Dan Cates Aka Jungleman’s Rival Threw A Banana In His All-In Bet?

You think seeing fruits kept on the felts while grinding is weird? No? What if we told you that a poker player threw a banana into the pot along with his all-in bet. All this while grinding against poker dymano Dan Cates aka Jungleman. 

What the actual fuck! Yes, this is what comes to mind, at least for us. This incident happened at Big Bet Poker Live in a hand where Keir Sullivan, a relatively lesser known player locked horns with Dan Cates, a two-time World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winner.

Banana Bluff On The Felt?

When you go up against a two-time Poker Players Championship winner, you at least think twice before committing to some stupidity. But Sullivan just doesn’t get it, does he? No! And we will explain why.

Jungleman played with Queens, and Sullivan had pocket threes. The San Diego player raised to $1,500 preflop from hijack position and Cates was thinking of his move. From under the gun (UTG) Jungleman confidently goes for a 3-bet of $5,200. Cates’ rival calls without wasting any time to see a flop 5h 9d 4d.

Cates opts for a bet of $4,200 and this time too his opponent comes along. The turn brings the King of clubs; both players check the turn to see the river card of 7d. Sullivan is sitting with his bottom pair thinking if his bluff will hold on or be damned by Jungleman. 

Cates bet $14,600 on the river and his rival announced all-in. This is where things get interesting. Sullivan throws in his chips and a banana which he had kept on the felt all this while. Looking at the banana being thrown in the middle, Brian Green said, “Is the banana in play?”

If this was some banana bluff, it failed so miserably that we don’t even want to get started on that. Cates made the call on Sullivan’s $54,100 all-in move after thinking for a bit. This banana thing was termed as the ‘banana bet’ and who cares, but Cates won and Sullivan was out. 

The commentators on the stream did not waste any time in stating that Jungleman’s Queens became the bluff catcher. Bluff catcher and how, even that added banana could not save Sullivan’s ship from sinking into the middle of the ocean.
