durrrr Challenge: 61 Hands and $230k

Tom Dwan

The latest session of the durrrr Challenge lasted just nine minutes on Friday but resulted in Tom Dwan adding over $230k to his already substantial lead.

When it comes to online poker results, Patrik Antonius is having the worst year of his life.

The 61-hand Challenge session came early on Friday night and became just the first hit Antonius would have to take before the weekend ran its course.

Much like the previous durrrr Challenge session, this one ended with Antonius losing a $184k pot and being felted him on one of the four tables.

Just like the previous session, Antonius chose not to re-load on the busted table, forcing an early end to the match.

The pot itself saw both players get it all in on the turn, with Dwan having flopped the nut straight. Antonius had a pair, a worse straight draw and two flush draws, but needless to say, the flush draws failed to come through on the river.

Although this session added $230,710 to Dwan's lead, putting him up just under $2 million, it did little to further the progress of the challenge itself with still over 16,000 hands left to play.
