durrrr Challenge: Antonius crushes for $140,000

Patrik Antonius

After finally regaining the lead in the durrrr Challenge, Tom Dwan has once again given it back to Patrik Antonius.

It's been a busy weekend for the high-stakes poker players as Antonius and Dwan played big sessions on Thursday and Friday and then added another one last night.

Dwan and Antonius made it through a total of 966 hands yesterday and Antonius was the big winner with $140,000 to his name for the session. That means the Finn is now ahead of Dwan by $61,412 in the challenge.

Things started slowly in the session for Dwan and then got worse as he took several significant beats.

In one of the ugliest hands of the session, Dwan held Q Q T 9 to Antonius' 7 2 6 4. After the flop of J 8 3 Dwan was an incredible 92% favorite. Dwan bet, Antonius called and the turn came 5.
