The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a mobile webcam, a 15-min tourney break and no splash guard on the afternoon poker news live stream.

Have something you'd like featured in a future 3-Bet? Drop us a note in the comments.

Today in the 3-Bet we find big changes on the Team PokerStars ladder, Liv Boeree joins the streaming poker hordes on Twitch and a chance for you and a friend to become Kings of Vegas.

1) Duhamel Done at PokerStars

Impact in Quebec was huge.

That happened suddenly. Or at least it seemed to, on the surface.

2010 World Series of Poker Main Event champion Jonathan Duhamel is no longer a Team PokerStars pro according to several media sources.

As recently as the beginning of the month Duhamel was regularly tweeting about his ongoing Team engagements.

However rumors began to swirl this past week when he showed up at the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown without the ubiquitous PokerStars patch.

Duhamel's name and image has been removed from the Team PokerStars team page and any mention of PokerStars removed from his social media accounts.

No statement has been released by PokerStars although they have confirmed the company will "no longer be working" with Duhamel.

Duhamel was a very visible member of Team Pro over the last few years with many notable cashes to his post-ME credit totaling around $4m.

With Duhamel's departure that also leaves just one former WSOP Main Event champion - Chris Moneymaker - on its pro team.

2) Boeree: Won't Make Any Promises About Peeing

Not ruling anything out.

Is it beginning to feel like every poker pro has a Twitch channel yet?

Add PokerStars pro Liv Boeree to the list as she's launched her own Twitch channel and will stream for the first time later tonight.

Boeree joins fellow big-name pros Daniel Negreanu as recent converts to the Twitch platform. Much like Negreanu she can likely expect some pretty big numbers tuning in to watch her play/chat.

Unlike Negreanu, however, she probably won't be taking her viewers to the bathroom with her. You never know, though:
