<strong>Tom <em>&rsquo;durrrr&rsquo; </em>Dwan </strong>and <strong>Daniel <em>&rsquo;jungleman12&rsquo; </em>Cates</strong> keep up the good work recently; <strong><a href="http://www.durrrrchallenge.com/tom-dwan-cuts-durrrr-challenge-deficit-to-500000-922/" title="Durrrr Challenge 2"><em>Durrrrr Challenge 2</em></a></strong> is alive and well, with a 1,214 hands session played yesterday. Dwan managed to reduce his deficit to $500,000, while Cates swept in the biggest pot in the Challenge so far.
Yesterday afternoon, durrrr and jungleman drew 1,214 hands closer to the 50,000 mark of the Challenge in two hours' time. Although Dwan closed in on Cates, reducing his deficit to $200,000, the latter eventually succeeded in maintaining his considerable lead of $0.5 million. Three pots were over $150,000 and another totalled at $210,000, which was won by Cates, eliminating most of Dwan’s advance. Cates also leads in overall number of pots won with 8,265 (58%)

According to his Twitter, some kind of internet connection malfunction contributed to Dwan’s less than lucky day: “Just had one of the most tilting hands of my life happen. Was playing JungleMan in the challenge and my internet cut out, so I checked behind the nuts in a spot where he would’ve 100% called with 2 pair for $34,683 more. So tilted.”

A total of 14,190 hands of the Challenge have been played so far. We trust that they keep up the pace and provide a good show playing the rest.
