The Durrrr Challenge is back

Tags: durr challenge, patrick antonius, Tom Dwan.
Posted on Thursday, March 05, 2009 by "M".

A couple of days ago there was a little action in the durrrr Challenge again but Patrick Antonius and Tom "durrrr" Dwan only managed to play 226 hands before they stopped playing. After these 226 hands Antonius managed to make a $9.5K profit which means that he is now a little over $140K down in total. But the swings that we see in this challenge is really amazing so surely he will be able to turn it around again.

The biggest pot of the day played out like this:

Durrrr makes a raise to $1200 pre flop and Antonius makes it $3600 which Dwan calls.

The flop comes 2Club7Spade5Club and Antonius bets $7200 which is called by durrrr

The turn comes KSpade and Antonius bets $21 600 and durrrr calls again

The river is 4Club and Antonius puts durrrr all in for another $25K and durrrr makes the call.

Antonius shows 10ClubJDiamond8Club8Heart for a ten high flush and durrrr sends his hand into the muck.

Perhaps reading the article would answer your question Confused

Many people railing those high stakes games at FTP say that durrrr is a fish Disagree I don't think so, if not he would have not look for that challenge. He's actually making profits from it and I hope he'll keep making it so that people start to regard him differently as a poker player.
 Dellbo993/5/2009 3:51:09 PM GMT
Those that think Durrr is a fish are idiots and all of them would get killed by him on a poker table.

Most are just jealous or don't like him personally and are too dumb to separate their feelings towards him and the quality of his play.

All the top players respect his game immensely and I think they are better equipped to judge his game than the dumb a$$ railbirds that are usually begging for money.

Also his results speak for themselves.

 Stigmatt3/5/2009 6:30:49 PM GMT
yep, this nice back for Durrrr
 Noogey3/5/2009 6:33:09 PM GMT

Yer think its fair to say tom rules the online poker games at the moment, its deffintley his pond that he swims in.
But do you guys think he is as good playing offline?
 Caesar3/5/2009 8:00:59 PM GMT
Well, he has some offline results, though they are not so impressive comparing to on-line play. Talking about challenge, I don't think that Antonius has much chanses here. Even though durrrr's play sometimes seems to be a bit strange, the style of Antonius often can be described by the word 'gambling'. Sometimes he plays really fishy. I guess durrrr may have some more problems with Ivey, but I won't try to predict the result of this battle...

Highstakesdb has him down over 2 million for this year.

Who knows but I'd like to bet he's still one of the best.

I watched the first episode of High Stakes Poker ( the new Series ) a few days ago and I thought he provided us with some fantastic action. He really was an absolute star when it came to entertainment. He also looked completely at home in that environment, unlike some of the other newcomers.

I've always found him a little creepy and perhaps a little too smug but I don't care if he's gonna play like that. I'm quickly becoming a big fan.

To quote Doyle " Tom's just got more gamble than anyone else, he reminds me a little of myself in my younger years" I trust Doyles' opinion more than most.

His super laggy style reminds me more of Stu Unger but either way I can't wait to see episode two.

I like them long posts, someting to read inbetween games Big Smile .

Welcome btw Smile
shokaku does DB cover offline games? Always thought it was online only.
Gotta say im looking forward to High Stakes Poker, and if doyel is saying that then who am ito argue Blink
I like his play, but he frustrates me (playing live) from wht iv see he is one lucky guy, but i probably dont understand why he does what he does at times so will e intresting to see.
"He also looked completely at home in that environment, unlike some of the other newcomers." yer but he has been playing some of the big boys for a while now so id expect him to be completely at home unlike some of the outhers, also all the hype he gets woud be a real confadence boost.
Time will tell, i think he wont be such a winning player at the live games but lets see.....

Yep. Only online games. And some say, that they miss same games there too.

