5,000 Hand Point Reached In Dwan Vs. Antonius Challenge

Million dollar match could be a long drawn out affair

Tom 'durrr' Dwan and Patrik Antonius got it together for another session in their 50 000 hand million dollar poker challenge this week after delays caused by over-full calendars and movements around the globe.

The two poker aces mixed it up over another nine hundred hands and three hours, bringing the total played so far to a mere 10 percent of the total agreed, with Antonius closing the gap overall but Dwan still ahead in earnings by more than $50 000.

The rules require that the two play over 4 tables in the challenge, and this was accomplished with ease - in fact Dwan showed his remarkable abilty to multi-task by playing in outside games on an additional 5 PLO tables at one stage.

The independent online poker statistical site MarketPulse summarised the Dwan challenge as 5 092 hands played thus far, leaving 44 908 still to be contested; a total of almost 16 hours of play recorded thus far between Antonius and Dwan; six sessions played to date and $28.6 million wagered and placed at risk.
