The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a leisurely paraglide through the cirrocumulus clouds of the poker news landscape.

Any suggestions for a future 3-Bet, feel free to drop a note in the comments.

Today in the 3-Bet we find WSOP bracelet winner Jason Somerville offering up some real talk, Liv Boeree offering up some real change and Daniel Negreanu getting physical with his FTP feelings.

1) Jason "JCarver" Somerville Comes Out to Poker Community

We could try and add a few words on this, but really, Somerville says it best himself in his latest blog post titled Real Talk.

It’s a heartfelt, intelligent and inspiring post about several things, including being gay, but mostly about being true to yourself.

We should all feel proud to be a part of the poker community with leaders like Somerville in it.

An excerpt:

“I’m not planning on being much different. If you’ve interacted with me before, you pretty much know who I am, and there probably won’t be many differences in the future.

“Like I said, I’m just a poker player, after all, and being attracted to guys doesn’t change that.

“Still, though, for myself and as a member of the poker community, I felt this was important to share – to both allow me to openly/completely be myself in the poker world and maybe to make it easier for others to be themselves, too, if they want to be.”

2) Liv Boeree Check-Raising for Children of Zambia

Check-raising for kids.

PokerStars pro Liv Boeree is giving back to the world in the form of a donation drive for Chipata, a children’s village being built in Zambia.

Run by the charity SOS Children. Chipata will provide a home and mother to children left alone because of poverty and disease.

The first generation of kids is about to move into the home and they can use your help.

According to Boeree:

“Any donation on this site, however big or small will be gratefully received and goes straight to SOS Children.

“The current goal is to raise £75,000 which I'm aiming to reach by the summer.”

Boeree has started things off herself with a generous donation of £2,500.

3) Negreanu Goes Off Again on Lederer, Ferguson and Bitar

We’ve been hitting the Negreanu stuff a bit too much lately but this one is too good to pass over.

After yesterday’s closet debacle, Negreanu got back on the video horse and gave us exactly what we were asking for – good material.

In particular he offers up a pulse-raising condemnation of the "unholy trinity" of Howard Lederer, Chris Ferguson and Ray Bitar.

It’s a good one and shouldn’t be missed; check it out below:
