durrrr Challenge: Antonius hits back

Patrik Antonius

After 2,921 hands Tom Dwan in the durrrr Challenge.

Yesterday Antonius and Dwan actually played two sessions between the hours of 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. ET with a large break in the middle.

Although Dwan once again started well, the table started to tilt toward Antonius as the day wore on. By about 9 p.m. Antonius had won $227,000, which gives him the overall lead by $56,177.

At approximately 9:06 this conversation occurred in the Full Tilt chatbox:
