Daily 3-Bet: Hellmuth vs. 50, Kanu vs. Mountain, Gigi vs. Poker
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a woolen suit, a wood-handled ice axe and just the right Sherpa to navigate the afternoon poker news Khumbu icefall.
Want something lncluded in a future 3-Bet? Drop a note in the comments and we'll gladly take a look.
Today in the 3-Bet we find Phil Hellmuth fighting the good fight against growing old, Alex "kanu7" Millar faces off against the mountain of online poker success and something oddly hilarious called Gigi: Almost American careens into poker.
1) This is 50; So Far So Good
Legend of the game. Semi-reformed Poker Brat. Phil Hellmuth Version 2.
Whatever you want to call him there's very little arguing that at a newly minted 50 years old, Phil Hellmuth might be at the full height of his White Magic powers.
Only downside to turning 50? If he wins his 14th bracelet next year in the WSOP Seniors Event, will it count? And will he get any POY points?
Happy Birthday to Phil and many happy returns.
This is what it feels like to be 50 years old? Hmmm...Feels like nothing's changed!— phil_hellmuth (@phil_hellmuth) July 16, 2014
TY to all of my friends and followers for the outpouring of 50th birthday good cheer and #POSITIVITY via text, Twitter and Facebook!— phil_hellmuth (@phil_hellmuth) July 17, 2014
Happy 50th Birthday @phil_hellmuth "The Poker Brat" Hope you and the family have a great day free of Northern Europeans bluffing you! :-)— Daniel Negreanu (@RealKidPoker) July 16, 2014
2) Alex "Kanu7" Millar vs. The Mountain
We love the PokerStars Team Online mini-documentaries and the latest on high-stakes crusher Alex "Kanu7" Millar is our favorite yet.
Abslutely fantastic; watch the full eight-minute clip by clicking on image below:
3) Gigi: Almost American Finds Poker
We honestly have no idea what this is, or even if it might be slightly xenophobic, but we just discovered it and it is surprisingly funny if you're into the chubby Peter Sellers kind of vibe. Enjoy!
