Weekly High Stakes: Cates Continues To Flourish

Mouse and money

It’s been a big week for live tournaments with the European Poker Tour playing out over in Barcelona but that has not stopped many of the regular high stakes online players from getting their daily online poker fix.

In fact, it has had very little effect at all as there was another week of big names, big pots and big winners. Dan “jungleman12” Cates in particular had a good week at the tables and seems to be the player to beat right at this very moment.

Take a look at how the week panned out:


It has been a superb year for Dan “jungleman12” Cates so far and this continued last Saturday with another $300.7k added to his yearly profits. This time around he made his profit from the Mixed Game tables against the likes of Gus Hansen, “PostFlopAction” and Alex “Alexonmoon” Luneau.


Another who has been enjoying a good year is “SanIker” but Sunday saw him suffer a rather substantial loss of around $400k. This all went to “taktloss” who secured profits of $395.2k after the two took in some heads up action on the $1,500/$3,000 Triple Draw tables.


The quietest day of last week with regards to high stakes online action was on Monday. The biggest profit was taken home by “Educa-p0ker” after he came out on top in a heads up duel against “Trueteller” on the $50/$100 No Limit Hold’em tables of PokerStars for a score of $162.5k.


You can always count on Viktor “Isildur1” Blom to be heavily involved in any online action and despite having a rough time of it lately he was back to winning ways with a huge haul of $617.9k on Tuesday. He was on the $1,500k/$3,000k tables when he took his profits, with his biggest victim being Dan “jungleman12” Cates.


Ike “luvtheWNBA” Haxton not so long ago suffered a beating at the hands of “Denoking” to the tune of almost $300k but yesterday he managed to get his revenge. The two played heads up for ten hours on the $300/$600 No Limit Hold’em tables where Haxton claimed profits of $361.1k.


Alex “Alexonmoon” Luneau has been struggling recently but managed to get himself back on track with profits of $293.6k on Thursday. He played for three hours on the 8-Game tables and managed to win his profits from the likes of Gus Hansen, and “Crazy Elior”.


The week ended with a real flurry of action on the high stakes tables of both Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars with a number of big winners being the end result. The biggest of those was “thecortster” who banked a healthy $373.9k from the 2-7 Triple Draw tables of Full Tilt Poker.
