There were no surprises that on a recent ask me anything (AMA) thread on Poker VIP,Daniel 'Jungleman’ Cates got questioned over the status of the Durrr Challenge. What may surprise many though was the confrimation that Tom “durrr” Dwan once lost an eyewatering $20M pot in Macau.
Cates was asked what was the biggest pot he had ever witnessed—his response: “I saw Tom get set over set on a dry board vs another player for something like $20M usd total pot.”
And as for the Durrr Challenge, it looks like we all may have to wait a bit longer as Cate’s said: “Tom’s dad is sick and he is in New Jersey with him, later we will discuss how to proceed…”
