Jungleman goes Jungle in Aussie Millions $100k Challenge

Daniel "jungleman12" Cates lost his temper, his chips, and $200k after twice busting the Aussie Millions $100k challenge holding poket Kings

In a remarkable show of petulance, one of online poker's biggest every money winners, Daniel "jungleman12" Cates angrily threw a handful of chips across the table at the player who busted him out of the Aussie Millions $100k challenge yesterday afternoon, Jeff Rossiter.

This was Cates second bullet in the high roller tournament, having already dropped $100k after getting his KK all in on the flop against Steve O'Dwyer, only to find himself drawing dead as O'Dwyer had flopped quad Aces.

Cates is well known for his angry outbursts both online and live, and has talked in the past about his desire to stop acting up when he gets tilted. However, when he once again found his pocket Kings up against the pocket Aces of Jeff Rossiter, Cates certainly didn't do too well in masking his frustration. According to Pokernews.com Cates shouted out, "Are you f***ing kidding me?!?!" before hurling his cards at Rossiter.

After the board failed to deliver one of Cates two outs to keep his tournament hopes alive, he then went a step further, grabbing a handful of his chips and once again throwing them "baseball style" across the table at Rossiter, with a number of them hitting the Aussie favourite square in the chest. Tut tut Daniel!

Rossiter's good fortune didn't however help him reach any siginificant position in the event, which today played down to a final table.

Going into the final day Germany's Ole Schemion leads a stacked final table which also features the likes of Erik Seidel, Scott "mastrblastr" Seiver, Justin "ZeeJustin" Bonomo, Jason Mo, Dani "Ansky451" Stern, and Richard Yong. Making up the final eight for his second High Roller Final table of the week is the winner of the $25k event Alex Trevallion; although with the short stack of a little under 15bb, Trevallion will have to make a move pretty early tomorrow if he has hopes of making back to back wins.
