Daily 3-Bet: Cold Master Thrashing, Guo Yeah, Nanogasm

Nano gives in.

The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a light breeze, a gentle jingle and no resistance left for the soothing notes of the afternoon poker news chimes.

Today in the 3-Bet we find Libratus' little brother thrashing in China, Dong Guo showing his chops and Randy "nanonoko' Lew feeling the chimes.

1) Lengpudashi Out Fast

Remember that new 'brother of Libratus' poker AI challenge in China we mentioned yesterday? Things have started off as expected, apparently:

It's also, amazingly, brought in close to a half million concurrent viewers, which ... wow:

While we've given up on the idea we might ever win one of these challenges again (unless, of course, there's a Jungleman involved) getting 500,000 viewers on a live stream of poker players clicking buttons on (and against) a computer is a win in itself.

It probably bodes very well for the launch of GPL China this year, too. Watch the Cold Poker Master put a thrashing on the humans on the live stream right here.

2) Guo Bounces Peters, Crushing PSC Macau

Speaking of both the Global Poker League and China ... we were introduced to poker player Dong Guo this past year via his spot on the Hong Kong Stars of the GPL.

All Systems Guo.

A legend in his own right across poker rooms in Asia Guo stepped up to the challenge of playing some of the best players in the world in the GPL and was a fun watch.

His unorthodox play made the commentators apoplectic at times but he certainly had some highlight reel moments and racked up 20 points for the Stars - just 1 point less than Byron Kaverman did for Sao Paulo.

Back in his comfort zone of Macau Guo is putting on another impressive show as we speak as he's second in chips in the PokerStars Championship Macau main event.

He got yesterday started off right by snapping off David Peters for the chip lead and it's been gravy since as he has 2.16m in chips heading into the final 16 tomorrow.

USD $402,862 waits up top for the winner when action picks up again tomorrow at noon local time. Follow all the action live on the PokerStars blog here.

3) Nano Gives In to Call of Wind Chimes

Again speaking of Global Poker League stars and noteworthy moments, this happened:
