I found this:

The cat (El gato) is one of the many former Magic the Gathering players who moved on to dominate online poker. The cat plays the highest stakes pot limit omaha games online from 25/50 up to 200/400 PLO, where he wins and loses millions. He often multi-tables on both Full Tilt Poker (KatBuxxe) and Poker-Stars (RealCheshire) at the same time.

Although the cat is young, he’s been both a millionaire and broke several times over, through online poker. His largest win to date is $2.1 Million in July, playing the 200/400 PLO games as KatBuxxe on Full Tllt.

The cat got his start playing limit holdem online, moving all the way up to 300/600, which was the highest limits at the time. Then he started playing Pot Limit Omaha on Full Tilt and decided to focus on that game from then on. He actually worked his way up from 10/20PLO to 200/400 simply by taking shots at the higher games. He ran well and then just settled at the top.

Even though the cat plays very well, he’s shown to practice little to no bankroll management or table selection online. You might see lose $500,000 one session, but then win $750,000 the next. So don’t be surprised to see him drop down a couple limits one day to rebuild.

However, despite his lack of game selection, the cat’s loose, aggressive, and fearless playing style loosens up tight tables and creates plenty of action for him. He’s able to control tables by forcing other players to adjust to his style.

I am pretty sure it was originally a dog in that picture. Nice MSPaint.

if you ever had a cat you would know that even if there back legs were to hit the cabinets below it would still be able to pull itself up onto the counter; thus making the jump.

These are difficult jumps but the cat still easily makes it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=07Wft...eature=related.

Outside of YouTube, I have never seen a cat fail a jump (and I have a cat myself). If you saw that photo without the stupid text around it, you would simply assume it made the jump. Cats are awesome.

Cat

/results?

Did PA have anything to say about the cat? How could you beat a cat HU imagining such a thing was possible? Any leaks common to felines? Would it be possible to train a cat to attack David Williams on sight?

I can't believe that they have Barry G, Doyle, Todd and whoever not on TV.

Cat won't make it clean, but will climb up.
