Daily 3-Bet: Broccoli Check-Raise, Mizrachis Tag In, Maria+WiPHoF
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is an almond milk open, a tempeh click-back and a dark-tunnel tofu bluff at the proverbial afternoon poker news pot luck.
Have something you want to see in a future 3-Bet? Let us know about it in the comments.
Today in the 3-Bet we find Daniel Negreanu sizing his broccoli bets, the Mizrachi poker band takes the stage and Maria Ho keynotes the Women in Poker Hall of Fame ceremony.
1) 8oz of Broc Looks Weak
A sure sign you've been playing too much poker this summer?
It starts to take over your dreams in peculiar ways, much like it did to poker icon and noted vegan Daniel Negreanu:
Dreamt that I check raised the river in a 3 way pot with a 7 low and 8oz of Broccoli which beat two pair for high. Asked the guy if he...— Daniel Negreanu (@RealKidPoker) July 6, 2016
Wanted me to measure the broccoli and he said "Nah I don't win that way." Would have had to separate the broccoli from the chocolate pudding— Daniel Negreanu (@RealKidPoker) July 6, 2016
I was trying to move the guy with two pair with the check raise and he called anyway but the broccoli had him best and my 7 beat the 8— Daniel Negreanu (@RealKidPoker) July 6, 2016
All this dream means is that I'm playing too much poker! Hahaha— Daniel Negreanu (@RealKidPoker) July 6, 2016
Or, of course, that 8oz of broccoli just isn't a big enough bet. Prob. need the full crown next time.
As we mentioned yesterday this $1,000 WSOP Tag Team event is setting up to be impossibly intriguing with, at last check, 651 entries already this morning.
Jamie Gold is playing with Montel Williams (the talk show host, not the "This is How We Do It" guy). Jonathan Little is playing with his parents. Daniel Negreanu and Vanessa Selbst, among others, were soliciting potential teammates via Twitter last night.
There's also this amazing Partridge Family-esque entry from one of poker's royal families:
With Michael in the final six of the $50k PPC and Robert in the $25k PLO later the logistics could get a bit tricky for the Mizrachi clan, but with each team member only required to play one orbit before late reg closes it should work out fine.
Once the initial chaos of registration is over it should settle in to one of the more entertaining events of the summer. Follow along with the live updates here!
3) Maria Ho Ushers Coren Mitchell, Burkhead into WiPHoF
While the Tag Team madness takes over the Amazon Room this AM a quieter but much more significant ceremony is taking place across the road at the Gold Coast.
Two-time EPT main event champ Vicky Coren Mitchell and industry stalwart Debbie Burkhead are being inducted into the Women in Poker Hall of Fame.
Our very own Battle of Malta host Maria Ho is on hand to provide the keynote speech and you can watch it streaming live (or on replay) below:
