Cates went around the table during a couple of his sessions and showed more than a few familiar faces. The first session being the same as Gus Hansen showed us a couple of weeks back. Timofey “Trueteller” Kuznetsov and Scott Seiver were both present and looked happy to be there.

After going around the table Cates showed his chip stack and explained that he wasn’t bragging as he was

“....losing a Lamborghini or something...”

A couple of days later the action was on again and this time there were some new faces in town, but one participant mysteriously didn’t want to show his face at all. The hooded character was being slightly goaded by Cates who said he had only just met the guy and he didn’t want to talk. Online legend Chris Kruk was another new face present. Kruk is known to be one of the most popular poker training video producers around today.

Of course, Gus Hansen was back in play. The “Great Dane” rarely misses an hour of action when given the opportunity. Who knows if he wins or not but he’s certainly a popular figure when he turns up.


Don’t think I have a career in announcing... gonna stick to poker 🙃
