Daniel ‘Jungleman12’ Cates Throwing Chips After Jeff Rossiter

It isn’t fun losing in poker, especially in the bigger tournaments. It is even less fun with you do so twice by getting in with kings pre-flop and see the opponent have AA. It is even less fun if you struggle with your temper and being able to control yourself. We’re guessing that Daniel ‘Jungleman12’ Cates didn’t have much fun in the Aussie Millions $100,000 Challenge.

The tournament is a re-entry format with the steep buy-in of $100,000, so Cates wasn’t happy busting out the first time around when he got all-in with Kings against Steve O’Dwyer’s AA, who had flopped quads, but these things can happen in poker.

After paying another $100,000 to play again, Cates had a hand with Jeff Rossiter, which will probably go into the history books on how not to act at a poker table. The two players gets all-in pre-flop and Cates once again has Kings against Rossiter’s Aces. When Rossiter flipped around his aces, Cates tilted and shouted “Are you f***ing kidding me??!!?” and then threw his cards against Rossiter across the table.

But this was not the worst part, as Cates saw the board run out TrTk3r3h5k and Rossiter winning the hand, Cates lost his mind and grabbed a handful of chips and threw them at Rossiter. Even though only a few of them actually hit Rossiter, it is far from how to act at a poker table which is something Cates should know.

Pokernews.com who reported the incident originally said that Rossiter took the incident with a cool attitude, without making a scene or freaking out about it. The whole thing ended with Cates steaming out on the rails and he will probably re-evaluate  how he acted later.
