The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a rib shot, head stuff and high-leg back counter to an afternoon poker news high crotch offensive.

Today in the PokerListings Daily 3-Bet we find Tom "durrrr" Dwan taking his biggest loss ever in Macau, Dan "Jungleman12" Cates explaining the state of the durrrr Challenge and his dispute with David "viffer" peat and Ashton Griffin wrestles with 10 years of the high-stakes poker life.
1) Tom Dwan Takes Biggest Loss Ever, Enjoys Tiny Tram
In taiwan for the 1st time ever... Not leaving the airport tho. Maybe next trip. Had my biggest loss ever yesterday— Tom Dwan (@TomDwan) September 24, 2013
If you had to guess what Tom "durrrr" Dwan's "biggest loss ever" might be where would you start?
Given his epic battles with Isildur1 and penchant for random high-stakes gambool it has to be at least seven-figures right? $2m? $3m? $5m?
With the bottomless pockets of the Asian businessmen he's been playing with we'd hate to see what the bottom line on "biggest loss ever" might be, but given his follow-up tweet it doesn't seem to be bothering him too much:
Pocket sized airport tram (I'm touching the other end when I took pic). Amuses me for some reason, not like US ones pic.twitter.com/qsiduLCsNv— Tom Dwan (@TomDwan) September 24, 2013
Someone who might be a little more bothered by it? Dan "Jungleman12" Cates, who's been waiting patiently on durrrr to finish (and pay off) their much delayed durrrr Challenge.
2) Jungleman on durrrr, Viffer: Dwan's Trying, Viffer Scumbag
Speaking of that lingering durrrr Challenge ...
The forums have been buzzing with speculation about the much-derailed challenge over the last few weeks and, specifically in the last few days, over a nasty dispute Cates has with David "Viffer" Peat about their action in the challenge.
Long story short: durrrr agreed to play 4k hands in August, it didn't happen. A new agreement has been signed and Cates feels more confident hands will be played in September.
As for Viffer? Cates isn't a fan, as he explains in our exclusive video shot yesterday in Malta where Cates is preparing for the 2013 PokerListings Battle of Malta:
3) Ashton Griffin Wrestles with High-Stakes Poker Life
We've done some really great, candid interviews in the past but we might have hit a new peak with this one with high-stakes PLO kingpin Ashton Griffin.
One of the biggest PLO winners ever online Griffin has seen ups and downs in his poker career that would, well, cripple weaker human beings.
From losing his entire net worth many times over to supporting his large extended family through poker to running 70 miles in 24 hours in a life-altering prop bet, Griffin has one of the most amazing stories we've heard.
The kicker? He's still only 24 years old. Check out the interview below:
