Daily 3-Bet: Kade's Epic Rack, LA Times 4 Poker, Hellmuth + Jay Z
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a lightweight, technical backpack with three specialized compartments for three prime pieces of mid-afternoon poker news.
You can fire suggestions for future 3-Bet pieces in the comments section below.
In today’s Daily 3-Bet we’ll take a look at Vanessa Kade’s impressive cash game haul, the LA Times with a sensible approach for legalizing online poker/DFS and Phil Hellmuth rubbing shoulders with Jay Z.
1) Kade Wins $5.2k in Insane 28-Hour Cash Game
Canadian poker pro and former Bioware video game producer Vanessa Kade put in one heck of a session last night.
She was just playing $1/$2 No-Limit Hold’em at Cowboys Casino in Calgary, Canada but it was apparently pretty damn soft.
The game was so good, in fact, that she couldn’t pull herself away despite for more than an entire day.
After 28 straight hours, Kade finally decided to call it quits with $5,240 in profit.
Kade ended up hauling home over 50 stacks, which officially qualifies for “racks on racks on racks” status.
It was apparently her first time playing in weeks.
Who else wants to go to Cowboys Casino?
Rackin up! This sucker holds 50 stacks, and is surprisingly heavy. pic.twitter.com/y7a5rtq3n5— Vanessa Kade (@VanessaKade) January 25, 2016
2) LA Times Pushes for Fantasy Sports, Online Poker Legislation
Now this is something we can get behind.
The LA Times published an editorial calling for the legalization and regulation of all online gaming sites, not just fantasy sports.
That means poker too:
The argument for setting up a safer environment for fantasy sports games applies in spades to online poker. It's time for the Legislature to stand up to the competing gambling interest groups and adopt safeguards that apply across the online gaming boards.
It’s often said that California is the lynchpin of online poker succeeding in the USA so it’s hard not to get excited about the prospect of actual legal poker in the state.
3) When Phil Hellmuth Met Jay Z
Phil Hellmuth can be a bit of a name-dropper but last night he actually scored pretty substantial bragging rights by chatting it up with iconic rap mogul Jay Z on the floor of the Golden State Warriors’ game.
Hellmuth claims he owes Jay Z a poker lesson. Let’s hope Hellmuth doesn’t get a rapping lesson in return.
Actually, at the very least, Jay Z should just buy him a jersey that actually fits.
