Daily 3-Bet: McDonald's V-Day Bet, JRB's Grind Station, GPL Music
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a crusty loaf of mid-afternoon poker news bread that’s bursting with whole-grained goodness.
You can make suggestions for future 3-Bet pieces in the comments section below.
In today’s Daily 3-Bet we’ll take a look at Mike McDonald nearly taking an insane prop bet, the sickest online poker set-up ever and the official soundtrack for the Global Poker League.
1) Mike McDonald Dodges V-Day Bet
What did you do this Valentine's Day?
If you’re Mike McDonald you were nearly forced to walk 52 miles across Ireland because of a drunken prop bet.
McDonald was gauging interest in the bet after finishing up play in EPT Dublin and having a few drinks with fellow poker players.
The Canadian was even contemplating wearing a Go Pro camera for the entire thing just for entertainment purposes.
Sadly the bet didn't end up happening, which is a shame because it would have been one of the most memorable props in poker.
Walking 52-straight miles in the middle of the night and all of the next day? I mean there are probably worse Valentine’s Days.
Bet didn't happen. Bummed since walking 20 hrs in solitude to make $ on Valentine's Day would be a perfect synopsis of what type of guy I am— Mike McDonald (@MikeMcDonald89) February 14, 2016
2) BrokeLivingJRB’s Relaxing Online Poker Set Up
Jean-Robert Bellande has been posting pictures of himself playing online poker in more and more ridiculous settings over the years but he may have peaked with his latest.
The photo (on the right) shows BrokeLivingJRB playing some online poker in Cabo WHILE getting a message. That’s some serious multi-tasking.
Good to see that stint on Survivor way back in 2007 didn’t scare him away from beaches altogether.
Unfortunately Bellande may have been a little too relaxed as his Jaqueline account ended up losing $76,000, according to highstakesDB.com.
3) Global Poker League Gets Official Music
The Global Poker League has a venue, eligible players to be drafted and now… official music?
Earlier today GPL CEO Alexandre Dreyfus announced that the league will have an official soundtrack courtesy of Danny McCarthy (who composed the music for League of Legends).
That’s pretty good company and you can have a listen below:
