The eleventh session in the Tom ‘durrr' Dwan million dollar challenge with Patrik Antonius (see previous InfoPowa reports) was short and, for Dwan, sweet. The two players met again online at Full Tilt Poker to play 154 hands over 20 minutes before Antonius called it a night.
The statistical site MarketPulse, which has been recording the progress of the 50 000 hand contest, reported that nine days had passed since the last clash between the two, and that the latest [eleventh] session brought to 7 247 the hands player so far over the 11 sessions, with a total of 41 683 576 placed at risk by the two players.
The biggest pot in session 11 was $123 977 picked up by Dwan when he flopped a set of jacks and Antonius missed all of his outs.
Dwan is back in the lead in the challenge overall, which has now been running for a total of 20 hours, but it's only by a slender $30 577.
Dwan continued to deliver exciting entertainment on the TV screens this week when the fifth season of High Stakes Poker was shown in the United States. In the final episode the 22 year-old clashed with fellow ace Barry Greenstein to win a $919 600 pot, the largest ever won on the show. Other players in the hand included current WSOP champ Peter Eastgate.
