Daniel ‘Jungleman’ Cates Releases Poker Training Videos on RunItOnce

When Daniel 'Jungleman' Cates does something it’s usually in a weird and wonderful way and his recent signing as a RunItOnce team pro was no exception, the Jungleman appearing in a highly-professional and weird wonderful video to announce his arrival...
Cates joins the likes of Jason Koon, Sam Greenwood, Ben Sulsky, Daniel Dvoress and Joni Jouhkimainen among the ranks of RunItOnce’s finest coaches, covering everything from Elite PLO and NLHE to Essential MTT play.
It’s a perfect fit for the RIO team founder and boss Phil Galfond, who has been jousting with Jungleman on and off since the beginning of Galfond’s PLO challenge matches.
Their mini-match saw one of Cates’ earliest acting performances – Jungleman apparently taking acting lessons during lockdown – after he had lost to Galfond...
...and few poker fans will ever forget Jungleman’s leading role in the epic fantasy home game, an adult-themed and not suitable for work poker video if ever there was one...
You’ll have to be an Elite subscriber to the RIO training site if you want to see how much Cates’ acting lessons will intrude on his poker training abilities.
His debut lesson sees Jungleman “presented with a pre-recorded session from a fellow pro poker player seeking to remain anonymous. This anonymous pro typically battles with four cards but, for Jungleman, agreed to play with just two. Dan shares his thoughts on the play, good and bad, throughout the session before the big reveal.”
Feel free to guess who the mystery PLO to NLHE star is and what Cates made of his play on our social media channels.