But high stakes games on Full Tilt are not the same as last year. Guy is missing.
 KG19753/6/2009 6:50:52 PM GMT
I don't know if he's a fish or not, I just wish I had his money Big Smile

Antonius is very fishy in that hand. I wonder what Durr mucked? A set?
 MANUEDO3/6/2009 9:41:07 PM GMT
How much does it long this deal ?
What is the prize for winner ?
I don't know Durr but seems to me Antonius to be a good player...

50.000 hands

If i remember correctly Durrr will win 0,5 million, if he ends up ahead, and his opponent 1,5 million, if he makes a profit.
 GeneYuss3/7/2009 4:45:00 AM GMT
Is Antonius back from Thailand? I think that's why they haven't played much because of the different time zone.
 olin1113/8/2009 1:38:52 AM GMT
i didnt like that chalenge in start because durrr is just to good at multi tableing. no one can beat him i think.
 B1gfoot3/8/2009 2:19:21 PM GMT

If so anychance you could update.

Nothing new in the west. Ca. 4200 hands played. Durrr up 140k
 GeneYuss3/9/2009 12:33:32 PM GMT
Ya, you can follow it on Full Tilt; http://www.fulltiltpoker.com/durrrr-vs-antonius and few other sites I don't know if I can list.

i'd still be interested if there's something true about the rumors that dwan is broke
 GeneYuss3/13/2009 5:41:17 AM GMT
I don't think there is anyway Dwan is broke. How much is he down this year?

Highstakesdb has him down ~ 3.3 million.
 fcumred3/13/2009 12:43:34 PM GMT
Think of the rakeback these two are getting
 redeemo3/13/2009 12:46:48 PM GMT
fcumred, afaik theres cap on the rake taken by the house on ftp to $0.5. and of course, the rakeback accumulated a month for these high stakes players wont hardly cover a 3x pf raise lol
 fcumred3/13/2009 2:24:39 PM GMT
If they want to donate it to me then I wont object.

Thanks for the info shokaku.

I'd be surprised if Dwan issued the million dollar challenge with only 3.3 mill. And didn't Dwan win around ~7 million last year? He probably has some of that left over.

I'm just wondering how much HSP and other shows pay the players because there is no way they play for free. I know a lot of sponsors pay the players but some players don't have sponsors.

You misunderstoud my post. Dwan has lost 3.3 million this year. For 2008 they have him up 5.5 million. But highstakesdb only cover online games, and do miss some there too.

I know what you meant. It's just rumored that Dwan is broke. So if Dwan's bankroll was only 3.3 mill at the beginning of the year than he'd be broke but I don't think he's broke. What do you think? I seen a thread in Oct.2008 where Dwan was down to 1mill. Do you know how much rakeback Dwan gets? I think all Full Tilt Pros like Antonius get 100% rakeback?

He was down even more in February. So i don't think he is broke. Where does this rumour come from?

Rake is comparable low at the high stakes. So rakeback will not save the day.
 Cranberry3/16/2009 8:51:11 AM GMT
Nahh he aint broke!
 shokaku3/17/2009 4:19:10 PM GMT
A new session!

Antonius could make up a lot of his earlier losses with a 87k win.

Challenge:

A bit over 5000 hands played. Durrr up 52k

There was some news articles on some websites and some people mentioned Durrrr being broke in some forums.

Ya, they finally continued Durrrr's challenge. Pretty close so far. I wasn't expecting it would be this close but only 10% done so lots could happen.
 shokaku3/21/2009 6:54:03 AM GMT
A new session!

Antonius took over the lead with a nice winning session.

Challenge:

A bit over 5500 hands played. Antonius up 107k.
 Davoodoo3/21/2009 11:27:25 AM GMT
They will probably quit the challenge in about 10 K hands played anyway ...
 shokaku3/23/2009 4:03:42 PM GMT
A new session!

Durrr retakes the lead with a 124k win.

Challenge:

A bit over 5900 hands played. Durrr up 15k
 neviu3/23/2009 5:32:44 PM GMT
