Daily 3-Bet: Hellmuth Super Bets, Bambi, Bilz & OBJ3, WPT XIV
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is an onside kick, a 65-yard lateral and six superfluous points that shatter the afternoon poker news spread.

Today in the 3-Bet we find Phil Hellmuth on the wrong side of Super Bowl 50, Sam Abernathy hobnobbing with the big guns in Vegas and the World Poker Tour returns to FSN.
1) Hellmuth on Wrong Side of SB50
Poker pros have a long-standing (and well-earned) reputation for big sportsbetting habits.
Are they any good at it? Usually not. But that never stops them, though.
And not even the winning-est WSOP player of all-time is immune to the siren call of a favorite less the points.
Hosting my first Super Bowl party w tons of food & liquor. And betting Carolina -5, Stewart to win SBMVP at 20-to-1 and Gin SBMVP 40-to-1— phil_hellmuth (@phil_hellmuth) February 7, 2016
Hope the food and liquor was good at least.
2) Abernathy, Bilzerian and Beckham Jr. Unite
Speaking of Super Bowl parties ... the current poker "it" girl, Sam "@Bambi" Abernathy, was getting her game on in Vegas for the big event and clearly got the stamp of approval from poker's de facto social media king, Dan Bilzerian.
She may, even, have got the upper hand.
Riding high after her third-place finish and spectacular #shipittomama moment at the Aussie Millions Abernathy has also jumped on the Twitch wagon for some poker streaming. Check her new channel out here.
3) World Poker Tour Season XIV on Fox Sports
The poker world has gone through more than its fair share of changes over the last decade and a half but one thing has remained constant the whole time: The World Poker Tour.
That's some spectacular consistency given the level of tumult and upheaval standard in the poker industry.
The WPT announced it will return to television for its 14th season on the Fox Sports Network starting Feb. 28th with 27 original episodes.
Action begins with three episodes from the massive WPT Choctaw stop and wraps with three from the still-to-play WPT Tournament of Champions. Nine events in total will be covered.
Mike Sexton and Vince Van Patten are back. Host Lynn Gilmartin is back. The Raw Deal segment and its host Tony Dunst, fresh from his runner-up performance at the Aussie Millions, is also back.
It's a tribute to the great production staff and its editing team the game has been showcased so well over all these years and continues to be. Check the full schedule below:
