    Default Million Dollar Challenge begins

    It's all durrr, all the time here in Buzzy's World. And the latest durrr update is the one everyone has been waiting for: The Million Dollar Challenge has begun.

    In case you forgot, Tom "durrr" Dwan challenged anyone in the poker world to face him heads-up in a minimum of 50,000 hands.

    Durrr e-mailed Card Player yesterday morning to announce that the challenge was indeed starting. Dwan said that he and Patrik Antonius played 1,541 hands, which is about 3% of the challenge.

    From Card Player:

    The young online phenom publicly proposed the poker challenge in January, and it didn’t take long for some of his top peers to respond. Phil Ivey and David Benyamine initially showed interest in taking the 22-year-old on, with Ivey accepting the challenge first. That same week, Antonius soon followed suit and notified CardPlayer.com that he was accepting the offer, as well.

    After the pros worked out the details and their schedules, it was decided that the Finnish star would have the first crack at Dwan.

    “I didn’t have to persuade Phil and David too much (to let me go first),” Antonius said today. “They know that they will get their chance after me.”

    Durrr is my favourite online player and I've been rooting for him.

    This guy just doesn't quit!

    He's had a pretty rough start to the year after an awesome 2008. He's doing well in the challenge though but it's still early days.
