Daily 3-Bet: King Rast, GPL Represent, All In on the Mau5tache
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a shift in the wind, a burst of adrenaline and the joyful feeling of the afternoon poker news finish line in sight.
Got a tip for a future 3-Bet? Let us know about it in the comments below.
Today in the 3-Bet we find Brian Rast pushing it to the edge, Global Poker League members bring it at the Grand Final and ElkY jumps the gun on Movember.
1) Rast Wins with Time to Spare
It almost broke him, it seems, but poker pro Brian Rast made it to Los Angeles to win his no-training, LV-LA in 48hrs bike bet.
Net profit for him was $600k (and maybe more on side bets) but his takeaway seemed even greater:
If that was any more difficult, than I don't think I could have completed the task. I pushed myself to the absolute limit. #havethatforlife— Brian Rast (@tsarrast) April 28, 2016
Perkins, for his part, didn't seem bothered by the loss and Rast friends, including Phil Laak, are inspired:

2) GPL Has 6 of 7 in Grand Final €10k
We say all the time the Global Poker League offers up world-class poker talent every day.
After four weeks of action we can say that's definitely been the case with some spectacular heads-up matches and amazing insight on cam from some of the best poker minds in the world.
If you need proof that carries over into the real poker world, where real money is on the line, check out the final seven in the €10k Single Re-Entry High Roller at the EPT Grand Final.
Of those seven, 6 are members of Global Poker League franchises. Chip leader Chance Kornuth and second-place Fedor Holz even rep the same team, the LA Sunset.
Berlin Bear Phil Gruissem, Sao Paulo Met Felipe Ramos, Las Vegas Moneymaker Anthony Zinno and Moscow Wolverine Sergey Lebedev are also still in the mix.
3) ElkY Goes Cookie Duster
We're a long way from Movember but Bertrand 'ElkY' Grospellier is getting a headstart on his mustache, apparently.
We also vote for the pre-dye version but any 'stache is a treat, really.
