To be clear, this is a long standing dispute between the two players spanning more than a decade.

Coates is referencing the so-called Durrrr Challenge match between Dwan and Cates that took place over ten years ago.

With a $1.5million sidebet on the line, the notorious Black Friday online poker indictments resulted in a sort of "back out" clause for Dwan.

The match was never concluded.

“He’s been paying me penalties every two months lately,” Cates revealed a few years back, adding: “He wants me to point out he’s given me something like $700,000 or $800,000 basically in penalties since 2010.”
