Tom "durrrr" Dwan wins $500k
With the durrrr Challenge on hiatus, durrrr was able to destroy Ziigmund in some nosebleed-level pots.
One of the informal rules of the durrrr challenge is that any challenge play will be postponed in lieu of good $500/$1,000 action happening on Full Tilt.
Yesterday, Patrik Antonius and Tom "durrrr" Dwan had a conversation that in part went like this:
Patrik Antonius: tom lets play tomorrow around same time?
durrrr: ya sounds good, long as theres not a ton of 500/1k
durrrr: i obv would rather 4 tbl 500/1
Patrik Antonius: deal
When Tom "durrrr" Dwan was alive and ready to play, he made the call to sit $500/$1,000, putting off the challenge for another day.
Dwan then stayed up all night playing four tables of $500/$1,000. He was playing three-handed with Ziigmund and Patrik Antonius on some of these tables, while he played heads-up PLO with Ziigmund on the others.
The night went well for durrrr - he took $500,000 off Ziigmund alone. Ziigmund took such a big hit that he got Dwan to loan him $300k so he could keep playing. Dwan played as long as he could until he had to retire to sleep.
Before durrrr logged off for the night he asked Antonius:
durrrr: if no games tomorrow, abt 5-6am my time wanna play
Situated in Boston, Mass., Dwan is on Eastern time, meaning the challenge should be starting back up any minute now (as it's 5:05am ET). We'll keep you posted on any updates, and as always we'll have replays of the largest online pots of the day.
Here is the largest pot of the day, where durrrr brutalizes Ziigmund for a whopping $500k.
