Poker pro Tony G has announced he will now be backing an online poker pro in live and online poker tournaments. Dan “Jungleman” Cates is a top poker pro and Tony G will now be backing the pro with his own cash.
Tony G announced on his Party Poker blog that he is now back in the staking business and he believes that Cates is the perfect choice. Tony G stated in his blog:
“I have talked before about how I wanted to stake Isildur1 – well I am back in the staking business now as I am backing Daniel ‘Jungleman’ Cates. 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.”
“He is a talent and has a good heart. He even marked his first day under my wing by coming to the Aviation Club in a suit and very smart he looked too. He’s coming to Tony Resort to meet Nordas and Zasko and explore the forest (a jungleman can surely adapt to Lithuanian forests). He has definitely had his ups and downs but his heart and head are in the right place. I was impressed by his Jungleman Challenge so now I am giving him a challenge!”
“I take this decision as a businessman – I have faith in him to do really big things and believe he will make me money. He just needs a little guiding hand along the way. While Daniel is a long term project I looked forward to seeing how my Hungarian Hellmuth assassin Andras gets on at WPT Malta next week. He’s going to make the brat look like the hot dog riding fool he is!”
Tony was knocked out of Day 1a at the WPT Grand Prix de Paris but he choose to reenter for Day 1b. If he is knocked out again he can still set his hopes on Cates as he has advanced in the tournament, but is carrying a low stack.
