durrrr Challenge: Dwan crushes in epic session


After a marathon 15-hour session last night, the durrrr Challenge is finally nearing the halfway mark with the suddenly red-hot Tom Dwan now up over $726k.

Dwan, once down over $640,000, has made a staggering comeback over the last two sessions and now hold's the challenge's biggest lead either way.

The amount of his lead isn't the only record this latest session broke either. This session alone saw:

  • 43 pots worth over $100k.
  • 13 pots worth over $200k.
  • The largest pot (won by Antonius): $477,556.
  • The largest stack on a single table (Dwan): $928,451.
  • Over $5 million wagered.
  • Over 15 hours of continuous play.
  • 4,523 total hands.

Even with Antonius winning the largest pot of the session (and challenge), durrr still managed to make $764,000 profit - mostly thanks to winning seven of the 10 largest pots overall.
