In his usual keep-it-classy style Dan “Jungleman” Cates got into a verbal altercation with the blonde bomber Victor “Isildur1” Blom whist in the heat of battle the other day.
Here’s the chatlog (which comes from HighStakesDB, according to Cardplayer):
jungleman12: i cant describe how annoying it is to lose tyou viktor
Isildur1: 2 pair
Isildur1: too easy
Isildur1: eat this
Isildur1: u suck
Isildur1: easy money
Isildur1: gus on the other hand
jungleman12: pay your debt scumbag
According to an interview Cates conducted with Cardplayer, Blom (like everyone) owes Cates some cash. $100k to be exact.
Well, I was kind of tilted at the point. It’s not really a secret that he owes me some money. He owes me like a little over $100,000, but he’s been making some small payments here and there. He’s going to give it back to me, it seems, but it’s taking some time and it’s a little frustrating. He has borrowed money before on multiple occasions and paid back for those.
Cates on Blom’s skill level:
I mean, he is one of the only high-stakes players who doesn’t user Poker Tracker, study the game, or run simulations and things like that. He’s really an anomaly in that way. He knows what he’s doing apparently. He like copies off what he sees from other people.
Are there hard feelings?
Yeah, it was kind of funny. I thought he was drunk. He was being all emotional afterward and stuff. Yeah, we made up.
It’s a solid interview with a candid Cates that you should take a moment or two and check out courtesy of Brian Pempus over at Cardplayer. (Just don’t click on their Lock Poker links!)
