Daily 3-Bet: $970k at 25c/50c, Online Shot Clock, Dan's G4 v 250k
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a stack of hundos, a celebratory entourage and immediate access to the special reserve afternoon poker news party room.
Got a tip for a future edition of the 3-Bet? Let us know about it in the comments.
Today in the 3-Bet we find the 10th Anniversary Sunday Million winner showing off his new bankroll, WSOP champ Martin Jacobson wants to speed up online poker and Dan Bilzerian's $600k bike bet just got bigger.
1) 25c/50c Limit Anyone?
When you outlast a field of 55,059 entries to win the 10th Anniversary Sunday Million for $970,000, there's no telling where you might land in the next 24 hours.
Immediate tropical vacation at a 5-Star resort? Veyron shopping at the local Bugatti dealership? Throwing $20s around at the nearest strip club?
Or perhaps the most "poker player" of poker player responses: Sitting at 25c/50c Limit with the bossiest bankroll at the table.
Well played, a.urli. Well played. Btw we also asked him for an interview in the chat and he declined, saying "no interviews until he hits $1m."
2) Jacobson: Can We Speed Up Online, Too?
One of the ongoing debates in live tournament poker over the past few years has been the proliferation of pointless tanking.
Another place poker could spare to speed up? Even in the fastest version available, according to 2014 WSOP Main Event champ Martin Jacobson:
Isn't it time we adjust the shot clock format for online poker as well, in order to reduce excess tanking and speed up the game?— Martin Jacobson (@Martin_Jacobson) March 23, 2016
Something like 5 sec to act before time bank kicks in (with added sec each level) will force players to be more time conservative.— Martin Jacobson (@Martin_Jacobson) March 23, 2016
Right now, a hand which ends with a walk could potentially take 4 min without anyone loosing a sec of their time bank.— Martin Jacobson (@Martin_Jacobson) March 23, 2016
3) Bilzerian Bike Bet Builds to Near $1m
He's already got $600k on the line for his 300-mile Las Vegas-LA bike bet. Now he's got his private jet on the line, too.
Just bet Rick my G4 vs his 250k. If I die or get brain dead he wins, if I bike 300miles, I win, almost a mil on line pic.twitter.com/HQdNk0uXVF— Dan Bilzerian (@DanBilzerian) March 23, 2016
The "Rick" in this one, we assume, is fellow poker fringe player Rick Salomon. The definition of "brain dead" in this case, we imagine, is literal, not figurative.
