Daily 3-Bet: Chad Brown Memorial, Kassouf Bingo, Tony G Redux
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is joyous portage across the mid-afternoon poker news landmass while breaking into exuberant song.
You can always make suggestions for future 3-Bet pieces in the comments section below.
In today’s Daily 3-Bet we’ll take a look at the Chad Brown memorial tournament heading to the East Coast, Will Kassouf-style bingo and another look at a classic but contentious poker hand.
1) Chad Brown Memorial Goes East
It’s been two years since poker pro Chad Brown lost his battle with cancer but the poker world hasn’t forgotten.
In one week poker players will gather in Atlantic City for the third annual Chad Brown Memorial Tournament on Nov. 3 at Resorts Hotel.
The $200 buy-in event (with unlimited $100 re-buys) will be hosted by Daniel Negreanu with numerous Team PokerStars Pros expected to be in attendance.
Half the proceeds raised from the event will go to the TJ Martell foundation. PokerStars is also going to throw in a few extras into the prize pool with a $5,000 seat to the PokerStars Bahamas Championship.
This is the first time the Chad Brown Memorial event has been held on the East Coast and organizers are expecting a big turnout considering Brown hailed from NYC.
The first two events have raised over $150,000 for charity.
2) Kassouf Trolls EPT Commentators
So Kassouf-mania is showing no signs of going anywhere.
Will Kassouf has been featured prominently in the EPT Malta coverage and he pulled off a pretty funny trick over the commentators.
Apparently the verbose Brit was playing “Kassouf Bingo” while on air and was ticking of a number of increasingly bizarre phrases.
We’re just happy he finally got some new material!
Here’s a sample of the phrases he used:
3) Would “On Your Bike!” Still Fly in Poker?
Lost in all the discussion of that massive Kassouf/Benger hand is the fact there were some pretty malicious hands back in the day.
Joey “ChicagoJoey” Ingram reminded everyone of a certain Tony G hand on Twitter yesterday that definitely crossed some lines.
How would people react to Tony G’s tirade in a Twitter-filled, social media packed, hot-take culture?
Gonna go ahead and say not well. Not well at all.
What do you think?
What would people say if this took place in 2016 lol pic.twitter.com/rqZpWBTDYe— gN Dr GTO (@Joeingram1) October 27, 2016
