for Day 2b and so is durrrr. Both players have been seated near each other in the Brasilia Room for the early levels, so stay tuned for a potential rematch.
