Daily 3-Bet: Negreanu's Moment, Rogan + Bilzerian, Team Hot
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a tight rental market, a snoopy landlord and all kinds of hilarious hijinks at the afternoon poker news Regal Beagle.
Got a tip for a future 3-Bet? Drop us a line in the comments.
Today in the 3-Bet we find nothing off limits for Daniel Negreanu, 3 hrs of Joe Rogan + Dan Bilzerian and Kitty, Xuan and Dong are Team Hot.
1) Give Love, Get Love
Brian Koppleman is the famed co-writer/filmmaker responsible for the iconic poker film Rounders.
Daniel Negreanu is, more or less, one of the most famous poker players in the world and the face of poker to much of the world's mainstream audience.
They both have podcasts and they both love to talk.
In this case, they did it in the context of Koppelman's great podcast, The Moment, for Slate Magazine. The conditions, before they started talking:
The results, as you might expect, were unexpected. Listen to the whole thing here.
2) Seriously, Bro
Speaking of two dudes sitting down for a lengthy, inspirational, heart-to-heart for a podcast ... this isn't exactly that.
It's comedian Joe Rogan and Instagram/poker playboy Dan Bilzerian broing down for 3 hrs.
Admittedly, the poker content is minimal - check about the 1hr mark for Bilzerian's report of winning $54m, $10.5m and $10m in games over the course of 6-12 months.
There's also some interesting stuff about a couple of apps Bilzerian is developing, including a fantasy sports betting one.
Fair warning: it's a LOT of DudeBro. And F bombs. And a lot of very, very crude "locker room" talk.
Also Rogan repeatedly calling poker "gambling." But if you're into that kind of thing, have at 'er:
3) Team Hot + the Friend Zone
While "Team Hot" sounds like something you'd expect to be affiliated with Dan Bilzerian, this is actually the name Natural8 has given to its new team of sponsored poker pros.
"The online poker platform offers 24-hour cash games and poker tournaments across a variety of stakes, suitable for all kinds of players.
Natural8 has received an amazing response from players in Malaysia, mainland China, Taiwan and many other countries within the region, thanks to its well developed software, fun games and great customer service."
Which players make up "Team Hot?" That would be Kitty Kuo, Xuan Liu and Dong Kim, whom we can confirm are all hot stuff at poker.
The three will be making appearances on the live tournament circuit as Natural8 ambassadors and will stream on Twitch.tv playing poker on Natural8.com.
Natural8 has also signed Chinese professional poker player Xiao Chung as a "Friend of Natural8," which we guess means he's still good just slightly less hot. More info from Natural8 here.
