Jungleman12 Leading Durrrr by $819,213
Tuesday Marathon Session Ended With Dwan Stuck $318,000
In the wee hours of Tuesday morning, Dan “jungleman12” Cates and Tom “durrrr” Dwan sat down on the virtual felt and recorded their longest session together in the nearly one-third completed Durrrr Challenge.
The duo battled on Full Tilt Poker for more than six hours, engaging in almost 3,000 hands of intense $200-$400 no-limit hold’em action. After the four-tabling session was over, Cates had added $318,000 to his lead, which now sits at $819,213 after 17,108 hands.
Below is a screen shot from Tuesday’s contest:
Cates benefited from a cooler situation to the tune of nearly $220,000, after both players turned a flush on a Q 8 6 K board. Dwan’s 5 4 was no good against the J 2 of Cates when all the money went in on an inconsequential river card.
Combined with coming out on the right end of several other six-figure pots, Cates’ session is further continuation of his extended dominance in the high-stakes online world. Cates was the biggest winner in 2010, finishing in the black about $5.5 million.
This past week also featured IHateJuice winning nearly $300,000 from Patrik Antonius in a brief 70-hand session of $3,000-$6,000 limit-hold’em. Likely the most anticipated duel of the week was, however, the pairing of Team PokerStars Pro Isildur1 and Antanas “Tony G” Guoga across four tables of $50-$100 on PokerStars. After 2,500 hands of trash-talking action, Isildur1 was in the black more than $40,000 against the poker veteran from Lithuania.
Richard “Kpederson” Lyndaker versus Scott “URnotINdanger2” Palmer was another vicious match-up from the past seven days. At $200-$400 no-limit hold’em on Full Tilt Poker, Lyndaker dropped $540,000 to his high-stakes foe over the course of a couple separate sessions. Lyndaker, who is also known as “nutsinho” on PokerStars, wrote this in his blog after the defeat: “You probably won’t see me playing those stakes for a bit.”
