Daily 3-Bet: Negreanu Belts, Kara Relives, Chris Rockymaker

Moneymaker Rocky
You gotta 5-bet, Rock. You gotta.

The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a tear-jerking, meat-hook pounding, sweatsuit-soaking montage right in the heart of the afternoon poker news moving picture.

Any suggestions for a future 3-Bet feel free to drop a note in the comments.

Today in the 3-Bet we find Daniel Negreanu crooning out the next clue in the Guess the Pro contest, Kara Scott opening up about her life before poker and Chris Moneymaker reinvented in photoshop glory.

1) Negreanu Belts Out Next Clue to Guess the Pro

Isaac Haxton
All signs point to Ike?

We mentioned this contest yesterday but it’s worth another look today as voting is still open until 11 pm ET.

PokerStars is announcing a new member of Team Online tomorrow and is running a $50 contest to guess who it is.

Dropping a few hints yesterday, the second clue arrived today in the form of Daniel Negreanu mangling Toni Braxton’s “Unbreak My Heart.”

Which, we think, pretty much rules out our guess of Stephen “stevie444” Chidwick and leans the vote towards Isaac Haxton, who's already one of the top vote getters along with Phil “takechip” D’Auteil, Mike “Timex” McDonald and Kyle Julius.

Follow @PSTeamOnline on Twitter and get your guess in with the hashtag #GuessTeamOnline.

Among the worst guesses we’ve seen so far? Gus Hansen, Viktor Blom, Tom Dwan (Really? Do people not read at all?), Russian micro-grinder maratik and, our personal favorite, "Sghango."

Watch Negreanu's clue below. If you don’t have a PokerStars account, get one here.


2) Kara Scott’s Michelle Pfeiffer-esque Life Before Poker

Kara Scott
Part Buffy, part Pfeiffer.

You know her as the talented and charming tableside host of ESPN’s World Series of Poker coverage.

We know her as the perfect host for the upcoming PokerListings.com Battle of Malta.

Employees at the Rio in Vegas know her as some sort of Jedi Knight.

However you know her, there’s a whole other side to Party Poker’s Kara Scott – a whole other life in fact – you might not even suspect.

Prudent small-town farm girl. Non-profit do-gooder. Closet superhero. Linguistics expert. Dangerous Minds-esque punching bag.

She’s done a lot, to say the least. And now she's sharing a bit of her “life before poker’ story in her personal blog on Cardrunners.

Parts 1 and 2 are up now and well worth a read if you’ve ever wondered what path to take to become a globetrotting poker host.

If you want to ask her in real life, there's no better place than over a few giant strawberry mojitos in Malta.

3) Moneymaker = Rocky, cal42688 = Mickey

As all the cool kids have proven over at 2+2, you’re nothing in this poker world until you produce a meme-worthy photoshop mashup.

Inspired by our Chris Moneymaker interview where he drops the surprising info he’s being coached by one of the best online players in the world, Calvin “cal42688” Anderson, here’s our latest effort.

Go easy. There's only so much you can do with the magnetic lasso tool.
