Patrik Antonius and Tom Dwan logged some more hands in the "durrrr" challenge on Sunday. By the end of the session, Patrik's lead in the challenge had widened to approximately $488k.
According to Full Tilt Poker, Dwan and Antonius have played 13,246 of the required 50,000 hands in the challenge.
Antonius is currently up $488,133, which I believe is the biggest lead that either player has had in the challenge.
