The durrrr challenge – jungleman12 increases lead by $110k

Wednesday, 8 December 2010

Fortunately for worldwide railbirds, it appears that Tom “durrrr” Dwan and Daniel “jungleman12” Cates have gotten back on the durrrr challenge. Unfortunately their last session only lasted for 346 hands; less than one hour of play. Cates increased his lead by around $110,000.

This puts Cates’s total lead at $755,612 after 10,129 hands meaning that they are one fifth of the way to the 50,000 hand total. Dwan is trailing but not by as much as it seems – three-quarters of a million dollars is after all less than twenty buy-ins.

It appears to many observers that Dwan is trying new strategies and becoming a little less aggressive against Cates – evidently he didn’t do so well for the first 10,000 hands of the challenge so who can blame him for trying new things?

He did win over $2.5m from Antonius in the last challenge though so he’s basically freerolling this one.
