durrrr-mageddon! Four tables appear on Full Tilt

Patrik Antonius

Yesterday at approximately 4 p.m. PST, four durrrr Challenge tables appeared on Tom Dwan issued the "durrrr Challenge" in January, which gave 3-1 odds on a $1.5 million wager that he would be the overall winner heads-up against anyone over the span of 50,000 hands.

The rules were that it had to be playing four tables at the same time, minimum $200/$400 stakes, and that it wasn't open to Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond.

Despite Dwan's stature as an absolute animal at high-stakes online poker, there were those who simply couldn't resist the odds and the challenge. Among the players rumored to have taken Dwan up on the offer were David Benyamine, Phil Ivey and Patrik Antonius.


Antonius was slated to play first, and the two scheduled their games to start sometime in February. Two days ago Antonius appeared ready to play, but Dwan said he was tired and the game was postponed.

Many in the online community were starting to get impatient, and several members of the 2+2 poker forum even suggested it wasn't going to happen.

The people at Full Tilt Poker obviously have a different opinion, as the tables showed up in the lobby of the popular poker room last night.

The entire poker world is now waiting with bated breath as the two uber poker ballers have yet to make an appearance at their reserved tables.

PokerListings.com will be offering exclusive coverage of the epic event with complete hand histories, detailed win/loss results and a daily recap.

The only question is - will the online poker world ever be the same?
