Daily 3-Bet: Poker for Beer, Sky Poker Grounded, Norwegian D-Negs
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is an all-expenses paid trip to the most luxurious mid-afternoon poker news resort in the world.
You can always make suggestions for future 3-Bet pieces in the comments section below.
In today’s Daily 3-Bet we’ll take a look at an odd promotion involving Fernando Pons, the end of Sky Poker and the latest revealing Daniel Negreanu interview.
1) Bust Pons, Win Beer
How’s this for an unusual bounty: Bust recent November Niner Fernando Pons and win your own weight in beer.
That’s really happening at the upcoming Superprizepool event at Casino Cirsa Valencia.
Specifically if you manage to bust Pons on Day 1b of the tournament you’ll receive your weight in liters of Desperados Tequila-flavored beer.
It’s not quite Russ Hamilton earning his weight in silver by winning the 1994 WSOP Main Event but it’s something.
Meanwhile Pons finished ninth in the 2016 WSOP Main Event final table in November but he’s been making up for it with appearances all over the world.
The Spaniard had a $2.4k cash in the Estrellas Main Event at EPT Barcelona this summer and even stopped by PokerListings 2016 Battle of Malta.
2) End of the Road for Sky Poker
After 10 years the iconic Sky Poker TV show is coming to an end.
Presenter Richard Orford was there for the first show and will be there for the last according to a photo he posted with the crew.
Sky Poker was a groundbreaking poker show in the U.K. that also included an adjoined U.K. online poker site. Over the years plenty of notable poker personalities were featured on the show including Kara Scott, Neil Channing and Laura Cornelius.
Good luck to all the hosts moving on to other ventures:

3) Daniel Negreanu Talks Tells, Trump and More
The Norwegian video podcast Nuts scored a pretty big interview this week: Daniel Negreanu.
The Nuts crew covered a wide range of topics with the iconic poker player including tells, Norway, who he hates (Donald Trump) and his most embarrassing moment (literally wetting the bed in Cardiff).
It’s pretty impressive that Negreanu can still give interesting answers after all these years. The 6-time WSOP bracelet winner remains one of the most dynamic interviews in the game no matter what country he’s in.
