Daily 3-Bet: Steph Curry Grinds, Xuan Goodbye, 35 Hours of WPT
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a private charter, a pepperoni slice and no idea what kind of hustle David Lee's running in the Golden State Warriors' airplane game.
Have something you'd like featured in a future 3-Bet? Drop us a note in the comments.
Today in the 3-Bet we find the Golden State Warriors breaking out some cash-game Holdem on their post-game flight, Xuan Liu makes a surprise announcement and the latest season of the World Poker Tour poised to hit the airwaves.
1) Lee Deals, Bogut Naps, Curry Grinds?
We've always said there's nothing that can bring a team together on road trips more than high-stakes poker. (Ok; we never say that. In fact, it's probably been proven to be terrible - especially in the NBA).
Still, the virtually unbeatable Golden State Warriorsare showing it's more than possible.
Forward Mareese Speights posted this fascinating snippet from a recent flight with David Lee dealing, Draymond Green and Stephen Curry donating and Andrew Bogut dozing near a pile of cash.
We know Lee is legit at poker, thanks to his recent $32k trouncing of Phil Hellmuth's home game, and Bogut is rumored to have some chops.
Steph Curry? We're not sure what his game's like but it's still cool to see the NBA's leading All Star votegetter bending some cards (and pizza).
2) Xuan Liu Says Goodbye to 888poker
The talented and popular Xuan Liu tweeted a surprising note to her fans this morning to let them know that after a year as a sponsored pro with 888poker she'll no longer be wearing the patch:
Very grateful to have been given the opportunity for a year but will no longer be an @888poker ambassador.â Xuan Liu (@xxl23) February 11, 2015
No details on the why but given the timeframe of exactly a year it feels like one of the very common "end of contract/different direction" situations of late.
888poker stablemates Sofia LÃ¶vgren, Bruno Politano, Jackie Glazier, Nicolau Villa Lobos and Bruno Kuwaiti all still seem to be onboard. More on the 888 ambassadors here.
3) 35 Hours of WPT Season XIII Premiers Sunday
The WPT announced today its 13th season on air will begin on Fox Sports on Sunday with 35 hours of brand new programming.
Stops at the 2014 Legends of Poker, the Borgata, Commerce, Bay 101, the Seminole Hard Rock and more are included as is the WPT Monster Invitational.
Mike Sexton, Vince Van Patten, Lynn Gilmartin and Tony Dunst are all back, as are the Royal Flush Girls, for what we expect will be another fantastic season of great poker.
Episodes air on Sundays with rebroadcasts throughout the week depending on local schedules. Check WPT.com for the full list.
