Did Poker Pro Daniel Cates Hire Hitman to Try and Off Noah Boeken?

Poker pro Daniel Cates engaged in an online chat with fellow pro Noah Boeken whereby he suggested the hiring of a hitman

The threat came moments after Cates accused Boeken of account sharing with Finland pro Patrik Antonius.

“Just don’t send me a hitman for Christmas,” the Dutch pro Boeken told Cates, to which Cates responded that it was “tempting”.

But, as PokerStategy.com alludes to, clearly there was something sinister that had transpired in the past whereby Cates notes during the chat that he knew nothing about “that guy”.

From PokerStrategy.com:
Clearly there was an incident involving a mutual acquaintance of the two players, but quite what happened and who "that guy" will probably remain unknown.
However, what is clear is that Cates and Boeken don't have too much love for each other.

That might just be the understatement of the year. 

PokerStrategy also posted a portion of the chatbox conversation that further mentions this elusive “hitman”.

Cates: "Hey add me on Skype and we can play later also."

Boeken: "Rather not, you'll probably hack me."

Boeken: "You and your hacker friends. And your hitman."

Cates: "I've never hacked anyone."

Cates: "I'm tempted to report you and push for my money back."

Boeken: "Whenever you lose you just think people cheat."

Cates: "You admitted Patrik played."

Boeken: "You played so ***** bad that day my sister would have beaten you."
