Daily 3-Bet: Dwan Wins $275k, MILLIONS Line Up, D-Negs Defense
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a group of hardened roadies that always helps the mid-afternoon poker news rockstars put on a killer show.

In today’s Daily 3-Bet we’ll take a look at a rare Tom Dwan tournament result, a superb line up for the upcoming MILLIONS event and some blind defense strategy from Daniel Negreanu.
1) Dwan Records Rare Cash
A Tom “durrrr” Dwan tournament result is about as rare as they come these days.
That’s why it’s of particular note that Dwan picked up a second-place finish in the HK$500,000 buy-in Super High Roller at the 2017 Macau Billionaire Poker Spring Challenge.
Dwan nearly closed the tournament out but couldn’t out-duel Belarusian Makita “fish2013” Badziakouski who received $420,000 for the win, not to mention a great story.
durrrr had to settle for around $275,000.
It was Dwan’s first cash since 2014, which provides some context as to just how long he’s been removed from the tournament scene.
Johnny Chan, Philipp Gruissem and Guo Dong were among the 151 runners that took part in the tournament.
Maybe Dwan can resume the durrrr Challenge against Dan Cates with his winnings from MBP? Dare to dream.
