Antonius wins $60k in long Durrrr Challenge game.

Thursday, 29 April 2010

Of the near-$4m Antonius had lost so far this year, he has won back over $2.7m which is probably why the durrrr challenge – thought to be dead by many – returned to Full Tilt’s tables last night.

The two had been on a break for 46 days but then played several thousand hands throughout the course of Tuesday; a match-up that resulted in Antonius booking his first win in the past thirteen challenge sessions.

This $60,696 is a welcome break for Antonius but he still faces a huge – many would say impossible – uphill battle to get even before the 50,000 hands are over. Dwan is still up a total of $1,847,105 which means Antonius will have to win approximately $150 per hand (3.75BB/100) in order to win $1.5m from Dwan at the end milestone.

Join us for updates on the challenge when and if they happen in future, or watch it at Full Tilt Poker.
