Tom "durrrr" Dwan vs Daniel "jungleman12" Cates Challenge To Start Soon

King spinning the ball on his fingerThe second "durrrr Challenge" (Tom "durrrr" Dwan vs Daniel "jungleman12" Cates) is set to get underway over the next couple of days.

The first "durrrr Challenge" between Dwan and Patrik Antonius has not been completed as of yet, but given how rarely the two play, I don't think that "durrrr" will have any troubles handling two challenges at once.

The second "durrrr Challenge" became official yesterday after this chat occurred between the two participants on FTP:

durrrr: did u send ivey $$ yet?
jungleman12: not yet
jungleman12: ill send now
jungleman12: how soon is soon?
durrrr: read ur phone...
jungleman12: ah i see
durrrr: few days at most
durrrr: did u send yet?
jungleman12: yeah
jungleman12: sent
durrrr: then i can start talking &&%%
durrrr: since we're booked
jungleman12: ?
durrrr: and say that its cute u think u'll ever have an edge =)
jungleman12: lol
jungleman12: you never seemed like the type
durrrr: never wanna scare off the fish =)
durrrr: but if they escrow....
durrrr: haha ok
durrrr: lmk if u wanna play if not we'll start in a few days
durrrr: gl n stuff
jungleman12: u2


In case you are wondering why Phil Ivey's name is being mentioned here - he is acting as escrow and will hold the money ($500k from "jungleman12", $1.5 million from "durrrr") until the challenge has been completed.


While the first "durrrr Challenge" has dragged on and on (1 1/2 years and counting if you can believe it), the second "durrrr Challenge" should be finished in a fraction of the time. As a matter of fact, I wouldn't be surprised if it were done by the time that the WSOPE gets under way in mid September. I don't think that we'll see too many sessions where one of the players quits after 50 hands (see first "durrrr Challenge"). I would expect that "durrrr" and "jungleman12" will play the required 50k hands fairly quickly..

"durrrr" or "jungleman12" - who you got?
