Is the once highly touted-turned tired Durrrr Challenge still going?

What started with a bang has ended with a whimper.  Well, not exactly, since it hasn't officially ended yet.  One was hard pressed to understand why.

Nicole Gordon of Poker News writes: "With only three weeks to go before the first anniversary of the "durrrr" Challenge (yes, it's really been running that long) prospects look grim for these two (Tom "Durrrr" Dwan and Patrik Antonius) finishing their match before the one-year mark hits. So, gentlemen, how do you feel about setting your inner degenerates free and playing out the rest at the Rush Poker tables?"

There was a break from the Durrrr Challenge of 36 days before Dwan and Antonius faced off again on Thursday for 1,256 hands of $200/$400 pot-limit Omaha.

After playing for just over four hours, Dwan managed to overcome an early deficit to finish $58,781 to the good, expanding his overall challenge lead over Antonius to $878,490, PokerNews.com reported.
