Jungleman offering a WSOP ME seat for a first-time player

This just popped in my inbox:

Quote:
I wanted to let you know that Daniel Cates decided to do something really nice. He is buying one person into the Main Event. He will be tweeting (@junglemandan) his location around Vegas at least once per week starting next week and running through June 25th. People will pick up a ticket from him at each location and a winner will be drawn. It's free to join, no signups or anything and the only stipulation is that they can't have played in the Main Event before. He is also throwing in lessons and best of all, not taking a percent from any of the winnings.
I know he and Sam Chauhan were talking about this earlier in the week on the Quad Jacks cast, but there should be more mention of this on tomorrow's Inside Deal over at ESPN.com and elsewhere around Vegas.

The contest just ended and they announced a winner. Some guy from Portugal named Jose Girah. Anyone know anything about him?
