Jungleman12 discusses the durrrr challenge with Aaron Jones

Tuesday, 10 August 2010

The LeggoPoker podcast (The LeggoCast) recently uploaded an interview with Daniel “jungleman12” Cates, the latest high stakes sensation and the next man to take on Tom “durrrr” Dwan for 50,000 hands in a bid to win over $1.5m.

Interviewed by Aaron “AEJones” Jones, Cates reveals that he was surprised he was offered the challenge as he has continually had good results against Dwan. He did admit he was scared at the prospect “but I still believe this is massively +EV” he said.

Currently, durrrr is almost done with his match against Patrik Antonius. The Finnish poker legend is down over $2,000,000 after playing around 40,000 hands of $200/$400 PLO over four heads-up tables. If Dwan should win, then Patrik owes an additional $500,000 but if he can miraculously pull it back to get even a dollar ahead he will win $1,500,000.

Dwan has said that he wants to do two more challenges “before London” which as we know means before September. It should be easy for him and Cates to whack out 50,000 hands over August – and we can’t wait.
