In today’s Daily 3-Bet we’ll take a look at Samantha Abernathy jumping on a bike, some seriously classy cards and Nolan Dalla ripping online trolls to shreds.

1) Abernathy Starts Epic Ride

The great Samantha Abernathy LV to LA ride of 2016 is underway.

Abernathy kicked off her ride from Las Vegas yesterday in what looked to be pretty good conditions.

It’s all part of a $10,000 freeroll that Bill Perkins gave to Abernathy after making an even bigger bike bet against Dan Bilzerian.

Abernathy is already through 100 miles so everything is looking good so far for #shipittomama. The entire ride is 320 miles and she’s got 72 hours to complete it.

Of course Perkins has an even bigger $1.2m bet against Dan Bilzerian. Bilzerian has just 48 hours to complete the same trip. That bet should take place before the end of the month.

No matter what happens Abernathy is certainly going to look cool. Here’s a quick video of her riding at night with a rather significant amount of glow bands attached.

3) U.S. Playing Card Company Releases $59 Card Set

There’s something of an escalating battle between playing card manufacturers to create the ultimate set of playing cards.

The U.S. Playing Card Company may have just taken the crown with its King Card Playing Set.

The set retails for $59 and includes a deck of gold-foiled Monarch playing cards and case made of natural veg tanned leather secured by a single brass Chicago screw.

The case will develop a naturally darker patina over time giving it a vintage look.

So $60 for a single deck of cards and a case? Pretty steep.

3) Nolan Dalla Rips Poker Stream Misogyny

You ever taken a look at the chatbox on a Twitch.tv or YouTube live stream if a female poker pro is playing?

Calling the comments toxic would be a serious understatement. You’ll generally read something truly horrific within just a few minutes.

It’s just kind of an accepted thing at this point. But why?

Long-time WSOP Media coordinator Nolan Dalla took the time to blast that kind of behavior in a teaser for Inside Poker with Matt Savage on Poker Central this week.
