Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Dan "Jungleman12" Cates got back to the grind Monday night, logging a lengthy durrrr Challenge session.

This first durrrr Challenge session of the New Year lasted roughly six hours with the two combatants playing 2,918 hands of heads-up No-Limit Hold'em at $200/$400 stakes.

Dwan had been in the midst of a comeback the past few challenge sessions, but all that was erased last night with Cates posting a $319,103.50 win.

He now sits $819,213.50 up with a little over 17k hands in the books.

The two traded several big pots last night, including the largest of the challenge so far at $216,505.50, which Cates won with a flush-over-flush.

With almost one-third of the 50,000 challenge hands now in the books, Cates continues to look like a favorite to win his $500k bet at 3:1 odds.
