Durrrr Challenge II: Dwan Books $31,778 Win Against Jungleman12

In the most recent of their Durrrr Challenge II series of heads-up encounters, Tom Dwan booked a $31,778 win against Dan “jungleman12” Cates over 258 hands to reduce his overall losses so far to $659,232.
Tuesday night session involved around 20 minutes of $100/$200 no-limit hold’em of which the largest pot of the night was worth $90,395.
In the hand Dwan showed his trademark aggression when he raised his 8h-2h up pre-flop then called jungleman12’s three-bet. The 6c-Ah-Qs did little to slow down Dwan who re-raised his opponent’s $4400 lead out bet to $11700 and was called creating a pot of $31,400.
Both players then checked when a 3h fell on the turn but the Kh on the river gave Dwan a flush, who went all-in for $29498 after jungleman12 checked. Dwan then scooped the $90395.50 pot after a bemused jungleman12 called then quickly mucked his hands after seeing Dwan’s ultra-loose play.
However, jungleman12 got his own back a little later on by taking down the second biggest pot of the night, after being dealt Ah-Qc. There was $34,000 in the pot on a 9d-3h-4c-Qd board before a Qh on the river handed jungleman12 trip Q’s, who then managed to induce a $20799 all in check call from Dwan. Jungleman12 won the $75,597 pot but still ended their lightning session down $31,778 overall.
The stats show that the duo have now played 7,660 hands over six sessions with durrrr winning 2,926 of those hands to jungleman12’s 4,691.
With 11 hours and 55 minutes of HU NLHE played, the duo are now 15% the way through their challenge with Daniel “jungleman12″ Cates currently showing a profit of $657,774.
Cates originally wagered $500k of his bankroll to kick start the challenge and is hoping to capitalise on the generous 3 to 1 odds offered by Dwan.
