Jungleman12 and URnotINdanger2 are the nicknames of two of the most successful and active poker players at Full Tilt Poker at the moment. Even though they have been in the spotlight for almost a year now, they have decided not to reveal their real names. There have been many people who have tried to figure it out though, but nothing has ever been confirmed - until now! 

Thanks to some investigations done by people working for one of the poker world's leading magazines, we can now tell you who they are...

Jungleman12's real identity is Daniel Cates and he's a 20-year-old economy student living in Maryland, USA. He started showing up at Full Tilt about a year ago and has since then won about $2.7 million dollars from playing NLH and PLO, however, he has won most of his money from Omaha. We will hear a lot more about this man from now on as he has accepted to take part in a new durrrr challenge against Tom Dwan.


URnotINdanger2's real name is Scott Palmer and he's also 20 years old and lives in Maryland. He started showing up at Full Tilt's high stakes tables at about the same time as Jungleman12 but he has "only" won about $400,000.

Both players have smaller wins in, for example, some side events at this year's PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, but apart from that no bigger wins in live tournaments. It's from online poker these guys make their money.

Jungleman's identity is known for long time, isnt it?
 Aggro66601/09/2010 00:11:36 GMT
the question is, is it fair and not rigged? or they have been selected, to be heros, as we know, pstars and fulltilt have the system of
- heros
- players
and payers...

I've never heard of these two players, but the high stakes,

that hopefully would be able to play them some day but no one knew my name

but at least could play really good poker levels and against the best players

in the world of poker, although it might seem like a dream also see it

as using real possibility and not losing hope of some day being able to play them,

a greeting to everyone.

cool some fresh blood at FTP... not that there at my level or not that im at there level i should say.
New players at this sort of level FTP get a lot of press.
Thats good if thats what you want or need to highten your profile in any way.

anyone think it's weird 2 that they are both from Maryland and started at the same time, only a year ago. making 2.7 milion in a year, even with good brm you need about 48 ours of play per day!!must b rigged!!
 SuperNoob06/11/2010 20:14:59 GMT

jungleman12 has been on a tear recently, he has even been tearing a strip off of Durrrr so far in the Durrrr challenge. 20 years old and beating the best... awesome skillz.
 jessthehuman07/11/2010 00:27:12 GMT

That isn't the question at all.. You're just an idiot if you think that.

Most of these players already made a name for themselves on iPoker/cereous/other networks before playing the nose-bleeds @FTP

Also - Dwan/etc can hold their own in live games also (they rigged also? no doubt..)
