Poker Pros: Desperate Times Call for Desperate Measures

Some of those poker pros whose money has been frozen in Full Tilt Poker are resorting to cheating and desperation overhauls of bankrolls.  Case in point:  Daniel Cates.

The disgraced pro was recently cited in a multi-tabling scheme involving Portuguese player Jose Macedo. 

The website Poker.it reports that Cates has earned some $7 million playing high stakes poker at the now defunct Full Tilt Poker room.  Presumably Cates kept a chunk of that money on the site.  He even tried to relocate to Canada recently in an effort to start playing again and possibly recover some of those funds but was turned back by Canadian Customs Agents.  

Fellow poker player Danny "d2themfi" Isaacso claims that Cates told him he sold 85 percent of his bankroll to an unnamed player.
