Daily 3-Bet: Gus v Daniel, Amanda v Trishelle, Ones to Watch

The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is three unheralded blue-chippers plucked from the masses of overhyped flops eating up space on the afternoon poker news draft boards.

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

Today in the 3-Bet we find Gus Hansen and Daniel Negreanu taking pot shots at each other over Twitter, Survivor’s Amanda Kimmel and The Real World’s Trishelle Canatella’s new reality show trailer and the WPT profiles its players to watch for Season XI.

1) Gus Pokes Daniel, Daniel Pokes Gus

Remember that super sick hand on Season 5 of High Stakes Poker when Gus Hansen hit quads with pocket fives and wins $300k from Daniel Negreanu, who had a full house with pocket sixes?

Gus does, of course, and took a moment to gently remind Daniel about it this morning with a playful rib and an offer of a rematch:

Negreanu’s response? More than fair enough given Hansen’s $780k downswing on FTP so far in 2013:

If the two do hope to resume the battle they’ll have to wait for Gus to wrap up his match at the Copenhagen Bridge Invitational where he's plying his game wares at the moment. Watch it live via Bridge Base Online, if that's your bag.

2) Living the Life Trailer Debuts

Remember that Amanda Kimmel/Trishelle Canatella reality show we mentioned that was filming last year at EPT Barcelona?

The loose concept, if we remember correctly, was the two "semi-pro" poker players hit the poker circuit as a duo and see what lewdness/conflict arises.

By the looks of the trailer that's surfaced, seems like that's about what happened. Haven't heard much about it since, though, so if you're a fan watch it closely as it could could be all you get:

3) Meet the WPT Season XI Ones to Watch

The WPT’s Season XI Players to Watch were introduced earlier this year with a great list of names.

Shaun Deeb, Jason Somerville, Brian Hastings, Xuan Liu, Amanda Musumeci, Jason Koon, Dee Dozier and A.P. Phahurat are the chosen ones and it's hard to argue with any of the picks -- all great players and personalities in their own right.

If you're unfamiliar with any or all of them, a new introduction video was released by the WPT today to help put some faces to the names.

Watch the vid below; catch the latest episodes from Season XI every Sunday on Fox Sports Net at 8 pm and 11 pm local time.
