Today in the 3-Bet we find public poker enemy Russ Hamilton reportedly resurfacing in Aruba, a great behind-the-scenes feature on former online wunderkind Steven “Zugwat” Silverman and John Juanda partaking in Jiro’s world famous sushi.
1) Russ Hamilton Now Consultant to Aruba Poker Room

In one of the stranger, investigative poker-related phone calls you’ll ever hear, Bryan Micon has confirmed UB superuser villain Russ Hamilton has resurfaced as a consultant to a poker room in Aruba.
The call pretty much speaks for itself (although you’ll have to filter through some standard Micon absurdities), so take a listen here.
The cliff notes: Hamilton – the current #1 suspect/scapegoat in the UltimateBet superuser scandal now has a share in/plays regularly at/consults for/turned around the poker room at the Occidental Grand Aruba Casino.
If you’re into getting some hands in/having a word with him, poker room cashier Christopher says Hamilton will be there next week and the room spreads $2/$5 No-Limit Hold’em and $5/$5 No-Limit Omaha.
