Is there a ballsier TV player than durrrr?

The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a frayed, elbow-patched lucky sweater buried under a pile of afternoon poker news laundry.

Any suggestions for a future 3-Bet, feel free to drop a note in the comments.

Today in the 3-Bet we find the return of NBC’s Poker After Dark (again), Daniel Negreanu explaining his controversial fold at the WPT Championship and Jake Cody’s dirty little WSOP secret.

1) Poker After Dark Cash Game with durrrr, Ivey to Air June 4

Originally rumored to be airing back in March, CardPlayer.com is reporting “a source close to the show” now says the never-before-seen cash game from the Poker After Dark archives will finally air on June 4.

With a $200k min buy-in, the lineup had only truly deep-pocket cash-game players including Phil Ivey, Tom Dwan, Patrik Antonius, David Oppenheim, Eli Elezra and David "Viffer" Peat.

Filmed at Aria in Las Vegas, the show was originally scheduled to air late last year before PAD got shut down in September.

2) Negreanu Explains Middle-Set Fold at WPT Championship

In case you missed it this week, besides dusting off two $100k bullets in the WPT High Roller event Daniel Negreanu also played (and busted) from the $25k WPT Championship.

Prior to his bustout, Negreanu played an interesting hand with JohnnyBax they both tweeted about. Long story short, Negreanu folded middle set on a AJ8dd board. Bax claimed he had aces, but only showed the A.

It naturally spurred some discussion among the armchair Tweeterbacks and Negreanu has answered the call for explanation in his weekly rant.

Getting into WSOP mode, Negreanu also introduced his own free Fantasy Pool giveaway (win 1% of his WSOP take) and talked about his own $25k fantasy draft. He then mentioned laser hair removal.

3) Jake Cody’s WSOP Secret: Party After You Win

With the 2012 WSOP just 72 hours away, if you’re looking for tips on how to get yourself off on the right foot there's no better mentor than Brit Jake Cody.

Cody won the very first open event on the WSOP schedule last year - the $25k No-Limit Heads-Up Championship - for almost $900k, which is pretty much the best World Series of Poker foot you can get off on.

Jake’s secret to success? Waking up at the same times, having the same drinks, a Mickey Mouse hoodie and the idea it’s better to wait until after you win to go out and celebrate.
