Durrrr Challenge: Jungleman12 Strikes Again

Online Poker | estimated reading time
2011. January 05.
Monday night, we saw the <strong><em>Durrrr Challenge</em></strong> continue in an almost 3,000 hand long battle, and <strong><em>Daniel Cates</em></strong> has further increased his lead, now $819,000 ahead of <strong><em>Tom Dwan</em></strong>.
The biggest pot of the second Durrrr Challenge was won by Cates on Monday, when Dwan raised preflop with {#}5 {#}4  and Cates fired a 3-bet to $4,800 with {#}J {#}2 . Dwan called, and the flop showed Q-8-6 with two hearts, awarding both players with a flush draw and Dwan a gutshot straight flush draw. Cates bet on the flop (around half the pot), and Dwan called. The two players saw a King of hearts on the turn. 
Both players had completed their flushes, and Cates bet out $16,800 and Dwan called. The river was a 3 of diamonds. Cates fired out again, this time betting $43,600. Dwan shoved all-in with $81,000. Cates called and took down the tremendous $216,000 pot.
 
Tom Dwan
Is Tom 'durrrr' Dwan in trouble?
 
Durrrr took a huge pot as well, when he managed to win $181,000 with a nut flush, but Cates won 58% of the total pots. Dwan and jungleman12 have wagered a massive $113 million so far, with Cates taking down 8 of the 10 largest pots during the second round of the Durrrr Challenge. 
We are currently one-third of the way through the challenge, and although anything can happen, Durrrr will surely have a hard time trying to defeat jungleman12.
