Daily 3-Bet: Hellmuth v Colman III, Canseco De-Fingered, Nadia Sharked
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a strange smell, a wobbly joint and a not-quite-ready-for-publication afternoon poker news Vine video.
Have something you want featured in a future 3-Bet? Let us know in the comments.
Today in the 3-Bet we find the Phil Hellmuth/Dan Colman feud taking a new twist, Jose Canseco drops an actual finger in a poker pot and Shannon Elizabeth returns to TV poker.
1) Colman: I Multi-Accounted
As you likely saw last week, One Drop winner Dan Colman took a few pointed jabs in a 2+2 post at Phil Hellmuth and his semi-self-appointed role as poker's "gatekeeper."
Among other things Colman called Hellmuth a "whore" and a "cancer," both to poker and the world, for his self-aggrandizing and embarrassing egomania on and off the poker table.
In short: he's not the type of guy we should feel proud of or Colman thinks we "need" in the poker industry.
Hellmuth proclaimed he was "hurt" by the unprovoked attack; Colman posted again saying he was too harsh and backtracked slightly but still said his point is valid.
Ie. that Hellmuth is a terrible "ambassador" for poker and still needs to answer some hard questions about his role at UB.
Everyone else then went on a tangential Twitter fight about the role famous poker personalities have played in making poker what it is today.
If you're interested in that type of thing, here's where you can watch it all play out.
2) Jose Canseco Loses Finger at Poker Table
So, this happened over the weekend:
Dam I was playing in a poker tournament last night and something crazy happened to my finger that I shot off and they put back on.— Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) November 14, 2014
I knew something crazy was going to happen with this dam finger cause it felt like it was falling off.— Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) November 14, 2014
My finger should have been amputated from the beginning. It was very loose with no bone to connect it.it was also smelling really bad.— Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) November 14, 2014
This guy called my agent and sold him the video.of my finger falling off .it looks kinda funny.lol— Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) November 14, 2014
Dammm I thought the guy was funny meaning kidding just saw the video .OMG— Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) November 14, 2014
I bet a long time ago you could easily loose a finger a hand or even your life in a poker game if you couldn't pay up.— Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) November 15, 2014
