The so-called Durrrr Challenge will move to the next stage as Tom Durrrr Dwan is set to take on Daniel “Jungleman12” Cates.


As everyone knows, Dwan has been involved with Patrik Antonius in a challenge that is now over 18 months along. The matchup has lasted so long that not many people really care anymore. In fact, in a poll conducted on, over ¾ of the responders selected the responses “Snoozefest, wake me up when it’s over,” when asked if the Durrrr Challenge is a letdown. Do to a myriad of reasons, including conflicting schedules and time differences, the two just are never playing at the same time and have not matched up since August 3rd. With Cates, this seems to not be a problem as the CardRunner instructor is seemingly always playing against Dwan and it is believed this challenge could be done in about 2 weeks once it starts.

A half million dollars has been put towards the Challenge by Cates, according to

“Should the challenge begin soon and move quickly, perhaps online followers will get more into this version of the challenge,” commented.  “For everyone’s sakes, we hope this to be the case.”
