Daily 3-Bet: Hellmuth Burger, BrokeLivingJRB Rumor, Bulldozer!
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is the special secret sauce for the mid-afternoon poker news world burger but we’ll never give out the recipe.
Chip in your own 3-Bet ideas in the comments section below.
In today’s 3-Bet we’ll take a look at Phil Hellmuth starring in a Carls Jr. ad, Jean-Robert Bellande’s new ride and one of the all-time greatest WSOP characters.
1) Hellmuth Snags National Carls Jr. Spot
Say what you will about Phil Hellmuth but he’s still able to grab mainstream attention better than almost any other poker player.
According to a recent Tweet Hellmuth will appear in a national advertisement for burger joint Carls Jr.
Numerous celebs have shilled for Carls Jr. in the past including Paris Hilton, Terell Owens and Kate Upton.
While Hellmuth remains a part of poker’s unofficial big three (along with Phil Ivey and Daniel Negreanu) it’s somewhat surprising he keeps getting these types of opportunities with very little exposure on the poker circuit and no online poker room sponsor.
On the other hand the “Poker Brat” persona is something the mainstream audience still associates with poker pros. Hellmuth has certainly cultivated a unique look and apparently it’s good enough to get that sweet burger money.
Speaking of which, how would you market a Phil Hellmuth-themed burger? Brat Burger? Bacon Hellmuth Jr.? The Big Phil?
The possibilities are endless.
2) Jean-Robert Bellande Drives a Bentley?
Now on to that other poker player who has worked wonders with the media.
Jean-Robert Bellande, affectionately referred to as BrokeLivingJRB, posted a picture of a Bentley with the vanity license plate “JRBROKE”.
We’re not exactly sure what to make of it, maybe he takes that license plate with him and sticks it to expensive cars, or maybe you can get a great deal on Bentley leases these days.
For a guy that claims to be broke, Jean-Robert Bellande has done alright for himself.
Check the picture below and come to your conclusions:
3) Hevad Khan Goes Full Bulldozer at 2007 WSOP
It’s true the 2014 WSOP is barely six weeks away.
That means it’s time to start getting amped for the biggest poker event in the world. What better to get you started than possibly the most excited player in the history of the WSOP.
We’re talking about the Red Bull chugging, bulldozer shouting, Lambeau-leaping Hevad Khan.
While Khan hasn’t been seen in the poker industry for a few years he won’t be forgotten any time soon.
