You can always shoot us a suggestion for a future 3-Bet article in the comments below.

In today’s 3-Bet we’ll take a look at academic poker, Dan Bilzerian in a new movie and a sick Phil Ivey brag about misplaced cash.

1) Real Education Begins at Poker Table

The Times Higher Education published a great piece on academics who play poker and what they’ve learned from the game this week.

In the article a collection of professors, authors and poker players discuss what they’ve learned from the game.

Academics claim that poker gives them the chance to ditch their normally risk-adverse personalities. They also mentioned how lying is not just encouraged in poker, it’s required.

The famed Jim McManus of Positively Fifth Street also talked about his storied introduction to the poker world when he came in fifth in the WSOP Main Event.

The negative side of the game are also displayed, however, as one professor mentioned how he gave the game up after being bullied one too many times in a home game.

Poker pro Vicky Coren also mentioned how women are still relatively rare at the poker table.

It’s a great piece though, and we suggest you check out the entire article here

2) Bilzerian, Esfandiari Shooting Cat Run 2 in New Orleans

It’s a poker player reunion with Bill Perkins, Dan Bilzerian and Antonio Esfandiari all working on a movie in New Orleans.

Perkins is producing while Bilzerian and Esfandiari both have acting roles according to Twitter.

The synopsis according to Backstage.com:

"A couple of fumbling best friends run a private detective agency and find themselves solving their next case in New Orleans, becoming embroiled in a web of sexy female spies and government conspiracy in the lively and character-filled backdrops of the Big Easy."

Sounds about right. You can see a trailer for the original Cat Run below. Quality stuff.

3) Ivey’s Sick Money Brag: “I Didn’t Even Know it Was There”

So there’s a famous photo of Phil Ivey at the World Series of Poker that featured the former Full Tilt Pro with a fat stack of cash by his foot at one of the tables.

The photo was tossed around numerous forums and remained a classic example of Ivey’s “baller” status.

While the photo itself is quite old these days, Ivey himself shed to light on it today by posting it to his Instagram and claiming he didn’t even know it was there.

Two things:

1. We’re going to start following Ivey everywhere (Oh, who are we kidding, we already do).

2. Phil Ivey should buy a money clip.

Check out the iconic photo below from his Instagram account:
