Daniel Cates To Be Featured on Three Episodes of "Poker After Dark"

Poker After Dark - Logo - 2017 version - Moon in place of O"Poker After Dark" on PokerGo will feature three new episodes next week, all of which will showcase Daniel "Jungleman" Cates.

Earlier in the summer, "Poker After Dark" aired three cash game episodes that featured Tom "durrrr" Dwan, who returned to TV following a long break from the spotlight. Dwan's appearance generated some heavy buzz, helped by a massive Aces over Kings pot that came at the expense of Antonio Esfandiari.

Next week, Dwan's opponent in the ongoing "durrrr Challenge", Daniel "Jungleman" Cates, will be the focus on "Poker After Dark".

The action begins at 8 pm EST on Tuesday, September 5th, with a $50,000 winner-take-all Sit and Go. In addition to Cates, Doug Polk, Jason Koon, Brian Rast, Isaac Haxton and Frank Kassela will also be taking part.

The next night, the SNG format is scrapped in favor of a $300/$600 No Limit Hold'em cash game with a minimum buy-in of $200,000. This game will feature some of the same faces (Cates, Polk, Haxton, Rast), while also including Nick Schulman and Matt Berkey.

On the final night of play (September 7th), the $300/600 NLHE cash game play will continue, with Jason Koon subbing in for Brian Rast.


Daniel Cates is coming off of an embarrassing loss at the hands of Phil Hellmuth at the recent "King of the Hill" heads-up tournament.

In that best-of-3 match, Cates possessed a massive chip lead in the final and deciding game before eventually losing to Hellmuth. Can Cates rebound on next week's new episodes of "Poker After Dark"?
