Hit and Run: Durrrr Challenge Is On; Negreanu Eyes Bracelet #7; No More Withdrawal Fees at Party


Don’t hold your breath, but according to one of the players the Durrrr Challenge is starting back up. Negreanu makes final table of WSOPC National Championship. Failla wins Borgata SPO.

Durrrr Challenge the redux of the redux of the redux

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: The durrrr Challenge will recommence in the near future.

According to Jungleman Cates (who is keen on finishing the challenge match considering he’s up over $1 million) he and Tom Dwan have finally settled on a playing schedule. Of course, Full Tilt just nuked all of their high stakes tables, so where these two will play is an entirely new problem they need to solve.

At its current rate they will finish the 50,000 hand match at the Shady Acres Retirement Home in Poughkeepsie in 2068.

Negreanu in contention for WSOPC National Championship

It’s good to be Daniel Negreanu.

In his first tournament since his heartbreaking 11th place finish in the WSOP Main Event, Negreanu finds himself at the final table (a tough final table) of the World Series of Poker Circuit Series National Championship.

The winner receives a WSOP bracelet (it counts on the WSOP bracelet list) but Negreanu will have stiff competition in the forms of Darryll Fish, Circuit Series legend Alex Masek, and overwhelming chip-leader Loni Harwood.

Negreanu enters the seven-handed final table third in chips. The winner will also pocket over $340k.

– Outgoing Director of Poker for bwin.party Jeffrey Haas ┬ábested 111 other entrants in a charity poker tournament for DT38. Haas has had a very eventful couple of weeks – the announcement of his departure from bwin.party which occurred just after he personally delivered his baby daughter, and now an act of altruism as most of the prize-money ended up being donated to the charity.
