durrrr Wins $1.7m but Antonius Holds in the Challenge.

Friday, 22 May 2009

A good week for durrrr is blackened by Antonius’s 10 buy-in lead in their heads-up challenge.

Tom “durrrr” Dwan has had by all accounts a torrid 2009 with reports suggesting he is $3-4m in the red this year. However, in the past week he has been on a real tear across the high stakes tables with over $2m net profit against Hansen, Ivey and others at the nosebleed stakes.

Earlier in the week he took $407,000 from Gus Hansen and just last night he won an additional $900,000 playing heads-up Pot-Limit Omaha. In addition he took over $330,000 from Phil Ivey earlier in the week which contributed to a $1.2m net profit before last night where he won almost seven figures more.

However, his past week’s profit might not even cover his payout to Antonius if the Finn continues to hold this lead. Barely a quarter of the way through the challenge is, admittedly, a bad time to make judgements, especially in the high-variance game of heads-up PLO, but… durrrr, you had best get your skates on!
