durrrr Challenge 2: Dwan Strikes Again
Don’t call it a comeback but Tom “durrrr” Dwan is starting to close the gap in his challenge against on Dan “jungleman12” Cates.
Dwan and Cates hit the $200/$400 No-Limit Hold’em tables last night and burned through 1,214 hands in a couple hours.
It was a wild session that saw numerous pots over $100k get thrown back and forth and at one point Dwan was ahead by $354k, dangerously close to getting even in the overall challenge.
Fortunately for jungleman12 he mounted a serious comeback and won the biggest pot of the session when he turned a straight against Dwan’s turned two-pair. Cates got his chips in the middle and ended up winning the $210k monster pot.
Near the end of the session Dwan’s internet cut out in a hand where he held the nut-flush against jungleman12’s two-pair.
Dwan was forced to check it down and felt that he missed a major opportunity causing some fireworks between the two opponents in the chatbox. Initially durrrr lamented his bad fortune, then this happened:
“jungleman12: i thought it was pretty cool”
“durrrr: nice douchebag comment ty”
“jungleman12: joking obv”
“durrrr: pretty off timing”
“durrrr: to joke”
When the session finally ended Dwan found himself up $63,362, which helps alleviate his losses in the overall challenge to $503k.
Other than the durrrr Challenge 2 it was a slow night for high stakes online action. ShutTheClubDown was the night’s biggest winner taking down $119k. IReadYrSoul won $31k and Gus Hansen took down $18k putting them in the top five.
ORLOVSKIY was the biggest loser dropping $76k. luckexpress10 (-$43k), O Fortuna PLS (-$31k) and Ziigmund (-$23k) were also in the losing column.
