Jungleman12 And Getting To Grips With PLO

Daniel ‘jungleman12’ Cates is undoubtedly one of the best heads-up NL players in the world, but has recently expressed his desire to master PLO, too.
Giving the rationale behind his decision, Cates explained that; “It is more fun and it is profitable to learn more games.”
Wisely, jungleman12 choose not to home his skills against Tom Dwan as part of their ‘Durrr Challenge’ but has instead been mixing it up against the likes of such pros as David ‘Raptor’Benefield and harrington25, instead.
So far it has been a rocky road for jungleman12, which is certainly a feature of PLO, and last week he relinquished his spot atop the Full Tilt money list after dropping $200,000 at the virtual felts.
One of the major beneficiaries of jungleman12’s losses was Benefield, who played 1,200 hands with him over four tables of $100/$200 PLO and walked away with a profit of $132,000.
Harrington25 also managed to get in on the action and also scooped $81,000 over 330 hands of $200/$400 PLO against Cates.
However, things aren’t looking too bad for the online prodigy who only started playing PLO seriously this year. He is still showing a $548,000 profit for 2010 so far in the poker variant, with his monthly graph on ‘highstakesdb’ looking relatively stable.
Jungleman12’s PLO profits may not seem so spectacular compared to his $3.54 million profits derived from NL games in 2010, but considering his relative inexperience in the game it is still a very impressive result.
Jungleman12 is currently showing an overall profit of $4,082,532 at Full Tilt this year, and as his skill level continues to improve over time at PLO, his earning potential on the site is sure to receive a major boost.
