The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a frozen side of beef, a run up the PMOA stairs and Eye of the Tiger on 11 for your afternoon poker news workout.
Got a hot tip for a future 3-Bet? Let us know where to find it in the comments.
Today in the 3-Bet we find Fedor Holz's magic finding no bounds, India's Poker Sports League picks teams and Daniel Negreanu plans a huge summer.
1) Full Wrap, Can't Lose
We know Fedor Holz has a Primed Mind and basically figured out the future of No-Limit Hold'em before everyone else, but PLO now too?
C'mon, man. Give poker a chance.

2) Huang, Razavi, Leonard, Ohyama Drafted in PSL
India and poker are in the midst of a burgeoning romance these days and a couple of intriguing new developments show it might be ready to take things to the next level.
The World Poker Tour and Adda52 announced today a new partnership that will include a new $1,000 WPT Deepstacks event in Goa this year and a WPT Indian Player of the Year Award.
Meanwhile over the weekend the 12 franchises of the first-ever Indian Poker Sports League held their first draft to round out their rosters.
According to the PSL a total of 133 poker players 'went under the hammer' in the player auction with each team picking up 4 players. The 2 wild card players for each team were also announced with some surprising (and recognizable) names on the list including:
- Bryan Huang for the Goan Nuts
- Sam Razavi for KINGS Hyderabad
- Akira Ohyama for Punjab Bluffers and
- Patrick Leonard for Rajasthan Tilters
Very interesting. Also: Goan Nuts = GOLD. The first season of the PSL begins May 22 with a two-day boot camp followed by the 'finale' (short season, apparently) May 24-28. Read the details here.
3) Daniel Negreanu's Wet Hot Las Vegas Summer
Planning on joining a WSOP fantasy pool? Pretty sure you might want to pay whatever it takes to pick up Daniel Negreanu as he has his eyes set on a big summer. A very big summer.
He's already loosely mapped out a 40-event schedule that includes virtually every small-field, mixed game event possible.
He'll also be playing the $300k Super High Roller Bowl and a bunch of high-stakes Aria events the week prior so he expects over $1m in buy-ins (all his own money) in play.
Yowza. But that outlay does mean he plans on bringing his A-game, all day errryday. And he intends on winning over $1.5m in prize money and 3 bracelets.
