Daily 3-Bet: 33-Hour Blitz, 2016 Battle of Malta Deals, Just Fooling
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a beacon of truth in a minefield of pranks in the mid-afternoon poker news world on April 1.
You can always shoot suggestions for future 3-Bet pieces in the comments section below.
In today’s Daily 3-Bet we’ll take a look at Dan Bilzerian officially getting his due, some early bird specials for the Battle of Malta and some April Fool’s shenanigans.
1) Bilzerian Goes LV-LA in 33hrs
It’s official. Dan Bilzerian rode a bicycle from Las Vegas to Los Angeles in 33 hours and will be getting paid at least $600,000 from Bill Perkins for completing the ride.
The NY Post published a feature today that went into detail about the ride and cleared up the controversy surrounding “drafting.”
Perkins claimed that Bilzerian was only behind the van for about five hours and considering he finished the bet with time to spare he would have won anyways. He will be paying up the $600k.
It might be a different story for Rick Solomon who had $250,000 against Bilzerian completing the ride. He’s reportedly still trying to invalidate the bet.
How’s Bilzerian doing anyways? According to Perkins he’s in rough shape with chaffed buttocks, chills, wobbly legs and a virus. Bilzerian apparently called it “The worst bet of his life.”
Still, that $600k in the bank has got to help you feel a lot better about the ordeal.
