The fifth episode of our poker documentary series Easy Game takes us to Malta for a conversation with high-stakes legend Dan “Jungleman12” Cates.

Cates' Jungleman12 account on Full Tilt Poker is ranked as the fifth most profitable in the history of online poker, earning more than $7 million since 2008.

Cates has played and beaten the best players in the world, but took a serious hit when his FTP account was frozen on Black Friday.

Over the last year and a half Cates has been traveling the world playing poker live and online, and we were able to spend some time with him on the Mediterranean.

Check out the video and keep an eye out for more Easy Game episodes coming soon.

Those are some astonishing numbers. $5.5 million against Ivey and Antonius and the like? Incredible.
