In today’s Daily 3-Bet we’ll take a look at the fallout from Jason Mercier’s victory last night, Neymar getting a WSOP seat and a packed GPL schedule.
1) Poker Pros Sweat Mercier Win
Jason Mercier might single-handedly break the poker economy.
OK, it’s probably not that bad but Mercier’s victory last night cost Fedor Holz and others some serious cash.
Of course Mercier’s big bet against Vanessa Selbst is still live at 180-1 on Mercier’s $10,000 on winning three bracelets.
“One down… two to go,” as Mercier put it on Twitter.
Holz said the bet he lost against Mercier last night was his single-biggest loss on record, which seems astounding.
Of course Selbst also has that massive bet against Dzmitry Urbanovich to think about and the Polish pro just made Day 2 of the $10k Razz.
Here's a look at some of the reaction from some of the people that took bets against Mercier.
Congrats @JasonMercier. Fun sweat. If anyone wants to lay me a price that he won't win 2 more (I bet he WILL), accepting offers :)— Vanessa Selbst (@VanessaSelbst) June 14, 2016
If every1 can stop telling me my stupid bet I made extremely drunk then tried 2 buy out of once sober was extremely stupid, would appreciate— Vanessa Selbst (@VanessaSelbst) June 14, 2016
2) Neymar Wins Main Event Seat
Speaking of excitement at the WSOP. Brazilian soccer legend Neymar won a seat to the Main Event in a two-table satellite at the Rio earlier this week.
Neymar, a member of Team PokerStars SportsStars, is a huge poker fan and has been to the Rio to watch on numerous occasions but it appears he might actually play this year.
The WSOP just released a video of Neymar winning the seat:
3) Jaffe, Holz, Bonomo Headline GPL
The Global Poker League released its Cube schedule for the week and there are some barn-burners on tap.
Justin Bonomo, Fedor Holz, Nanonoko and Thiago Nishijima are among the numerous pros who will be venturing into The Cube this week.
Remember to pack light guys, it’s hot in there!
Action kicks off at 2 p.m. EDT today.
