Durrrr Challenge number one - Tom Dwan vs. Patrik Antonius

"durrrr" Challenge 1:

Tom "durrrr" Dwan vs Patrik Antonius

Leader: Tom "durrrr" Dwan

Up by: $2,059,719.50

Total Hands Played: 39,436

Total Hands Remaining: 10,564

Challenge Started: February 2009

The Challenge: in January of 2009, Tom "durrrr" Dwan issued his "challenge" to the poker world (well, the poker world minus Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond).

The purpose of Dwan's challenge? To generate some action by offering potential opponents an offer that they couldn't refuse. Many players were avoiding Tom "durrrr" Dwan, especially in heads up games, so "durrrr" had to sweeten the pot.

The Terms: any opponent who chose to accept the "durrrr Challenge" had to agree to these terms:

-minimum of 4 tables played simultaneously
-minimum of 50,000 hands
-$200/$400 blinds minimum
-Dwan's opponent could choose the game (either No Limit Hold'em or Pot Limit Omaha)
-any player who drops below 75 BBs must reload

If Tom "durrrr" Dwan is up $1 or more after rake after the 50,000 hands have been completed, then Dwan's opponent will have to pay Dwan $500,000, in addition to anything that was won during the course of the challenge.

If Dwan's opponent is up $1 ore more after rake after the 50,000 hands have been completed, then Dwan will have to pay his opponent $1.5 million, in addition to anything that was won during the course of the challenge.

"durrrr" Challenge Notes:

-the first "durrrr" Challenge was apparently accepted by Patrik Antonius, David Benyamine and Phil Ivey

-the "durrrr" Challenge is open to anybody except for Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond



"durrrr" Challenge Player Profiles:

Tom "durrrr" Dwan

"...when you think of the top poker players in the world, who pops into your mind? Phil Ivey? Doyle Brunson? Patrik Antonius? If Tom Dwan doesn't immediately jump into your mind, then it should..."

Patrik Antonius

"...Patrik Antonius took a different route however, deciding that he now had the bankroll to compete in some of the largest cash games in the world..."

Daniel "jungleman12" Cates

"...jungleman12 got his start by playing $5/$10 SNGs. Eventually Cates made the switch to $0.25/$0.50 NLHE, and found that he was especially strong in HU games. Within a year, jungleman12 had moved up to $10/$20 and was doing extremely well for himself..."
