Dan “jungleman12” Cates Puts FTP Money to Good Use, Wins $1m

0029 Dan Cates

Dan “jungleman12” Cates is back on Full Tilt Poker and better than ever.

The US poker refugee received his FTP balance late last month and has been on an absolute scorcher in the $2,000/$4,000 2-7 Triple Draw games over the last few days.

Cates was nigh-unstoppable on Sunday when he won over $400k from Alexander “PostflopAction” Kostritsyn and then added $220k in the big 6-Max games that were running, according to highstakesdb.com.

The Maryland native was back at it last night winning another $200k from Kostritsyn and $125k in a 6-max 2-7 game against Viktor “Isildur1” Blom, Gus Hansen, samrostan and OMGClayAiken.

At the end of the night Cates posted a $387k win, which brings his overall earnings since Sunday up to just over $1 million.

It’s been an outstanding start to the year for Cates as he also won his first major live poker title at the $100k Alpha8 event in South Africa for $500k.

Isildur1 Hit Hardest, Loses $425,819

Meanwhile Isildur1 was the big loser last night, dumping $425,819 to his opponents.

Isildur1 had a fantastic start to 2014 that saw him peak at over $2 million in profit but that’s a distance memory now as he’s been shelled multiple times over the last two months.

The young Scandi has seen his impressive profit dwindle to just $250k with no end in sight.

Fellow Full Tilt Professional Gus Hansen was also a loser last night but it was a relatively small one by his standards. The Great Dane dropped approximately $70k.
