durrrr Challenge: The pseudo session
With the WSOP in full swing, no one expected to see any action come out of the durrrr Challenge.
They were wrong … sort of.
Although the two famous contestants in the durrrr million-dollar challenge did sit for a session last night, it lasted for only a little over 200 hands.
The hour-long session did however see Tom Dwan start to climb out of his hole, winning just over $36k.
Unfortunately for Dwan and his fans around the world, he still needs to win another $415k just to break even.
On the bright side, the challenge is far from over - especially if the players refuse to play more than an hour a week - and Dwan has almost 35,000 hands left to get even.
In fact, if both Dwan and Antonius continue to play a maximum of 200 hands (one hour) a week, the challenge should conclude around February 2013.
The largest hand of last night's mini-session, worth just over $88k, went to Antonius after his 7♣ 5♠ 8♠ 6♦ flopped the nut straight on a 4♠ 5♥ 7♦ board.
Dwan, having flopped two pair, was all too willing to call off a large chunk of his stack, donating it to Antonius after failing to hit a miracle card on the turn or river.
