Daily 3-Bet: Bieber Grinds £200, Untold Stuey, Dima v. Kanit
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a grey beanie, some ripped skinny jeans and a double-take worthy punter at the afternoon poker news cash games.

Today in the 3-Bet we find Justin Bieber (!) grinding Leicester Square, Phil Hellmuth remembers Stu Ungar's memory and a marquee heads-up clash in the GPL.
1) Biebs Gets Some Hands In
Had he known the 888poker London Festival was happening at the Aspers, we're sure he would have been there instead.
As it was, though, after playing sold-out shows at the O2 arena on Friday and Saturday, the Daily Mail reported the Biebs unwound with some Texas Holdem at the Empire Casino in Leicester Square in the early hours Monday.
The buy-in? Usually £200 for that game, although an onlooker told the Mail he couldn't confirm what the Biebs bought in for.
'He was quiet in general,' he said, 'and kept himself to himself.'
Who knew? Somebody at 888 should throw a buy-in his way and see if he'll take a stab at the main event at Aspers on Thursday.
One day, perhaps, we'll even see Bieber v. Aaron Paul in a Global Poker League LA/London throwdown.
2) Hellmuth: "Best Gin Player, Bar None"

We're releasing a few extra soundbites from our interviews over the next few weeks to satisfy those Stu cravings; here's Phil Hellmuth recounting a story Chip Reese told him about Stu's uncanny memory:
3) Urbanovich v. Kanit, Jungleman v. Bonomo
Normally it's a Jungleman heads-up match that gets the fans all hot and bothered but the middle match in the Global Poker League today also has people buzzing.
Two of the hottest young stars in the game in Dzmitry Urbanovich (Moscow Wolverines) and Mustapha Kanit (Rome Emperors) step up to battle for playoff positions for their teams in the ultra tight EurAsia Conference.
The nightcap is indeed the return of the Jungleman and his F-bombs as he'll try to secure a playoff spot for the Berlin Bears vs. London's Justin Bonomo. Behold:
