Dwan was able to book a small win on Tuesday, meaning that he is now up around $780k in the challenge.

"durrrr" started out strong on Tuesday, thanks in large part to a sizable $300k pot that was shipped his way. Antonius managed to battle back a bit after that, but Dwan still walked away the winner from Tuesday's battle.

27,185 of the 50,000 required hands have now been completed in the challenge.

According to Full Tilt Poker, Dwan has won 14,657 of the 27,185 hands that have been played so far.

Antonius had around $156k in his stack prior to this hand taking place, while "durrrr" had around $147k.

Antonius was the button/SB, while "durrrr" was the BB.

After some pre-flop raising, there was over $20k in the pot when the flop came:
