Daily 3-Bet: Kid Poker Returns, EPT Dodgeball, WPT Borgata Stream
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is like a secret 1up mushroom that you can find on Level 1 of the mid-afternoon poker news world just behind the fourth warp tunnel.

In today’s Daily 3-Bet we’ll take a look at Daniel Negreanu coming out of high-stakes retirement, a dodgeball game at EPT Dublin and a live stream of that blockbuster WPT Borgata final table.
1) Kid Poker Returns to High-Stakes
Daniel Negreanu returned from his self-imposed “retirement” from live high-stakes cash games last night.
Negreanu hit up the big bet mixed games at Aria (including a few he’d never played) and actually walked away with a decent win.
Although Negreanu spent much of his formative years as a poker pro playing the big game in Bobby’s Room at Bellagio it’s actually been a long time since he’s played in those games.
Over the past few years Negreanu has instead focused on tournament poker with an impressive record in that time that includes winning 2013 WSOP Player of the Year.
Critics weren’t convinced that Negreanu would still be able to be a winning player in the big live games but so far, so good for the Canadian.
We’ll see if he heads back soon.
2) Dodgeball at EPT Dublin
You know what’s been missing from poker tournaments all these years?
Sometimes poker is just a little too passive aggressive and it would probably be helpful for a few poker pros to hurl a ball at each other at excessive speeds.
Fear not. EPT Dublin has you covered.
Jason Mercier and Jake Cody will host a Dodgeball trampoline session on Feb. 11 in Dublin. You can actually already sign up for the activity through firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally you’ll have a way to get out all that anger over being counterfeited on the river in potentially tournament-leading pot.
Remember: “If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball.”
3) Watch JovialGent, McKeehen go for WPT Gold
How about that WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open Final Table?
It’s a good one with Yevgeniy Timoshenko and Joe McKeehen looking to snag the $816,246 first-place prize.
Fortunately you can watch the entire thing via the Borgata stream below:
