One of the latest stellar names to confirm they will be in Punta Cana for the Caribbean Poker Party is none other than Daniel “Jungleman” Cates!
Cates, 26, shot to fame when he progressed from $0.25/$0.50 to $25/$50 in the space of two years, grinding heads-up cash games with some of the best players in the world, before progressing to stakes as high as $300/$600 and even $500/$1,000! To date, Cates has more than $10 million profit from online cash games.
If any of you have frequented the King’s Casino in the Czech Republic when there are high stakes cash games taking place, you have likely bumped into Cates as he is a regular in the biggest and richest live cash games. Although there is no tracking available for such games, we’d be willing to wager on Cates being a big winner in those games!
It is not only the cash game scene where Cates excels because he has some impressive results in the live tournament world too.
In 2012, Cates was the runner-up in the partypoker Premier League V in Vienna for a cool $300,000, but that figure was dwarfed by the €1,283,700 Cates won for being the runner-up in the €100,000 Super High Roller at the EPT Grand Final in 2014; Cates has live tournament winnings of almost $3,500,000.
