Jungleman Arrives in Vegas to Take on Gus Hansen

Bobbys Room has become a dangerous place for Gus Hansen it seems, with Daniel Jungleman Cates flying in to Vegas with a mission to relieve the Great Dane of everything he owns…

Last week saw a lonely Hansen sitting in Bobby’s Room at the Bellagio Casino with no-one to challenge in his hotly-anticipated ‘great summer’ of high-stakes cash games. Calling out Jungleman, however, may have been a case of be careful what you wish for.

The double-barrelled Instagram response from Jungleman Dan would strike fear into the hearts of most, but Hansen is nothing if not cool under pressure.

Playing $2k-$4k with the likes of Brian Rast, it wasn’t just high-stakes poker on the menu as he waited for hitman Cates to arrive. Offering 100-1 odds on the NBA finals result could have seen Gus forking out $120k
