Daniel Cates' challenge match against Durrrr may have ground to a halt but Jungleman is keen for another heads up contest and has thrown down a €100,000 gauntlet.
The 21-year-old, who is rumoured to have won $7m at the online tables, will take on the challenger at the Prague Poker Festival on 6th December with blinds set at €200/€400 with a minimum sit down of €100,000. The action will be streamed exclusively at thepokerfarm.com on a 15-minute delay with hole cards shown.So why is Cates keen for a new challenge? “I’m sick and tired of all the negative publicity the game of poker has received in the past few months,” said Jungleman. “As someone who loves the game, I think the poker world deserves to know who the best poker player on the planet is. I’m confident that it’s me. If anyone has the nerve to take me on, let them come to Prague in December and sit down across from me at the table.”With unfinished business against Tom Dwan could the new challenge be aimed at Durrrr? Jungleman would neither confirm nor deny saying, “This is not about the past. I don’t run away from something once I start it. And there is no person alive who I will refuse this offer to play me.”Bookmaker Matchbook.com, fresh from some hefty payouts after a US winner at the WSOPE, will be offering odds on the new Jungleman challenge. “There has already been substantial interest in this challenge, even without knowing who Jungleman’s opponent might be.” read a statement from Matchbook. “Cates has very little experience playing live and he has never played in front of cameras with his hole cards revealed. There are people out there who think he cannot possibly win without his computer screen!”Cates disagreed with that opinion, saying, ““Nobody can beat me, and I’m more than prepared to put my money where my mouth is.”Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
