Daily 3-Bet: SHRB Redux, WSOP > Everything, Be Nice Play Fast
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a flimsy paper receipt, a trembling hand with a seat card and the racing heart that tells you afternoon poker news dreams are at hand.
Got a tip for a future 3-Bet? Let us know about it in the comments.
Today in the 3-Bet we relive the spectacular Super High Roller Bowl, a behemoth takes over the Rio and Mike Leah provides a simple guide to WSOP etiquette.
1) Relive Super High Roller Bowl Today
It has barely dealt its final hand and already poker fans are suffering from withdrawal from the spectacular Aria $300k Super High Roller Bowl.
With four days of riveting action (save the extraordinary amount of commercials), the SHRB brought some much-needed thrills back to televised tournament poker.
The play itself was particularly impressive, especially that provided by the brilliant poker minds of Fedor Holz, Phil Galfond and eventual winner (spoiler alert) Rainer Kempe.
The cool and collected Erik Seidel, the incessant chatter of the Poker Brat, the architectural marvel of Bryn Kenney's hat tilt ... the second-ever SHRB had a little bit of everything and certainly set the stage for an amazing summer of poker.
If you missed all or part of it, Poker Central is replaying it starting today at 8 pm. If you watched it the first time I'm sure you'll agree it's worth watching it twice, even if just for the sultry tones and spot-on commentary of announcer Nick Schulman.
2) Out with the Old, In with the Colossus
Then again, why live in the past?
The greatest poker series in the world is now officially underway in Las Vegas with its traditional opener, the $565 Casino Employees Event, and the new behemoth on the block, the $565 Colossus.
With over $1m for first and a starting field of over 22,000 over four flights expected, it's quickly becoming one of the showpiece events of the WSOP in just its second year.
Whether you win a bracelet, go deep in the Main Event or, god forbid, brick everything, former champ Ryan Riess still has the proper equation down for poker players:

Pretty much covers it. Tune in daily to PokerListings for exclusive features and interviews from the floor of the Rio, all leading up to our "On Demand" coverage of the Main Event starting in July.
3) Be Nice Bet Even Play Fast
Speaking of general attitudes towards the WSOP, if you're planning on playing some (or all) of the events this summer, Spirit of Poker nominee Mike Leah has some pretty simple reminders to help things flow smoothly:
