Daniel Cates and Indian Businessman Clash in $534K Pot at Hustler Casino Live
Hustler Casino Live regularly delights fans of expensive poker games with exciting streams. Since huge amounts of money are constantly being played out there (especially in private games), sometimes there are scandals, as in the recent situation with accusations of using marked cards.
However, this news is not about that, but about the huge pot that Daniel Cates, known as Jungleman, and Indian businessman Santhosh Suvarna played among themselves.

Cates played his usual aggressive style and started this hand by 3-betting preflop with his connectors. The flop suited both players: for Daniel there was an open-ended straight draw, and for Santhosh, in addition to overcards, a jack was now also an out. On the flop, Cates continued his aggression and raised his opponent's bet, increasing the pot.
On the blank turn, Daniel again made a big bet, but Suvarna did not want to give up and kept calling him. And the river gave the nut straight to the Indian businessman, and he happily instantly called Jungleman’s bluff bet.
As a result, the bank amounted to a huge amount of 534 thousand dollars. Santhosh Suvarna is having a really successful year in both cash games and live tournaments. For example, at the series in Rozvadov he won the most expensive event of the festival. And for those who like the aggressive play of Daniel Cates, you can watch him more in the popular Game of Gold show from GGPoker.
