Jungleman Gets No Takers - High Stakes Rings Instead

With only one week to go until the World Poker Heavyweight title match to be played at the Prague Poker Festival, no challenger has as of yet stepped forward to play Daniel "Jungleman" Cates.   A Poker Farm spokesman commented, "The fact that no challenger has stepped forward only bolsters our confidence that Jungleman is one of the best heads up NL Hold'em player in the world, and it appears that the high stakes poker community agrees.”

In the event that no challenger steps forward, a high stakes cash game will be streamed from the Prague Poker Festival via the Thepokerfarm.com and the www.worldpokertour.com websites.  The stakes will be 50-100 euros, with a 10,000 euro minimum sitdown.  Both Jungleman and Luke Schwartz have confirmed their participation.  Said Schwartz about the game, “I’ll play heads-up or I’ll play a ring game.  It’s just so cringe if these guys call themselves sharks and then run and hide.”  The game will run from 4pm local time on Dec 6th and be streamed on a fifteen minute delay, with hole cards shown. A reduced rake will apply. 

Said a Poker Farm spokesman, “There is going to be a lot of money in Prague and quite a bit will change hands during this big game. While the lack of a heads up battle will see the WPHC title remaining vacant along with the belt, spectators wanting to see high stakes poker action will not be disappointed.”

Interested players should contact to secure a place on the cash game’s waiting list.

The fact that Jungleman isn't willing to travel to play HU vs the best speaks volumes.

hey pokerfarm since this is your grand idea... why dont you make it worth it for Dans opponenet (think boxing) there is no incentive for anyone to fly out to the CR just to risk 100k they can do that wherever they are located... both pokerfarm and WPT are benefiting and will benefit further from this taking place. Tony G said he will play pay him an appearance fee (no one wants to see Tomy G play - unless there are a number of players for him to choose from to pick on with his outlandish verbal attack. I have a number of players that will accept this challenge. Throw them something to chew on and there will be a match. Another hint - this challenge needs to have 3 "rounds" or "bullets" that creates a real match. Look at any other individual sport there is never a "one and done" mentality. Email me to discuss details or to setup this match.
