durrrr Challenge: Good news and bad

Tom Dwan

The good news for Tom "durrrr" Dwan was he won $26k in the latest session of the durrrr Challenge last night. The bad news was he lost over $860,000 on other tables.

The latest durrrr Challenge session was anti-climatic at best, with a little over $37 million wagered in 458 hands and a $26k win for Dwan that was barely worth writing home about.

The win does put Dwan down a little over $39k for the challenge, which is now 46% complete.

However, the real high-stakes action came on the $300/$600 Pot-Limit Omaha and $500/$1,000 No-Limit Hold'em tables last night.

Although other players came and went during the session, Dwan has Di "Urindanger" Dang to thank for the majority of his losses.

Unlike many sessions which have one or two massive pots, most of Dwan's losses were recorded in pots worth less than $100k. Apparently, no matter how hard he tried, he just couldn't win a hand.

Dwan appears to be a player who doesn't take losing well and chances are you will see him going full throttle at the tables again tonight.
