The "durrrr" Challenge: Micro-Session Yields $22,000 Gain for Dwan

The "durrrr" Challenge: Micro-Session Yields $22,000 Gain for Dwan 0001

Late Saturday night, Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Patrik Antonius played a blink-and-you'll-miss-it session of the "durrrr" Challenge spanning only 79 hands. After four-tabling for only 16 minutes, Dwan came away a winner, adding $21,790 to his lead, which now stands at $1,414,551 after 32,874 hands.

There were very few pots of note played in this short match, the largest coming in at $64,800. Dwan opened for $1,200 on the button and Antonius made the call. The flop came down {J-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{4-Spades} and Antonius led at the pot for $2,400. Dwan called, and the {2-Spades} hit the turn. Antonius fired again, betting $7,200 and Dwan called. The river was the {9-Diamonds}, missing both flush draws on the board but putting a possible straight out there. Antonius made another pot-sized bet, putting out $21,600 only to watch Dwan move all-in for $30,598. Antonius had to be on a pure bluff on the river, as he decided not to call the additional $8,998 and folded his hand, conceding the pot to Dwan. Their hole cards? We'll never know.
