Daily 3-Bet: Hellmuth Snub, Hellmuth Rage, Most Insane Hand Ever

Phil Hellmuth
Phil Hellmuth, greatest leveler of all time.

The PokerListings 3-Bet is an exposed hand, a rivered full house and still someone willing to shove on you with the second afternoon poker news nuts.

Got a tip for a future 3-Bet? Drop a link in the comments and we'll gladly take a look.

Today in the 3-Bet we find Phil Hellmuth left hanging on Twitter by LA Clipper Chris Paul, revisit some classic bad beats and Hellmuthian rage and make ourselves feel better about our own poker games.

1) CP3 Leaves Hellmuth Hanging

We truly do love Phil Hellmuth and his amazing mash-up of humility, White Magic and schizophrenic egoism but we really can't tell just how much of what he does/thinks is straight leveling or not anymore.

Courtside at the Golden State Warriors-Los Angeles Clippers game last night (courtesy of pal and GSW owner Joe Lacob) Phil shared what he told injured Clipper point guard Chris Paul:

Did he really tell basketball's best point guard he was "proud" of him? Does Chris Paul have any idea who the guy in the awkward length leather coat is? Did he really make a gangsta plural with a "z?"

We just don't know, and truth be told we don't really want to. It's just too much fun to watch. Needless to say, Paul has not tweeted back.

2) This is Hellmuth

In case Phil needs some reminding, this is his peer group. Not the greatest athletes in the world - no matter how close you sit to the court. Also, the cuts of Lon's "ohhhhhhhs" are great in this one.

3) COMO!!?? Alfredo AYYYY!!!!!

As you get ready for your home games later tonight here's an enjoyable reminder that there's always someone more confused than you out there willing to give you their money. Just watch out for three parsleys on the flop.
