Daniel ‘jungleman12’ Cates Giving Away $10K WSOP Seat

By Ian Hiaring, Rakeback.com Poker News Staff Writer

Daniel 'jungleman12' CatesOK, we have to admit it, when we first saw this here at the Rakeback.com News Headquarters we were a little bit skeptical. But after looking at it a little more closely, we became huge fans of Daniel ‘jungleman12’ Cates.

Cates announced on his blog that he’s giving away one entry worth $10,000 to the World Series of Poker Main Event this summer. This isn’t some sort of backing deal or giving away of shares. This is a seat to the Main Event for whoever wins it.

Cates writes on his blog:

“I had a great idea to show all of the poker fans around the world how much I appreciate them. I decided to give away a $10,000 WSOP buyin to the main event to any poker player who’s never played a Main Event before.  Lately with all the stuff that has been going on, it’s made me think about back when I was playing low stakes in college and made me grateful for all the success I’ve had. It’s made me want to give something back to the average poker player who is where I used to be, and stir some excitement as well.”

The details are simple. Follow Cates’ Twitter feed and he’ll announce a time and a location to meet him to get a ticket. This ticket is for a simple raffle and the winner will be picked in a drawing to be held on June 25th.

Cates just arrived in Las Vegas and will be there through the end of the WSOP in July so it stands to reason that you’ll need to be in Las Vegas to meet up with him to receive your ticket(s).

The only real rule to the raffle, other than the obvious things such as being 21 years old, etc… is that you have to have never played in any WSOP Main Event to be eligible.

You won’t need to be present at the June 25th drawing to win.

You can read all about the giveaway on Cates’ blog. There’s even a YouTube video from Cates in which he explains the contest in further detail. See below.
