Phil Hellmuth

The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is the perfect way to kick-start your week with three prime mid-afternoon poker news morsels to help you avoid the dreaded “crash.”

In today’s Daily 3-Bet we’ll take a look at one of the weirdest marriage proposals ever, Phil Hellmuth’s son gets scracked and a cash game live stream you definitely want to check out.

1) Russian Poker Game Ends in Marriage

Want to propose in a way that your potential fiancee will never, ever forget?

How about you invite your girlfriend to a home poker game and then have fake Special Forces military raid the game, search you, find an engagement ring and then you propose while the fake militery men play guitar?

Amazingly that’s what a Russian man did according to a YouTube video that was released over the weekend.

Perhaps even more amazing: the bride-to-be kinda seemed to dig it. Or at least she said yes. (H/T to f5poker.com for spotting this incredible video).

2) Phil Hellmuth’s Son Plays Poker, Gets Aces Cracked

Do we need generations of poker-playing Hellmuths?

Like father, like son?

Phil Hellmuth’s son Phillip (so is that Phil Hellmuth JR JR?) apparently played a tournament recently and finished in 20th place after getting aces cracked.

It’s not clear where the tournament was but Phil congratulated his son for the deep run on Twitter.

No word as to whether Phillip has his father’s penchant for blowing up after getting unlucky. We’re gonna say no.

3) Celebrity Cash Game Now Streaming on Twitch

The big Celebrity Cash Kings Game at King’s Casino in Rozvadov is underway and you can watch it right here on PokerListings.

Today’s line up has already featured Ole Schemion, Isaac Haxton, Jan Peter Jachtmann and George Danzer with more expected to wander in throughout the day including heavyweights Dan Cates, Dan Colman and Max Altergott.

Philipp Gruissem even showed up to talk a little strategy during a break in the game. It's pretty much must-watch poker TV.
