Apparently, high-stakes heads-up online specialist, and mortal enemy of Tom Dwan and Doug Polk, Daniel “Jungleman” Cates may know his way around a poker room but not so much around an airport.
Jungle’s pal, Justin “BoostedJ” Smith, posted this text exchange to his Instagram account where, apparently, Cates admits that while he was trying to get to San Jose, Cabo (in Mexico) he ended up at Mineta International Airport in San Jose, CA.
Ladies and gentleman, a fine example of one of my friends. Amazing to be surrounded by these types, I have my moments of reciprocation as well. Biggest heads up poker winner online in the past five years: @junglemandan
It looks as though the One Drop participant was looking to do a little online grind and picked the Mexican hotspot to pick on some players.
Instead, he found himself a couple miles away from Bay 101 instead.
Props to iGaming for landing this one.
