In today’s 3-Bet we’re going to take a closer look at that chilling Jens Kyllönen situation in Barcelona, the Bet Raise Fold Special Edition and positive story about one man’s poker journey.
1) Student Earns $7k Playing Poker While Waiting for Pizza Job
One thing we’ve learned while rummaging for 3-Bet pieces is that financial journals like Forbes, Wall Street Journal and Business Insider love a good poker story.
Today Business Insider published a profile of former Dartmouth student and current poker player Andrew Seidman, who plays online as BalugaWhale, and it’s pretty good.
Seidman is a fairly interesting guy who travelled the world while climbing the stakes of online poker.
Our favorite part of the story came early in this quote:
I applied for a summer job at a pizza parlor in my home town. In the week while I waited to hear a response, I made $7,000 playing online poker. So I pretty much gave up the idea of normal employment at that time.
We’ve heard variations of that story so many times but it never really ceases to be compelling.
Seidman is planning on writing a book about his experiences in the poker world leading up to Black Friday and it could certainly be worth a read.
