Tom “durrrr” Dwan and Patrik Antonius played six hours yesterday adding another 1,601 hands to the now 78% complete durrrr challenge.

The latest session was brimming with action including a dozen pots worth over $200k hitting the books.

The largest pot of the Challenge session, worth $367,166, went to Dwan after he flopped top-set with kings. Antonius committed his stack after hitting two-pair on the turn.

Despite the massive action, and multiple pots worth over $300k, Dwan was only able to make it out of the session up $37,250.

He actually began this session of the Challenge while playing Cole South heads-up at $200/$400 Pot-Limit Omaha, playing as many as seven tables of heads-up poker at the same time.

Dwan managed to take over $155k from the ex-CardRunners pro, bringing him up to a total profit of $192,989 on the day.

After yesterday's 1,601 hands, the Challenge has only 11,026 hands left to go. Assuming the average session for the rest of the challenge lasts just 1,000 hands, Antonius would have to make $137k per session to close the $1.5 million dollar gap.

At present, there is a discrepancy between some of the numbers provided by PokerListings own durrrr Challenge tracking software and those that appear on Full Tilt's website for last night's session.

According to Full Tilt, the two played just 83 hands with Patrik Antonius booking a $335,802 win in just 23 minutes.

If the PokerListings numbers are proven to be inaccurate, we'll be sure to let you know.
