Daily 3-Bet: Blubbering Phil, DNegs Tearjerker, Rice Farm > Poker
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a poignant sunrise, a sweeping orchestral crescendo and no stopping the chest-heaving sobs at the afternoon poker news cineplex.
Got a tip for a future 3-Bet? Tell us what it is and where to find it in the comments.
Today in the 3-Bet we find Phil Hellmuth polarizing the SHRB audience, Kid Poker brings out the waterworks and Ana Marquez heads for the paddies.
1) 6 Aces, 1 Manchild
Think Phil Hellmuth's incessant banter on the Aria Super High Roller Bowl stream/broadcast yesterday was a little polarizing?
Check out a few of the responses from pros and fans, highlighted by this spectacularly composed tweet from pro Isaac Haxton:
Tune in to @PokerCentral tomorrow to watch six of the best poker players in the world and a blubbering manchild compete for $15m!— Isaac Haxton (@ikepoker) June 1, 2016
, @olivierbusquet Only your families would tune in and watch you and your 6 friends play poker!— Brandon Cantu (@brandoncantu) June 1, 2016
@olivierbusquet your obviously correct but its probably great for the poker economy, 1st time Ive been glued to poker on tv in years— Jareth (@spursfan85) June 1, 2016
Say what you want about him, there is NO ONE more entertaining to watch than @phil_hellmuth— Andy Frankenberger (@AMFrankenberger) June 1, 2016
Anyone who can't find the entertainment value in what @phil_hellmuth is doing right now in the #SHRBowl is crazy... Must see PokerTV— Uncle Rick (@Richie_Menlo) June 1, 2016
As luck would have it we get another dose of Phil today - at least for a while - as he made the final table with the short stack. Check the stream on Poker Central's Twitch channel starting at 6 pm ET.
2) Kid Poker on Netflix; Prepare for Tears
The long-awaited wide release of Daniel Negreanu's Kid Poker documentary has finally come to Netflix, at least for viewers in the US, Canada, UK, Australia and New Zealand.
If you're in the mood to be inspired and/or cry a little bit this afternoon, looks like you're in luck:
@RealKidPoker Touching, motivating & inspiring! Choked up a couple times throughout, tbh. Love the bond/unity you have within your own fam!— LauranceEssak (@Laurance_Essak) June 1, 2016
@RealKidPoker Inspiring documentary that triggered real emotion, you can feel your love for the game and others from a mile away.— Ice Cold (@RealJakeLipton) June 1, 2016
@RealKidPoker has always been my idol, but man his documentary was one of the best things I've seen in a while. Wow!— JoeyG (@JGove0727) June 1, 2016
3) Or ... There's Always Rice Farming
If, on the other hand, you're not really feeling poker at the moment, at least you have a cohort in former PokerStars pro Ana Marquez:
I am quitting poker forever to become a rice farmer #byebye— Ana Marquez (@AnaMarquez86) June 1, 2016
We're not sure if she's serious or not, but we've certainly felt the same a few times.
