Daily 3-Bet: FullFlush SCOOPs, Trickett Rides Again, Ivey WSOP Bluff
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a cheap but high-revving hatchback that you can really throw into the twists and turns of the mid-afternoon poker news highway.
Feel free to hit us up with suggestions for future 3-Bet pieces in the comments section below.
In today’s Daily 3-Bet we’ll take a look at some notable online pros doing what they do best, Sam Trickett getting a nice surprise and one of Phil Ivey’s all-time best WSOP bluffs.
1) Schwartz, Whitelime, SirWatts Win SCOOP Titles
It’s been one heck of a SCOOP for big-name online poker pros.
Luke “FullFlush” Schwartz, Emil “Whitelime” Patel and Mike “SirWatts” Watson all picked up SCOOP titles yesterday.
Patel, who plays on PokerStars as Maroonlime, was the biggest winner overall taking down a $2,100 PLO 6-Max Event for $98k after refusing a deal three-handed.
Schwartz wasn’t far behind however as he earned $69k for winning the $1,050 PL 5-Card Hi-Lo 6-Max event while playing on his lb6121 account on ‘Stars.
Finally Watson outlasted a small-but-tough field in a PLO 6-Max w/Optional Rebuy to secure a $58k payday.
That’s all in addition to Jason Mercier’s and Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier who have been livestreaming, winning titles and breaking records.
Who’s next? At this rate Tom Dwan and Viktor Blom will be taking down titles in the near future.
2) Sam Gets His Groove Back
Remember that horrific car accident where Sam Trickett totaled his beautiful cherry red Ferrari 458 Spider?
Well it appears it wasn’t completely wrecked. Trickett posted a photo of his newly returned Ferrari yesterday and it looks brand new.
Trickett seemed understandably excited as he used seven smiley face emoticons.
Personally we want to see that repair bill.

3) WSOP Throwback: Ivey Bluffs Opponents into Oblivion
You can’t talk about the WSOP without mentioning heavy hitters like Phil Ivey, Phil Hellmuth and Daniel Negreanu.
Ivey pulled off one of his best bluffs ever at the 2008 Main Event when he somehow managed to get not one but two opponents to lay down the best hand in a large pot.
Suffice to say it’s Ivey at his best and definitely worth checking out with the 2015 WSOP not far off.
