Partypoker, Jungleman Want to Restart the Durrrr Challenge

Three months ago Dan “Jungleman” Cates called Tom “Durrrr” Dwan out over Twitter about their unfinished “Durrrr Challenge.” As usual, silence spoke louder than words—as Dwan kept shtum on the matter.

For those of you who don’t know what the Durrrr Challenge is … well, we can understand, given that it started over nine years ago! It is high-stakes multi-tabling heads-up cash game between Dwan and Jungleman. Dwan is currently losing to Cates by $1.2 million, with 30,665 hands remaining.

However, it looks like Jungleman with the help of Jeff Gross and partypoker could be trying to kickstart the challenge once more.

Despite Jungleman once again resuming talks on how to move the Challenge forward, it that doesn’t mean it will go ahead—as Dwan is yet to reply. Publicly at least.

Back in 2017, it looked like the Durrrr Challenge could return as Jungleman and Dwan were in talks to play out there final hands, but unfortunately it came to nothing.

At the time high stakes poker player Doug Polk called out the Challenge, calling it the largest scam in history.

So, once again, fans wait with baited breath to see if this comes to anything.

Check out recent interview between Gross and Jungleman where they talk about the Challenge amongst other things, below.
