Daily 3-Bet: DNegs 2wks $1m, Ivey Trial By Fire, PokerNight Live

Daniel Negreanu
Still they doubt DNegs?

The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a dog-eared copy of Super/System, a $40 bankroll and a 7-year window to beat the afternoon poker news micro-stakes.

Got a tip for a future 3-Bet? Drop a note in the comments and we'll gladly take a look.

Today in the 3-Bet we find Daniel Negreanu showing just how confident he is in his ability to be a winner in poker, Phil Ivey explains how to get better and the Poker Night in America cameras fire up at Turning Stone.

1) 2 Weeks to Beat $25/$50? DNegs Believes

Six WSOP bracelets. Two WSOP Player of the Year Awards. The #1 spot on poker's all-time live money list. A 20-year career that clearly shows he has what it takes to be a long-term winner.

So when will people stop doubting Daniel Negreanu's ability at the poker table? Apparently never, we guess, as Negreanu was forced to fend off the online haters yet again yesterday.

We won't get into the whole Twitter exchange but in response to some tweets Negreanu sent out about creative poker play the challenge was put out that he couldn't beat $25/$50 6-Max online.

Negreanu's response? Of course he could, given two weeks prep time:

Have people learned nothing from the past, oh, decade or so? Check the whole exchange here.

2) Ivey and Antonius: Learn From Mistakes

The most important thing top pros like Negreanu, Phil Ivey and Patrik Antonius have learned from years and years at the felt in the toughest live games in the world?

There's only so much you can learn from books and videos. You've got to sit, play, lose and build up a mental history of hands, situations and opponents to make better decisions each time you play.

No shortcuts, no easy ways out and no perfect poker sessions. Just perpetual re-thinking of hands you've played. Depressing, isn't it? But all part of the challenge. Watch the latest clip from the Ivey League pros below:

3) Hellmuth v. Laak Gets Poker Night Off to Good Start
