Patrik Antonius and Tom Dwan got it together for another session in the million dollar Dwan Challenge midweek, playing 700 hands to bring the total played of the 50 000 required to 14 249.
It was another weak session for Dwan, who ended up another $32 706 behind his opponent, who is now $424 631 ahead, although there is still a lot of mileage in this challenge.
In the current session $7.6 million in wagers was recorded, bringing the total for the challenge thus far to $91 001 705 according to the independent tracking stats at MarketPulse. The average pot size in the latest session was $4 554, with Dwan taking the biggest at just over $153 000.
Dwan had better luck elsewhere, playing online Pot Limit Omaha against Phil Ivey, Gus Hansen and Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies and leaving the virtual tables up by more than $1.2 million, no doubt a welcome recovery from weekend games when the intrepid and always aggressive Dwan went down a million.
