Daily 3-Bet: Quuuaaaaddds! Braaaaiiiinnsss! durrrrrrrrr!
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a couple of chairs, a minimal set design and the ultimate craft seminar for students of the afternoon poker news game.
Have a tip for a future edition of the 3-Bet? Let us know about it in the comments.
Today in the 3-Bet we find Dan Colman running pure in the Bahamas, Humans vs. Libratus begins and Tom 'durrrr' Dwan in conversation with Paul Phua.
1) Dan Colman Can't Lose
Dan Colman doesn't need help from the deck to win poker tournaments.
Not only does he have the most lucrative year in poker tournament history under his belt, he simply continues to book 6-figure scores whenever he plays.
He is the true end boss. He's already up over $1m in cashes at the 2017 PokerStars Championship Bahamas with a 3rd in the $100k Super High Roller for $759k and 4th in the $50k for $341k.
Then this happened on Day 2 of the $5k Main Event against table chip leader Christoph Vogelsong (hand starts at 5:44:00)
It's good to be the king. Colman is currently third in chips with under 100 players left and we expect we'll see a lot more updates on his growing stack as we get deeper. Watch today's live stream right here.
2) Brains Battle for Future of Poker Human Race
Remember that $200,000, 120,000 Brains vs. AI Challenge we mentioned last week? It's now underway at Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh with Jason Les first up for the Brains squad.
You can follow all the matches over the next 2.5 weeks on Twitch (with individual channels for each of the 4 humans) and a ton of social media channels outlined here.
Just an hour or so into the challenge Les has already apparently said the computer is already executing a pre-flop strategy that no human brain could handle.
So, uh, yeah. GL brains. The future of the human race depends on you. Watch Les v. Libratus below:
3) Tom Dwan In Conversation with Paul Phua
Ever wished there was a poker version of Inside the Actors Studio starring Tom 'durrrr' Dwan and Paul Phua in place of James Lipton and guest?
So have we, friend. So have we. And now we can die happy.
It's actually a bit of a preview/sneak peak for Phua's new poker training site, which has both Dwan and Phil Ivey on board as endorsers. Which ... sick.
