Who is better between Tom Dwan and Patrik Antonius? in cash and tournament play and What comparisons do you see between Gus Hanson and Tom Dwan in aggressiveness ?
Durr and PA are both very good, I find it really hard to say who is better. Durrr is more aggressive than Gus across the board.

I think you should add Gus to your list. I would like to hear your take on him.

How much of his success do you feel was reliant on opponents not willing to play back at him without strong hands?Now that he is routinely playing against players who will do so, do you think he will have to adjust somewhat?
Meh, no not really. I think him and some of the young players were able to build large bankrolls initially due to Guy playing online and losing a lot of money.

Daniel, how many strokes would you have to give Durrr in order for him to agree to a golf match?

How surprised were you Durr had 66 in that hand on PAD? Were you upset he didn't show it to tilt Hellmuth?

The time he takes is so irritating imo. He just opens his mouth a bit...long pause...does an ever so subtle shoulder heave move, almost as if he's about to hack up a fur ball....then the pause....and again....the heave.....grabs some chips....holds them up and sort of looks at them, separates them a bit....and bets... repeat.maybe this irritating act is intentional?You've said he's good, but what does that mean really? like you mentioned the bet sizing and post flop stuff. anything else? His results obviously speak for themselves but sometimes his play seems a bit donkish to a hack like myself. I will say he also seems to run pretty well.

Given the difference in experience, do you think he could some day match or pass Ivey skill wise?

How long do you think it would take you if you completely committed to get to where you are even money vs Durr hu live? Online? Do you think you could gain an edge?

Does his table image/personna serve him best in getting players to lay down hands or in getting players to pay him off with losers?
