Daily 3-Bet: Galfond v. Jungle, HU Home Ed., Gold 4 Relief
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a bumper pool table, a tabletop Qbert and the best little rumpus room in your whole little afternoon poker news town.
Have something you'd like featured in a future 3-Bet? Tell us about it in the comments.
Today in the 3-Bet we find a PLO clash to admire, a piece of poker history to claim and a noble gesture for earthquake relief.
1) Galfond vs. Jungleman
Let's be clear off the top. You will likely never use the strategy advice in this video for your own online sessions, low buy-in tournaments or Friday night home game.
Still. It's always fascinating to hear Phil Galfond break down hands and here he dissects a 4-table session against another one of the game's best, Dan "Jungleman12" Cates.
Click on the picture below to watch the short clip and, while you're there, explore a few more of the RunItOnce training videos while you're at it.
It's not exactly strategy you can use but it's strategy you can admire, for sure - if that makes sense.
2) Heads-Up Texas Holdem in Your Own Home ... with a Machine!
Anyone out there with a knack for fixing large-sized home electronics?
Anyone I know want a broken one of these? Turns on but doesn't boot up properly. Probably fixible by someone handy https://t.co/lDpxinjc8J— Mike McDonald (@MikeMcDonald89) February 8, 2017
This would make a pretty sweet edition to any poker/games room for sure. We assume it would help to be in the Kitchener-Waterloo (Canada) area, but who knows? Watch it in action below:
3) Buy Max Pescatori's WSOP Bracelet to Help Earthquake Victims
The Italian Pirate Max Pescatori has made our Most Inspiring Player nominee list before and his latest undertaking again shows why.
The 4-time WSOP bracelet winner beat Stephen Chidwick and Daniel Negreanu at the final table of the Stud Hi-Lo Championship in 2015 but, even though it's a special memory, he's willing to sacrifice his gold bracelet for the greater good.
Pescatori is auctioning his bracelet off on eBay as we speak to aid earthquake relief in the town of Amatrice, Italy.
After devastating quakes last year left many homeless, heavy snow and more quakes made things even worse this year.
All money raised will go to charitable efforts including buying mobile homes for those who lost everything.
Current bid is just $6,000 USD so if you have a richer poker friend who you think might want to rally around the cause, please pass it along.
Kudos again to Pescatori (and the poker world at large) for continued charitable efforts.
