Daniel "Jungleman" Cates seems to be on cloud nine lately as the online poker legend, aside from the naked Playboy Bunny pictures taken in the French city of Cannes, he also has been spotted in what's described to be a softcore porn video.
Cards are in the air at the Emperors Palace in Johannesburg, South Africa. According to WPT's website, 7 players (Phil Ivey, Antonio Esfandiari, Dan Cates, Jeff Gross, Max Altergott, local player Kinesh Pather, and back-to-back Alpha8 champion Philipp Gruissem) have registered for the Day 1 of the $100,000 buy-in tournament.
Sunday was an action-packed day at Full Tilt Poker's nosebleed tables with Daniel "jungleman12" Cates and "proudlikeagoat" ending up as the biggest winners with a profit of $200k+ each! proudlikeagoat, whose identity is unknown, made all his profits from a morning session at a $400/$800 No Limit Hold'em table. In total, he took down 2 of the 3 $200k+ pots of the day (both from a player called "MalACEsia") and called it a day when he had won $246.8k!
