Daily 3-Bet: Colman Rips Dwan, Ivey Marches, Sickest Sunday Ever?

The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is single 5k shove, a bag of chips to go and a long, slow walk right past the afternoon poker news payout cage.

Got a tip for a future 3-Bet? Drop us a note in the comments and we'll check it out.

Today in the 3-Bet we find Dan Colman throwing down the gauntlet on Tom Dwan, Phil Ivey (and some other guys) begin the march to the 2014 WSOP Main Event final table and Pablo Gordillo books a poker sunday for the ages.

1) Colman on Dwan: "He's a Scammer"

Tom Dwan
Internet tides are turning on Dwan over Jungleman Challenge.

Our recent interview with Dan "Jungleman12" Cates about the status of the suspended durrrr Challenge - and Dwan's reluctance to pay up or buy out - has stirred up quite the tempest online.

Shots have been fired on both sides with two flashpoints driving the discussion.

2014 Big One for One Drop winner Dan Colman fired a big one over in the 2+2 forums, responding to a thread with the title "Is It Time to Call Tom Dwan a Scammer?"

Jumping in quickly with just the second response in the thread Colman made it clear which side he stands on with this post:

"I would for sure say he is scamming jungleman, so yea hes a scammer"

The Reddit/poker subforum picked up on it quickly and the ongoing debate has steered between the differences between being a "scammer" and a "reneger" and how enforceable a prop bet might be in court, among other topics.

Needless to say with the money at stake in the Challenge itself, on side-bets related to the challenge and on penalties, this is a very tricky web to unravel. Read our full interview with Cates here.

2) Main Event on ESPN Begins with Ivey and a Stack

Is there any other place you'd rather it begun? There's also plenty of great coverage of 2014 Battle of Malta host Maria Ho.

3) Did Pablo Gordillo Just Have Best Tournament Run Ever?

H/t to Barry Carter at PokerStrategy for bringing this one to everyone's attention.

Spanish player/UK resident Pablo "gordiju" Gordillo had a Sunday in online poker we all dream about most of us don't even dream about yesterday.

Gordillo won the $109 Sunday Kickoff, the Bigger $55 and the $11 Sunday Storm. Total field size for each: 1,737, 5,636 and 35,594 respectively.

Gordillo's total take was *just* $101,060.37 but outlasting that many players to lock down THREE tourney wins is in a completely different galaxy as far as astronomical odds go.

To top it off? He also won the Bigger $22 on Thursday for $10,438. Well played, Pablo. More details on PokerStrategy here.
