Durrrr Challenge 2

If you thought the initial Durrrr Challenge was dragging on a little too long, the Durrrr Challenge 2 is taking seemingly as long.  This is an online high stakes poker challenge initiated by popular Internet player Tom “Durrrr” Dwan. 

This go around, Dwan is taking on another bigwig in the world of online poker Dan “JungleMan12” Cates. Cates was up $659,000 after 7,660 hands played.

The long delays were mostly a result of the World Series of Poker Europe and Dwan’s high roller poker activity in the Chinese gambling Mecca of Macau. 

From OnlinePoker.net:

Dwan is back from his mega successful time in Macau and the duo yesterday got stuck into another session of their $200/$400 Heads-Up No Limit Hold’em challenge.

In total, 2120 hands were played in their latest encounter with Tom Dwan booking a win, albeit a small one of $13,000. However, things were a lot more exciting than the final tally indicates as both players held reasonable leads during the heads-up battle.

Jungleman12 initially held a $212K advantage after 467 hands, but Dwan managed to fight back to lead $91K after 1913 hands, eventually booking a $13,000 win.

The biggest pot on the night was worth $128,371 and won by Dwan after he was dealt 6h-3s to Cate’s pocket K’s. With a flop of 3-6-6 bringing Dwan a full house, he proceeded to check call Cate’s bets on each street, who eventually put in his last $39,785 on the river to lose the giant pot.

The second biggest pot of the night also went to Dwan after findings himself with Aces to his opponent’s Kings. Eventually all the money went into the centre on the turn with Dwan then scooping the $105,168 pot.

Though he may be a highly successful online poker player, Dwan’s success has not necessarily transferred to the live poker circuit where he only has just over a million in total winnings since 2005.  He has two second place finishes but has never won a live tournament.  Durrrr only has 14 cashes over this period of time as well.
