Durrrr Challenge Resumes, Bttech86/Isildur1 Rages On
It was a busy weekend of high-stakes action as the two hottest rivalries in online poker re-ignited in several blistering sessions.
Viktor “Isildur1” Blom and Ben “Bttech86” Tollerene played several long heads-up matches, which shouldn’t really come as a surprise considering how frequently they’ve been playing, but Tom “durrrr” Dwan and Dan “jungleman12” Cates also chipped in another 900 hands in the never-ending durrrr Challenge II.
Tollerene was coming of a big $700k loss to Isildur1 earlier in the week so he played a furious game on Saturday that eventually saw him smoke the young Swede for nearly $400k at $500/$1,000 CAP PLO on Full Tilt.
Interestingly Tollerene also played a little $500/$1,000 CAP PLO against durrrr on Saturday but ended up losing $140k.
Isildur1 and Tollerene resumed play on Sunday and ripped through over 1,000 hands of PLO.
This time it was Isildur1 with the hammer and he ended up crushing Tollerene for $880k, according to highstakesdb.com. That put Tollerene down approximately $480k against Isildur1 over the weekend.
Dwan Wins $92k From Cates in durrrr Challenge
Tom Dwan and Dan Cates also resumed their challenge after another extended break.
For the second straight session it was Dwan who finished with a victory, this time for $92k.
Dwan picked up $158k in the only other session they’ve played since Full Tilt Poker re-launched last fall.
durrrr hasn’t been posting huge wins but he is slowly chipping away at the $1.1 million lead Cates had, prior to last night’s session.
Even better news for Dwan is that he seems to be finding his online game, after struggling since Black Friday. He won over $300k this weekend.
Also of note is that Phil “Polarizing” Ivey picked up $280,400 in the high-stakes games on Full Tilt this weekend.
