Dan "jungleman12" Cates showed why he is considered one the finest poker talents alive with anothe great display at Full Tilt's 8-Game tables

Once again the high stakes mixed game tables over at Full Tilt were alive with action throughout the entire day yesterday. In fact, they are still running after more than 27 hours.

The biggest winner from the games which started yesterday was Daniel "jungleman12" Cates, who put in a good 26 hours at the tables, punctuated only by a one hour break between 7.09pm and 8.18pm.

Cates had an indifferent first few hours, only starting to go into any significant profit after 9.5 hours play. A four hour afternoon session, however, put Cates firmly in control, winning over half a million dollars. With four six figure sessions, including two of more than $270k, jungleman12 eventually finished yesterday's sessions with a $677.4k profit. Over the entire session, however, he is up $563k, as he lost $113.6k in sessions which started after midnight.

This latest win, after playing for hours against the likes of Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond, Viktor "Isildur1" Blom, Gus Hansen, Alex "PostflopAction" Kostritsyn, Niki Jedlicka, Seb86, samrostan, and Osama_no_Brunch, puts jungleman12 up close to $3m for the year, and over $10m lifetime at Full Tilt's high stakes tables.

The other big winner from yesterday's sessions was PostflopAction who recovered from a $250k afternoon deficit, to end the day up $152.4k.

Gus Hansen came off the worst from yesterday's games, dropping over $395k. It was a tough day for The Great Dane, as at one point he was up over $500k for the day before suffering a $900k downswing in the afternoon and evening sessions. After continuing to play way after the 24 hour mark, Hansen is currently winning today, so we'll see tomorrow if he is able to sustain his win this ime.
