durrrr Challenge: Dwan implodes against Antonius

Patrik Antonius, Tom Dwan

Tom Dwan was up over $250,000 on Patrik Antonius in the latest session of the durrrr Challenge - and then promptly lost it all and more.

It was session 10 of the durrrr Challenge, and Dwan raced to the early lead.

Although they only played for 460 hands, Dwan looked like he would make the most of it as he raked several pots worth nearly $100,000.

It all started to go badly for Dwan when he flopped the nut flush against Antonius only to have his opponent go all-in with a set of nines that eventually improved to a full boat.

That's a scary spike.

Dwan was understandably tilted, and it didn't take much longer for him to give up on the session. He typed this in the chatbox:

"durrrr: i think im done for now
durrrr: too tilted
Patrik Antonius: k"

By the end of the session Antonius had logged a profit of $92,000.

Dwan was extraordinarily busy last night. In addition to the match against Antonius he found time to lose a $320,000 pot against Ziigmund, a $265,629 pot against Phil Ivey and even some big pots against Gus Hansen.

Not a great night for the New Jersey wonder kid.
