The Durrrr Challenge has started.

The first session in the "durrrr Challenge" kicked off with Tom "durrrr" Dwan taking on Patrik Antonius. Thus far, Antonius, Phil Ivey, and David Benyamine have all accepted Dwan's challenge.

Antonius and Dwan played 1,541 of the required 50,000 hands, with Dwan emerging a $134,911.50 winner over the course of the first session. The game was PLO and they played on four of the eight "durrrr Challenge" tables that are currently set up on Full Tilt poker.

When the $500-$1,000 action on Full Tilt broke Saturday afternoon, Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Patrik Antonius agreed to resume their "durrrr Challenge" match.

Dwan and Antonius sat down for their second session, where Dwan won $36,661 over the course of 92 hands before pausing to take a lunch break. Action resumed 2,5 hours later and they played 1288 hands.

As they started the second session of the day, Dwan was up $171,573 over the life of the challenge, but Antonius made a huge comeback, booking a $228,069 win to put him ahead of Dwan by a total of $56,178 over the 2,915 hands they have logged thus far on their way to a total of 50,000 hands.

Antonius quit the match at just after 9 pm EST, Dwan congratulating him on the win.
