Tuesday, Jan 13, 2009 Durrrr and Antonius warming up
Tom "durrrr" Dwans crazy heads-up challenge is yet to get underway, but that doesn't stop him, and other highstakes pros, from getting a little action.
Patrik Antonius is one of the players prepared to take up the challenge, and as a "warm-up" he sat down with durrrr at a $500/$1,000 Pot-Limit Holdem/Omaha table at Full Tilt Poker.
It wasn't a heads-up table and other players, including Gus Hansen, were seated from time to time, but the biggest pots were played between Antonius and durrrr. The Finnish star came out on top in most of them.
In the biggest pot - $562,719 - Antonius called a pre-flop re-raise to $11,500 with Kh-7h. He flopped a pair of kings and called all the way when durrrr semi-bluffed and bluffed with a flush draw (he also picked up a gutshot on the turn), holding 9c-8c.
Antonius won four more huge pots against durrrr - $508,231, $498,871, $360,786 and $360,786. Our guess is that Patrik can't wait to play his 50,000 heads-up hands against Tom Dwan.
