Jungleman12 Already Up $750k In 2011

After an incredible 2010 in which he earned $5.5 million to finish atop Full Tilt’s money list, Daniel “jungleman12” Cates has continued 2011 in the same vein and is already up an impressive $752,362 for the year so far.
Jungleman12 has gained a reputation of being one of the most fearsome No Limit high-stakes heads-up specialist in the world, and on a regularly basis adds to his burgeoning bankroll at the expense of the game’s biggest names.
In the past few days, Daniel Cates couldn’t have proven that point more succinctly after a winning night in which he succeeded in relieving Phil Ivey, Isildur1 and Gus Hansen of $430k of their cash.
First to give up their money was Phil Ivey, who dropped $240k over just 146 hands of $300/$600 HU PLO to “jungleman12” on Full Tilt before their brief session broke up.
Next to take the brunt of jungleman12’s hyper-aggressive game was Danish pro Gus Hansen, although he may have wished he’d chosen an easier opponent to tangle with. After a mere 26 hands of $500/$1,000 PLO, Hansen had more than enough and walked away nursing a $119k wound.
Looking for a further notable scalp to take, Cates then took a stroll over to PokerStars as “w00ki3z” in search of another renowned pro widely touted to be one of the best No Limit Hold’em heads up players in the world.
Roughly mirroring Isildur’s SuperStar Showdown challenge on PokerStars, the duo then settled down to a marathon session of 2,662 hands of $50/$100 NLHE, at the end of which Isildur1 was down $60k.
During their battle, the frustration of his tough opponent finally got to Viktor “Isildur1″ Blom, whose tilting remarks included such gems as “u so bad its embarrassing,”  “such a joke how u play,” and “how can u win so much money.” At the end of their session, Isildur1 apologized for his outbursts before quitting.
After his $403k winning night, Daniel “jungleman12” Cates has now taken his 2011 online earning at Full Tilt to $752,362, even while he stays the course on becoming the site’s top money earner for a second year in a row
