Daily 3-Bet: Jedlicka is Unstoppable, Piece of Timex, NHL Antes Up
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is an audacious dangle right through the the skates of the notoriously tough mid-afternoon poker news world.
Be sure to fire suggestions for future 3-Bet pieces in the comments section below.
In today’s 3-Bet we’ll take a look at Niki Jedlicki putting in another massive day on Full Tilt, getting a piece of Timex and an NHL charity tournament.
1) Kaibuxxe Unstoppable: Wins Another $677k
Austrian Niki “KaiBuxxe” Jedlicka is a bit of a throwback in the high-stakes scene as he hasn’t been dominant in the scene for several years.
Well he’s certainly made an emphatic return over the last two weeks.
In two weeks Jedlicka has waged an all-out assault on the toughest games available on Full Tilt Poker.
Jedlicka hasn’t just won, he’s completely and utterly crushed the competition.
According to highstakesDB he picked up another $677k in the huge $1500/$3000 Mixed Game that was running last night.
Prior to the evening Jedlicka was already up $1.6 million since returning to the high-stakes games on Full Tilt Poker. At this point his graph looks like a rocket blasting off after years of inactivity.
This kind of heater isn’t completely unheard of for Jedlicka. In fact, way back in 2007 he managed to win a staggering $4 million in five months on Full Tilt while using his KaiBuxxe name.
Hopefully for Jedlicka the ending will be different this time around, however. In 2007 he became a FTP Red Pro and switched his name to the current “Niki Jedlicka.” That prompted a massive downswing where he lost $4.4 million.
2) Get a Piece of Mike “Timex” McDonald
Mike “Timex” McDonald is currently on the heater of the lifetime so wouldn’t it be great have a piece of his action?
It turns out you can as McDonald is selling pieces of himself in the EPT Monte Carlo Grand Final $100k Super High Roller.
An investment of $1,500 gets you 1% of the Canadian poker star’s action in the $100k High Roller.
While poker tournaments involved variance (just a little) but it’s hard to argue with McDonald in this event.
He’s arguably the hottest player right now in Super High Rollers with:
- Fourth in the EPT Barcelona $100k
- Third in the $100k WPT Alpha 8 St. Kitts event
- Eighth in the PCA $100k
- Second in the Aussie Millions $100k
- Third place in the Aussie Millions $250k
It’s ridiculous and that’s all within the last 12 months. McDonald has won over $4 million just from high rollers in that time-span (he also placed second in the PCA Main Event for over a million).
Edit: McDonald just sold out so anyone reading this is unfortunately out of the running. Who are we kidding, you don’t have $1,500.
3) PokerStars Reloads NHL Alumni Charity Game
Do you like hockey? Do you play poker?
If so you might be interested that PokerStars is once again running qualifiers for it’s special NHL alumni charity game in Toronto.
