Daniel “Jungleman12” Cates has been answering poker fans questions recently in an eye-opening Ask Me Anything -thread.

It has been rumored for years now that Tom "durrrr" Dwan has played some massive pots in Macau's ultra high-stakes cash games. In his AMA, Cates now finally confirms that Dwan once lost a staggering US$20,000,000 pot in a set-over-set situation.

According to Cates, it was the biggest pot he has ever witnessed and he can't say who the other player involved in the hand was.

Cates also updates the Durrrr Challenge situation once again. According to Cates, he will talk with Dwan later how to proceed with the challenge:

"Tom's dad is sick and he is in New Jersey with him, later we will discuss how to proceed...

I think it will eventually finish in some way, tom acknowledges it has been too long as well as the penalties and we will discuss again once he is out of his latest crises....", Cates Said
