Fresh off the Labor Day weekend, Poker After Dark returned live on PokerGO for three new nights of “Rumble with Jungle” action. Tuesday night was a $50,000 winner-take-all Sit & Go with Daniel “Jungleman” Cates anchoring the action for his first appearance on the show, but two new PAD vets squared off heads-up before Jason Koon won the title and $300,000.
Koon picked up his first Poker After Dark title and celebrated with saying, “It looks like I just satellited my way into the $200K minimum buy-in cash game tomorrow. It’s a good start to the week, hopefully I win a bunch of money with a crazy, tough lineup, but it’s gonna be a lot of fun.”
The full lineup featured Isaac Haxton, Doug Polk, Frank Kassela and Brian Rast. Cates, Polk, Kassela and Haxton made their first appearance on PAD, while Koon and Rast played in “The Return of Tom Dwan” and “Voices Carry.”
Rast had an early showdown with Polk, where Cates was positive Rast was bluffing.
The first night of “Rumble with Jungle” will be available in the archives within hours on PokerGO under the Event Replays tab. Catch up on all the new episodes of Poker After Dark or the growing archive of the first four seasons.
