Live durrrr challenge vs. Sammy George begins today

Wednesday, 18 November 2009

Tom "durrrr" Dwan is up over $750,000 at the halfway stage of his 50,000-hand online challenge at $200/$400 Pot-Limit Omaha with Patrik Antonius. He's down over $4,000,0000 to the mysterious Isildur1, a Swedish high-stakes phenomenon.

With that in mind he's decided to play for an additional $1.5m over three heads-up cash games 500BB deep at $500/$1,000. The long-anticipated challenge will be filmed for TV and aired in the UK on Sky Sports next year, sponsored of course by Dwan's new backers Full Tilt Poker.

Sammy George is renowned as the fish in big London cash games (his nickname is Any Two for crying out loud) but has said he isn't afraid of challenging Dwan despite the 23-year-old's reputation.

Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies is more than used to battling durrrr at these stacks, electing to play Pot-Limit Omaha which is the Finn's game of choice. Marcelo "luckexpress" Marigliano will also step up to the plate.
