Today on my Final Table poker radio show, Dennis Phillips and I talked with Daniel Cates, known online as “Jungleman12,” who has roared onto the scene as one of the newest stars of poker.

We talked with Cates about the nose-bleed stakes games he’s been playing against Tom Dwan (The Durrr Challenge) and Isildur1 — $200/400 no-limit, heads-up — from how they schedule the matches to which player he thinks is better, as well as his recent trip to the World Series Of Poker Europe and the differences between playing live and online.

Dennis and I also discussed:

  • my weekend trip to Las Vegas, where I was disappointed to find almost no pot-limit Omaha action
  • whether a casino should have reimbursed a well-known player who was robbed in one of its bathrooms
  • the poker site that’s suing Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi for promising to wear its logo during the main event, but then switching to another site halfway through
  • the St. Louisan who just took down the HORSE tournament at a WSOP Circuit event

Next week on The Final Table, we’ll talk with Brandon Steven, the Wichita car dealer who finished 10th in this year’s WSOP Main Event, making him the November Nine Bubble Boy.
