Daily 3-Bet: Negreanu > Hachem, Richey Snaps, Be Like Chip

Aussie? Oi.

The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a soothing tea, a lavender candle and the sweet, dulcet voice of reason in the afternoon poker news "he said, she said" wars.

Got a tip for a future 3-Bet? Drop a note in the comments and we'll gladly take a look.

Today in the 3-Bet we find Daniel Negreanu one-upping Joe Hachem in the "future of poker" department, Brett Richey less inclined to consider Hachem's point of view and the perfect role model for any aspiring poker player to emulate.

1) Negreanu Knows Best: Make Poker Fun or Money Dries Up

Remember the whole "poker is dying/recent WSOP Main Event champs don't help poker" lament Joe Hachem went on yesterday?

Turns out people in poker had some pretty strong reactions to it. Many agreed with him wholeheartedly. Some gave him credit for some valid points. Some said he's dramatically overestimating the decline of poker and the responsibilities of the Main Event champ.
