Durrrr Issues a Million Dollar Challenge


January 5, 2009

Top online poker player Tom “Durrrr” Dwan has issued a challenge to any player to play him heads up on Full Tilt Poker and he is so confident in his superiority, he is willing to lay 3 to 1 odds to anyone who takes him up.

In a statement made to Bluff Magazine, Durrr states:

“I’m making this heads-up challenge to the world. Anyone can accept. Four tables, minimum of $200/$400, and I’ll put up $1.5 million to their $500,000. We play 50,000 hands minimum and if they end up a dollar after rake they keep the side money or whatever. So basically, if you and I played and you won a dollar, you would get my $1.5 million and if I won a dollar I would win your $500,000. So I’m giving a million dollars free if anyone thinks they can do it.”

Since bursting onto the online poker world as a teenage phenom, Durrrr has taken on any and all comers in the biggest cash games around. What began as a quiet Saturday night with some friends with a $50 deposit, Durrr has made millions climbing through the ranks before even being old enough to play in most casinos. The always confident and equally brash player has no fear, either financial or otherwise as he has already made enough money to live a comfortable lifestyle for the rest of his life. It has gotten to the point where he is now inventing new challenges for himself to keep sharp which is the most likely reason for this latest move.

The rumor associated with the challenge is that it is open to anyone interested with the exception of Durrrr’s friend Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond.

At press time, it is unclear if anyone has accepted the challenge though Durrrr has been spotted playing heads up well into the night against a lesser known high stakes player. We will update this story should any new information come to surface.
