The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a late-afternoon old-timey trolley ride around the steep switchbacks of the poker news world.

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

Today in the 3-Bet we get a look into the life of PokerStars Team Online Pro Tyler Frost, catch Herman Cain finally benefitting from his 9-9-9 tax plan and Tom "durrrr" Dwan rebooting his social media efforts.

1) Tyler "Frosty012" Frost Mini-Documentary Up on PokerStars

We're big fans of a) poker and b) mini-documentaries so when you combine the two it's usually something we enjoy.

The latest mini-doc from Team PokerStars Online (following the super solid I Am Nanonoko and talonchick vids) was released today and features Vancouver's Tyler Frost, aka Frosty012.

Centered around his start in poker, his epic grind to keep his Supernova Elite status and how to balance a social life with an online poker career, it's another high-quality look into the life of an online poker pro.

Check it out below; read more about the behind-the-scenes of the filming .


2) Herman Cain Likes Low-End Three-Card Poker

Remember former Republican presidential candidate and Godfather's Pizza magnate Herman Cain?

How could you forget, really, with all of that alleged ass-grabbing and his 9-9-9 tax plan - one of the more, err, creative tax plans ever proposed in a long line of creative tax plans.

As it turns out, 9-9-9 has finally served a purpose for Cain at the three-card poker table.

9-9-9!

Spotted last Thursday night at a $10 three-card poker table at the Wynn, Cain, according to the NY Post, even played to the crowd and tossed out a “Give me a 9-9-9" before actually hitting it for a win.

The Post even got this quip from Cain's spokeswoman about if after the fact:

“9-9-9 is not only a winning tax plan, it is also a winning poker hand."

Well, not really. But sure.

3) durrrr Back on Twitter, Feeling Good About FTP Deal?

After months of being off the radar, Tom "durrrr" Dwan resurfaced today with a new Twitter handle (@tomdwan) and what looks like a renewed attempt to get back on the social media horse.

Coincidentally, the Full Tilt Poker/FTP deal is supposedly set to go down within the next week or so, according to the latest reports from Bernard Tapie Group lawyer Behn Dayanim.

Random happenstance? Probably. durrrr mentioned he lost his Twitter password a while ago and needed the help of poker media guru @whojedi to get it sorted.

Still, speculation has already started that durrrr is ready to get back in the spotlight now that the FTP deal is set to go through.

Complete and utter unconfirmed speculation? Sure. But we’ll take it at this point.

And one day soon we hope to see durrrr back on TV, doing stuff like this:
