In today’s Daily 3-Bet we’ll take a look at Max Silver breaking down the Kassouf/Serda deal Sam Trickett’s new partypoker tournament and Jason Somerville returning to the Aussie Millions.
1) The Art of the Deal
So that deal that Will Kassouf made with Patrick Serda to take the last EPT HR title but take home significantly less money?
Turns out it was all Max Silver’s idea.
Silver gave the complete rundown on the unusual deal on his blog in a post titled “The Art of the Deal.”
Serda actually sold Silver a small piece of his action in the event and that’s why Silver was around to negotiate for the Canadian.
According to Silver negotiations were slow and arduous until Silver came up with giving the title to Kassouf as part of the deal. Serda was more concerned with maximizing EV.
Silver thought it was a good deal for both players, however, and that Kassouf would potentially be able to profit from marketing opportunities in the future after winning the title.
It’s fascinating stuff and you should check out the complete piece here.
2) New Trickett’s Hero SnG on partypoker
Sam Trickett is getting his very own tournament mode on partypoker.
The brand-new Trickett’s Hero play just like party’s popular Sit & Go Hero events except you can win up to $1m if you have the fortune of hitting the max multiplier.
Sit & Go Hero tournaments are four-player bounty events with jackpot twist where you can potentially win 10,000 times your buy-in.
One player in each Sit & Go is randomly selected as the bounty and there is a reward for anyone who knocks that player out.
Trickett’s version of Sit & Go’s cost $100 to play but offer a potential $1m reward.
In addition every $1m Trickett’s Hero will offer an extra $100k for the player who knocks out the randomly-selected bounty.

3) Jason Somerville Returning for Aussie Millions Duties
Jason “jcarver” Somerville made a splash last year by becoming the first-ever Twitch host for the venerable Aussie Millions.
It’s not a huge surprise considering how well it went the first time but Somerville confirmed yesterday he would be returning to Melbourne in 2017 to do it all again.
