The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a baritone voiceover, a sax-heavy score and a tear-jerking montage that draws you right in to the afternoon poker news movie of the week.
Got a tip for a future 3-Bet? Drop a note in the comments and we'll gladly take a look.
Today in the 3-Bet we find Tom "durrrr" Dwan alluding to "issues" between himself and Full Tilt Poker, Jamie Gold showing his name still carries a lot of poker weight and Daniel Negreanu pleads for more backstory, less strategy in poker coverage.
He'll speak about it more soon when he's not runnng on three hours sleep, he said.
An email from a Full Tilt rep said the site is not ready to comment on the situation. Here's the interview from Australia:
2) Jamie Gold Brands Again
Despite recent discussions to the contrary 2006 WSOP Main Event champ Jamie Gold is still very much one of the most recognizable - and brandable - names in poker. Maybe not an "ambassador" per se, but undoubtedly a very, very popular name in poker.
3) Negreanu: In with Back Stories, Out with Strategy
We have a feeling this "poker is dying" story will linger for a while but in the interim Daniel Negreanu, perhaps the most vocal/accurate barometer of poker's mainstream pulse, suggests we look to the ongoing Olympics to lead us back to the TV promised land:
Winter Olympics provide a great example. Public doesn't know the people or the sports but with great story telling fans & stars are created.
