The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a blank whiteboard, a fresh sharpie and a hand-drawn hyperlapse of afternoon poker news' life story.

Got a tip for a future 3-Bet? Drop us a note about it in the comment.

Today in the 3-Bet we find the SHRPO Big 4 reaching its climax, Pamsi immortalizes Fedor and poker players take to the skies for EPT Barcelona.

1) Big 4 Incoming in So. Fla.

While much of the international poker world is busy taking winery tours and parasailing in the Alps, US grinders have been on the grind again down in South Florida.

The action will be be fantastic and you can watch it all play out tomorrow right here.

2) Drawing Fedor, Pamsi Style

Her content relationship with the Global Poker League may have been shortlived but Argentinian YouTube sensation Pamsi is still a huge poker fan and still doing her thing on the intertubes.

Her latest project is a pretty fun one, actually - drawing the lives of some of the world's best poker players.

Her premier subject? Everybody's favorite player right now, Fedor Holz. Check it out below. Submit your ideas for players she should draw, too.

3), Barcelona, Ahoy!

That long summer stretch between the World Series of Poker and the start of the next EPT Season is finally, almost, over.

The Red Spade has been beamed into the sky and the continent's best talents are beginning to wing their way to the beaches of Barca as we speak.

Action begins Wednesday, which feels almost too good to be true; check a preview below!
