Dan “jungleman12” Cates continued to pound Tom Dwan in the durrrr Challenge 2 last night.

This time around Cates was able to rake $110k from the Team Full Tilt pro in 346 hands of $200/$400 No-Limit Hold’em.

Dwan had been slowly clawing his way out of the hole with several small victories but last night’s session essentially erased all his work.

Cates had the fortune of pulling in two pots worth over $50k each, which helped tip the scales in his favor.

The entire session took less than an hour and Dwan implied that he had been playing for over 15 hours when he finally called it a night.

In other high stakes online news last night, Gus Hansen managed to put in an impressive performance winning $172k in the $300/$600 Six-Max PLO games. Despite some positive steps over the last few weeks, Hansen is still down $1.4 million on the year.

FinnishNightmre (+$115k), luckexpress10 (+$71k), ronnyr37617 (+$67k) were also amongst the biggest winners last night.

Meanwhile gamblegambel (-$229k), DrugsOrMe (-$137k), OMGClayAiken (-$75k), Sauce1234 (-$71k) and David Benefield (-$54k) were all in the losing column.

Patrick Antonius needs to man up and finish what he started. It's obvious he's avoiding Durr so he doesn't have to finish the Challenge.
