durrrr Challenge: Dwan's lead dwindles


After over two months without a single hand played, the durrrr Challenge came back online last night for a 795 hand session.

It was Tom Dwan if he was up for some Challenge action. With martonas nowhere in sight, Dwan gladly accepted and took his reserved seats on the challenge tables.

The session lasted two and a half hours with $7,458,541 wagered across the four tables. In the end it was Antonius who came out on top, up nearly $400k.

The session was almost entirely one-sided. Dwan managed to win only one large pot worth over $223k. For Dwan, the session was a nightmare. His draws failed to hit, his hands failed to hold and his bluffs got snapped off without pause.

After the session saw its last hand dealt, Dwan's lead in the Challenge had dwindled to slightly over $334k.

Hopefully this short session is just a preview of some longer sessions to come. If the two continue to play as infrequently as they have, they're on pace to finish the challenge sometime around April of next year.
