There have some incredible games running at Full Tilt Poker in the last few weeks. Last week was no different, including Saturday's games where big names such as Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond, Viktor "Isildur1" Blom, Gus Hansen, Alex "PostflopAction" Kostritsyn, Niki Jedlicka and Daniel "jungleman12" Cates battled each other at the nosebleed tables. The latter, Daniel Cates, ended up winning an incredible $677.4k on Saturday!
As of today, Cates is $2.78 million in the black this year (65,450 hands) and has surpassed $10,000,000 in winnings at Full Tilt Poker (366,279 hands)! According to highstakesdb, a site tracking online poker results, Daniel Cates is ranked third on the overall list of the biggest winners online with a profit of $10,187,263! He's not far behind Finland's very own Patrick Antonius in second place with $11,315,549. However, there is still a long way to go until he catches up with fellow American pro Phil Ivey, who has won an increadible $19,242,744 playing at Full Tilt Poker since 2007 (results for Polarizing and RaiseOnce accounts not included).

| These are astronomical amounts of money being talked about and i can only dream about such things. Jungleman is a heck of a player and always seems to be involved in all the high stakes games|

| A big day for Alex Luneau at the virtual felt on Thursday saw the Frenchman climb to the top of the daily leaderboard after raking in $366,989.|
Finishing comfortably ahead of Dan Cates($ 215,512 ) and 'Trueteller'( $ 202,989 ), Luneau was also the winner of a $46,000 pot after betting just $3,000 on the final draw.

| Gus Hansen probably helped a lost with Daniel Cates' win on that session.|
On the serious note, good job and congrats on the milestone, Daniel.

| The best thing in this that the only stone I'll ever reach in my life is either going to be a kidney or a gallstone - by a mile. No other option for me since I am probably not at risk to loose five million in Manila (as him), or 600k on FT (to him). I'd even loose my mind loosing five thousand so then I'd be completely lost.|
