The pre-flop play from JungleMan12 is pretty standard. He’s not 4betting here to disguise his hand, which makes sense given durrrr’s post-flop aggression history. On the flop, we see a massive overbet shove from durrrr, which we are guessing he learned from Isildur1. We know that the players decided to run it twice, which makes the shove with a draw a lot more equitable against JungleMan12’s overpair. Unfortunately for Dwan, his strategy didn’t pay off and JungleMan12 banked $60,000 after scooping both halves of the pot.

durrrr rivers a better two pair

The 4bet here is interesting, as JungleMan12 doesn’t have a monster like in the last hand, where he had Q-Q and flatted the 3bet. Instead, he 4bet with a much worse hand, which might be something to note in future Durrrr Challenge play. On the flop, JungleMan12 hit it pretty well for two pair, but decided to check it back, which was a little curious given the pre-flop aggression. Perhaps durrrr’s flatting the 4bet scared him or he thought he could check to slow play his hand. Whatever the case, the river ace slowed JungleMan12 into checking it back for a showdown, clearly realizing that he was either beat at the flop or sucked out on at the river.
