Patrik Antonius and Tom ‘durrr' Dwan managed to put together a meaningful 12th session in the 50 000 hand Dwan million dollar challenge midweek, playing a rapidly fluctuating and thrilling 2 043 hand session over almost eight hours before calling it a night due to fatigue. Durrr was at one point handling action on seven tables simultaneously and with apparent aplomb.
Biggest hand of the night, which generated a pot of $154 984, went to Antonius after a brief but intense round of action, and contributed handsomely to Antonius' final result, which saw him edge ahead of his opponent to finish with an overall $80 707 lead on Dwan in the $200/400 pot-limit Omaha challenge.
The two poker aces have now completed 9 290 hands, or around 17 percent of the required 50 000 hands, with an average pot size of $4 077. In the latest session the pair managed to get through an average 250 hands every hour.
