durrrr Challenge update: Full Tilt Poker


The ultimate prop bet, the durrrr Challenge is live right now on Full Tilt Poker. When I checked last night before heading off to bed, Patrick Antonious and Tom “durrrr” Dwan had played just a bit over 5,000 hands, 10% of the 50,000 hands the challenge is over and the pendulum had swung the other way to have Patrick up on durrrr by about $160,000.

Now many player would think, WOW! $160,000! But people that are familiar to the game know that amount isn’t all that much.

For those of you that don’t know what the hell I’m talking about here is a quick breakdown.

durrrr issued a challenge to anyone except his friend Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond to play him heads up

He is laying 3-1, $1,500,000 if you win, $500,000 to him if you lose, that over the course of 50,000 hands he will be up on you in cash. I fyou are up you keeo the cash you’ve won plus get the juice of the prop bet.

Games are No Limit Hold’em or Pot Limit Omaha High

Stakes are a minimum of $200/$400 blinds

There are a bunch of other rules regarding buyins and stack sizes that I won’t bore you with, but it’s safe to say you need a pretty healthy bankroll to play the game. I’ll have to win a few more freerolls before I can throw my hat in the ring.

Patrick Antonious, Phil Ivey and David Benyamine have all accepted the challenge with Patrick taking first crack at winning the prop.

durrrr and Patrick are playing Pot Limit Omaha on 4 tables

As of right now, only $18,000 separates the two with over $31,000,000 total wagered in that time, it’s no uncommon to see single pots topping $150,000

There are special tables set up at Full Tilt Poker for the challenge, you can check then out here if you want, you will need a Full Tilt Poker account to watch them live though.
