American professional poker player Dan (Jungleman) Cates became the latest name to invest in esports organization QLASH. Cates recently won his first World Series Of Poker bracelet. The move sees Cates become the latest poker personality to invest in the squad, joining Daniel Negreanu, Phil Hellmuth and Jeff Gross. QLASH was founded in 2017 by two former professional poker players: Luca Pagano and Eugene Katchalov. “The gaming and esports industry is constantly growing and, with further reflection, I believe it can be used for people to learn experientially,” said Cates. “It’s a business with a lot of potentials. I believe QLASH is a strong investment and I’m sure there are many strategic partnerships we can do and provide value”.
