Breaking News: Dan Bilzerian leaks that Jungleman is the top pro involved in the new cheating scandal!

Dan Bilzerian posts on Twitter that Dan Jungleman Cates is the Top 7 Pro involved in the ghosting scandal!

Dan Bilzerian has outed the cheating duo in the Bill Perkins story by naming Dan Jungleman Cates as the “super pro of pros” who is involved in the new cheating scandal by ghosting an amateur’s account in a private game with the multi-millionaire poker fanatic!

Dan Bilzerian then went ahead and posted this on his Twitter and Instagram:

The revelation came as a shock to many, the poker community spending the last day and a half trying to work out who the culprits were based on numerous cryptic tweets from Perkins.

Dan Jungleman Cates to Phil Galfond: "I will fucking destroy you"

Perkins had publicly lambasted the ‘top 7 in the world’ pro, claiming he had ghosted one of his opponents in a private online game on an app-based site.

Bill Perkins stated yesterday on Twitter:

“Circumventing the software with team viewer, against friends in an invite only game for 500/1k 1k ante. With a super pro who publicly talks about integrity.”

While many were claiming it must be Daniel Negreanu, or perhaps Bryn Kenney, very few had been pointing the finger at ‘Jungleman Dan’ – with Dan Blitz Bilzerian’s claims coming as a complete shock to many.

More top pros involved according to Joey Ingram

Chief investigator Joey Ingram, who made the Mike Postle cheating scandal public, just posted this:

Jungleman denies the accusations on Twitter

Dan Jungleman Cates to Phil Galfond: "I will fucking destroy you"

Dan Jungleman Cates was quick to respond and denied the accusations publically on his Twitter:

Jungleman has admitted ghosting online 10 years ago though…

What doesn’t t speak at all in Jungleman’s favour though is that he was convicted of ghosting before!

As Vanessa Selbst correctly remembers, Jungleman admitted ten years ago to be one of the players,who have ghosted the account of Portuguese high stakes pro Jose “girah” Macedo.

It is a known fact that Dan Bilzerian and Jungleman can’t stand each other and it is therefore a bit suspicious that Bilzerian was the one making this public.

Perkins, it seems, was completely surprised that Bilzerian had outed Jungleman – though he knew it was Cates who had accepted the offer to ‘ghost’ in the game.

Will this affect the upcoming Galfond Challenge vs Jungleman?

Jungleman has a Galfond Challenge coming up, having lost a mini-match version recently, which afterwards saw Cates promise to ‘fucking destroy’ the Run It Once Poker boss in the rematch.

Quite what Galfond thinks about the news that Cates has been cheating fellow players in such a way may determine whether the match even goes ahead.

There is likely to be much more to this story over the coming days and we’ll bring you the biggest developments as and when they happen.
