Last Friday, 20th March, Tom “durrrr” Dwan and Patrik Antonius continued their 50,000-hand challenge match, logging another 425 hands. With the $161,086 Patrik won in this session, Antonius took the overall lead for the first time since February 21st. He is now up $107,445.

Patrik decided to buy-in for 200 big blinds ($80,000) instead of the typical $40,000. Durrrr started with $40,000 at each table, but quickly had to reload when Antonius won an all-in confrontation within the first five minutes of play.

Dwan made a pre-flop raise to $1,200 and Antonius called. Antonius checked a Jd 5c 3h flop, Dwan bet $1,750, and Antonius came in with a check-raise to $7,650. Dwan called. The Qd landed on the turn and Antonius led out for $17,700. Dwan moved all in for $31,350 and Antonius made the call, showing Ah6h4d2d for straight and flush draws while Dwan revealed As6c5h5s for a set of fives. The 7h on the river made Antonius a seven-high straight and he collected the $80,399 pot.

A couple of minutes later they played another big pot, Dwan raised $1,200 and Antonius called. Antonius bet out on a Js5h4d flop and Dwan called. Both players checked the Th on the turn, and the river fell Jc. Antonius bet $5,600, Dwan raised to $19,300, Antonius reraised to $41,600 and after tanking, Dwan made the call. That river card made Antonius the nut boat with JdTdTc4c and he scooped $90,399.

The session’s largest hand came late in the session. Antonius opened for $1,200, Dwan 3bet to $3,600 and Antonius called. Dwan lead $4,800 on a Qc6s5c flop, Antonius raised to $21,600, Dwan reraised to $72,000, Antonius shoved $118,536, Dwan quickly called. Both had hit a piece of the flop, Dwan with Js9c8s7c for straight and flush draws and Antonius with Jc8h6c5h for two pair and a higher flush draw. The Jd on the turn gave Antonius jacks up and the 4c on the river gave him a flush for a $155,683 pot.
