Poker Pro Dan ‘Jungleman’ Cates Loses $5 Million Playing High-Stakes Poker In Manila

Post by luck9gamer »

Dan ‘Jungleman’ Cates is considered to be one of the best Texas Hold ’em players in the world, but a recent trip to Manila didn’t go quite so well for the 25 year old American. According to a tweet he posted after crashing out of some high-stakes cash game action at a local casino, he lost quite a bit of money: “Sooo Manila didn’t go well, only lost about 38m hkd(5m usd). Gonna play more on the online casinos and take another shot.”

In case you’re wondering, HKD 38M translates to roughly PHP 226,946,950.50, give or take a bit. That’s a lot of lolly to blow during a short trip to the city. Like the old saying goes: you win some, you lose some. Luckily, Dan usually wins more than he loses and his career live poker earnings still stand at well over $3 million at the moment.

It would be nice to see some of the hand details so we can analyse the decisions. Though given the thread title I'm guessing 'fold pre' will be a popular response! :lol:

Yeah, e.g. if he had AA… he should have known to fold when it flopped 7-7-2 because his opponent clearly had 7-2? ;)

Miss the old poker shows on TV, saw something with “Million” in the title being advertised the other day (a horse race perhaps?) and had a brief moment of hope that Sky were bringing back Poker Million, which is what first got me into it.
