PartyPoker Weekly: Tony G Versus Jungleman, WPT Vienna Satellites and More!
Welcome to this week's edition of the PartyPoker Weekly where we bring you news of Tony G's progress at the Aussie Millions, World Poker Tour Vienna satellites now running and a whole lot more. Keep on reading for all the details!
Jungleman Wants To Take On Tony G
In December 2011 Daniel "Jungleman" Cates issued a challenge to the world where he offered to play anyone heads-up if they were prepared to sit down with at least €100,000 and play with blinds of €200/€400. Nobody took him up on that offer so the terms were changed and a ring game was played at the Prague festival. It was much the anti-climax, despite Tony G running his mouth with his infamous smack talking but it appears the challenge may be back on the cards.
Both Tony G and Cates are currently at the Aussie Millions, in fact Tony G just finished fourth in the $100,000 Challenge for $242,000, where during an interview with the pair Cates revealed he was hoping to resurrect the heads-up challenge.
Tony G said, "We want to play a bit of poker here, have a bit of fun. This is not Prague this is Melbourne and there is a lot of money about and I think we'll get a game for the greatest player in the world, Jungleman."
Cates was asked who he would most like to take on if a challenger could be found and he responded by saying he wants to face Tony G because apparently the PartyPoker Pro "talks so much s**t!"

Qualify For WPT Vienna
Last year's World Poker Tour Vienna Main Event was the largest-ever European WPT tournament in history, a title it narrowly lost to WPT Prague in December. Can the Austria capital win attract even more than the 555 who participated last season? If so the €447,840 Dimitry Gromov won for taking down the title in Season 9 could be dwarfed and you could be in with a chance of walking away with a life-changing sum of money thanks to PartyPoker.
From Jan. 23 to Mar. 25 satellites will be running in the PartyPoker lobby that award $7,000 packages to WPT Vienna. Each package consists of:
- The $4,700 WPT Vienna Main Event buy-in
- Hotel accommodation for six nights
- $900 spending money
- PartyPoker's legendary hospitality
WPT Vienna promises to be one of the highlights of Season 10. Will you be there?
