Daniel Cates aka "jungleman12"

This website is an unofficial fan site for Daniel Cates, also known as jungleman12. But who is Dan Cates?

Many people do not know the name Daniel Cates as he only recently raised to celebrity status. But if you play online poker, you probably heard of his success on the online poker scene. Even in poker jungleman12 is very specialized as he mostly play online poker ring games. So online or live tournament players might not know him either.

To cut the chase, the reason why Daniel Cates is rapidly appearing on the poker radard screens is that he was the most profitable online poker in 2010, winning about $5.5 millions. 2011 started well too. And not just that. Dan really wants to prove to the world that he is the best, so he does not focus on finding big whales to play with, on the contrary he loves to play against the best players at Full Tilt Poker, such as Phil Ivey, Patrik Antonius or Tom 'durrrr' Dwan. He also plays at pokerstars, challenging players such as Isildur1.

In this vein Dan 'jungleman12' Cates is no other than the second contenter in the famous 'Durrrr challenges', the first being Patrik Antonius. In these matches of multi-table online poker ring games of Texas Holdem or Omaha High, the player victorious after 50,000 played hands receives a prize of $1.5 million in addition to his profits. But if Tom Dwan wins, he only gets $500k. In his usual bravado defied all poker players in this very unfavorable (to him) competition, and jungleman12 is currently playing the second one. But it takes months to complete.

Daniel Cates only started playing online poker a few years ago, but his rise has been meteoritical. He routinetely plays Phil Ivey, considered the best player in the world, and he is barely 20 years old and used to work at a McDonald's a while back.

Dan 'jungleman12' Cates is a heads-up ring game specialist, this being considered the purest form of poker, as you are constantly playing hands and playing them versus the same opponnent, forcing you to be active and aggressive; waiting for good cards does not work in heads-up as you may have to wait until your stack is gone, while in a full ring game playing patiently a tight-aggressive game may be a profitable strategy but without necessarily reflecting raw poker talent.

So let's see how 2014 is shaping up for the online poker prodigy.

Now Internet history is much faster than old history. So since we started this site Full Tilt has shut down and now reopened. We were quite disappointed to see our favorite site closed for so long and we now play at Titan Poker. Use a Titan Poker Bonus Code in order to join under the best terms including their fantastic new depositor bonus and their VIP Club. Regarding Daniel Cates himself we have not heard from him for a while and he has not yet signed up at the new Full Tilt poker room. So we keep posted and will let you know of any future developments.

Beyond online poker a new form of betting that his taking the Internet by storm is binary options also called digital options. Some argue that they are closer to roulette with a negative expected value than poker where skill depends on each person. This is open to debate but what is known is that a significant portion of binary options traders are profitable.

So for those of you who wish to try something different given that the game of online poker has passed its prime, these financial betting instruments are also intellectually challenging like poker. The idea is to make short-term market predictions, in other words bet how the market will behave, like going up, down, ranging, trending, hitting a price target, etc. These products can be tailored and can be based on a large list of underlying assets, from stocks, commodities to currencies and indices. There is not large financial commitment to get started at all, so give it a shot, you could make a lot of money from it.
