Dan "Jungleman" Cates' Theory on the Origin of Short Deck Poker

Six Plus Holdem aka Short Deck Poker is said to have originated in live poker rooms in Asia around 2014.

Tom Dwan and Phil Ivey, both frequent visitors of the high stakes action in Macau, began promoting the game in 2015. Short Deck Poker was and is a favorite among many high rollers due to its increased action and variance.

Super pro Dan "Jungleman" Cates is one of those high rollers, although he may not be very much a fan of Short Deck at the moment according to his recent social media posts.

That tweet was followed by another a few days later that found Jungleman expressing his opinion on how Six Plus Hold'em was created.

That makes one wonder, will yet another player get mad after losing a ton of money at Short Deck Poker and throw out the sixes, sevens and eights too?

Shorter Deck Poker, anyone?
