Didn't know hockey games went on forever.
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a cushy seat, a puffy jacket and an immortalized booze-fueled guest spot on the afternoon poker news fan cam.
Got a tip for a future 3-Bet? Drop a note in the comments sections and we'll take a look.
Today in the 3-Bet we find Vanessa Selbst paying the price for a few too many beers at a hockey game, Daniel Negreanu finally showcasing the fruits of his poker career and just how helpful (or unhelpful) Google Glass might be for your poker game.
