Daily 3-Bet: Bilzerian Life, Solid €250k Spin & Go, Ginobili Poker
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a fantastical school bus that runs on the hopes and dreams of the mid-afternoon poker news world.
You can always fire suggestions for future 3-Bet pieces in the comments section below the article.
In today’s Daily 3-Bet we’ll take a look at a Vice writer living like Dan Bilzerian, an incredible €250k Spin & Go win on PokerStars and Manu Ginobili eyeing the poker life.
1) Vice Writer Emulates Bilzerian
You should never attempt to go full-Bilzerian.
That’s a lesson Vice Australia editor Julian Morgans learned after one week of trying to live like the “Instagram King” Dan Bilzerian.
That includes all the Bilzerian standards including girls, guns and protein shakes. Morgans also attempted to play poker, which led to this hilarious passage:
Then I headed to the casino. I looked up how to play poker online and learned that it's boring and complicated, but basically involves matching cards. Match card numbers, match card colors, match shapes, get money.
Pretty much nailed it.

2) Russian Goes Nuts After Winning €250k Spin & Go on PokerStars
What would you do if you lucked out and smashed a PokerStars Spin & Go for €250,000?
That’s what happened to an unnamed Russian player this week and as you might expect he got rather excited.
Fortunately there’s video of the win (narrated by PokerStars’ Mikhail “innerspy” Shalamov) so we all get to come along for the ride.
You can watch it right here.
The buy-in for the Spin & Go was just €25. Second and third place both received a €25,000 consolation prize.
Oh, and the Russian winner's name on PokerStars? Solid Penis.
3) NBA’s Manu Ginobili Talks Retirement, Poker
Is poker is the ideal retirement for athletes?
It’s definitely one outlet for competition that doesn’t require a lot of physical effort (extra-long games aside).
We’ve seen plenty of former pros including Brad Lidge, Ronaldo, Gilbert Arenas and more take to the table and it appears it’s something that Manu Ginobili has thought about.
The big Argentinian recently did an interview with Facundo Campazzo where he talked about poker and narrowly missing out on the WSOP this year.
