Daily 3-Bet: Seidel = The Man, Cristiano 777, May the 4s Be w/ You

Erik Seidel
The Man.

The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a mini-cam, a golf-ball retriever and 2 minutes of breathless afternoon poker news light saber training you won't forget.

Have something you'd like to see featured in a future 3-Bet? Tell us below.

Today in the 3-Bet we find a group of young pros paying proper respect to an icon, a soccer mega-star gets with the poker program and a surprising amount of Star Wars poker mashups.

1) Best. Poker. Photo. Ever.

We can't not start off today with one of our favorite poker photos ever:

In case you missed it over the weekend Seidel beat budding Polish superstar Dzmitry Urbanovich heads-up to win the 100k Super High Roller at the EPT Grand Final, affirming yet again that he's one of poker's perpetual reigning bosses.

Even more heartwarming, the young guns of the Polish poker scene paid homage by requesting an awe-inspired photo with him.

With over $24m in earnings and a 25+ year poker career we're sure Seidel has dozens of fantastic poker memories but the undying respect of a group of kids from halfway across the world who weren't even born when his career began?

That's pretty priceless, no? Check the fantastic recap of the event and photo here.

2) Cristiano Ronaldo: Next Big Poker Crossover Star?

We've got Rafa. And Brazilian Ronaldo. Neymar's apparently also keen to come into the fold.

Is one of the world's most popular sportsman next? Signs point to yes based on this photo he posted on his own Instagram account, no?

Nice time to have my favourite hand.

3) May the 4s Be With You

We knew Sabbac is ostensibly Star Wars' equivalent to poker, but this being International Star Wars Day we naturally took a quick look to see what other connections there might be.

What we found was, well ... charming? Mostly.
