Daily 3-Bet: Tasering Phil, Unfollowing Doyle, $2m WPT Live
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a contentious election, a quick Twitter trigger and a growing chasm splitting the afternoon poker news continents apart.
Got a tip for a future edition of the 3-Bet? Tell us where to find it in the comments below.
Today in the 3-Bet we find an electrifying challenge for Phil Hellmuth, heated tweets from Doyle Brunson and Vanessa Selbst and a must-watch WPT Borgata live stream.
1) $100k, Taser & a Raw Egg?
So, this could be interesting.
ALL I want in my life is the following... Heads up match w @phil_hellmuth for a 100k AND the winner gets to shoot the loser w a taser gun.— Antonio Esfandiari (@MagicAntonio) September 22, 2016
Come on @phil_hellmuth wouldn't you LOVE To shoot me w a taser gun?!?! Offer on the table until the day I die.— Antonio Esfandiari (@MagicAntonio) September 22, 2016
Yo @MagicAntonio, I'm close to accepting! Wait till the folks see our new show "Final Table" where you crack a raw egg on my forehead!!— phil_hellmuth (@phil_hellmuth) September 22, 2016
This, maybe not quite as much ...
2) The Revolution Will Be Twitterized
It's not surprising the ongoing US election has dramatically illustrated how different poker players can feel politically (see. Daniel Negreanu v. Mike Matusow, for example).
It's also made it pretty clearly poker's best and brightest won't humor old school, political grandstanding - no matter where it comes from:
@TexDolly You're just like the rest of the ignorant masses. Recycling talking points, making assertions, avoiding actual facts and logic.— Vanessa Selbst (@VanessaSelbst) September 22, 2016
@TexDolly I haven't followed you for a long time. And yeah, paying 100k = welching. I doubt u want to start a debate about ethics in poker.— Vanessa Selbst (@VanessaSelbst) September 22, 2016
Goodbye and good luck. You are going to need it.@blockison https://t.co/88p3ywSse4— Doyle Brunson (@TexDolly) September 22, 2016
I didn't shit on what's her name. What are you talking about? She brought up ethics. Said I wouldn't like it...Geeeeeez https://t.co/0jrouTevLK— Doyle Brunson (@TexDolly) September 22, 2016
3) Jattin, Sylvia Stream for $821k at WPT Borgata
They're just about ready to split up $2 million at the WPT Borgata final table in Atlantic City with Colombia's Farid Jattin in the chip lead and former WSOP November Niner Jesse Sylvia chasing.
Even better, it'll all be live streamed on a 30-minute delay on WPT.com and Twitch.tv starting at 4:30 pm ET. Hole cards will be shown and commentary will be provided from Kane Kalas, Jamie Kerstetter, Michael Gagliano and Nick Binger.
