Tony G Backs Daniel "Jungleman" Cates
Wednesday, 12 September 2012
Tony G clearly knows a good investment opportunity when he sees one, first trying to stake Viktor "Isildur1" Blom, and now investing in Daniel 'Jungleman12' Cates.
For anyone unfamiliar with Dan, he is widely regarded as one of the best online No Limit and PLO players in the world, especially at heads up. He was by far the biggest online winner of 2010, profiting over $5 million.
"I take this decision as a businessman - I have faith in him to do really big things and believe he will make me money," said Tony G, "I think this guy could turn $5 million into $100 million – he’s a genius. I started off by backing him for the WPT Grand Prix de Paris and intend to back him live but predominantly online."
It seems as if the deal has got off to a good start, as Cates has just made it to Day 2 of WPT Grand Prix de Paris and Tony will have an early sweat.
