Daily 3-Bet: Uruguay #1, Koon Crushes, Dan Bilzerian Rap
The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is the perfect road-trip worthy vehicle to make your escape from the bustle of the mid-afternoon poker news world.

In today’s Daily 3-Bet we’ll take a look at Fabrizio Gonzales putting up some impressive numbers for Uruguay, another Jason Koon win and a Dan Bilzerian-themed rap.
1) Gonzalez Wins in Uruguay
It’s fitting that Fabrizio “SixthSenSe19” Gonzalez won the WSOPC’s latest stop in Uruguay because he’s now the country’s all-time earner by an impressive margin.
Gonzalez outlasted nearly 500 entries to take down the WSOPC Main Event for $125,157 in Punta del Este this week.
He’s now up to $1.3m in lifetime live tournament earnings, which gives him a significant lead on Alex Gustavo Komaromi with $690,558.
Gonzalez, who is primarily an online player, has always seemed to fly under the global poker radar but those days are likely gone now.
He’s been crushing the live scene over the last couple years with big scores in Florida, Vegas and of course his native land.
Gonzalez originally wanted to be a football pro but it’s safe to say poker was a good choice. You can learn more about Gonzalez in this feature we did with him 2012 at the WSOP.
2) Jason Koon Crushes WPT $25k High Roller
The nicest guy in poker — that’s Jason Koon, obv — is in the midst of one hell of a good 2016.
Last night Koon outlasted 43 entries in the WPT Five Diamond $25k High Roller event to win $412,800.
It wasn’t Koon’s first victory in a $25k High Roller (he won the Aria monthly $25k in July for $514k) and we’re betting it won’t be his last either.
Koon was already one of the best online players in the world but this year alone he has more than $2.5m in earnings including a massive $1m win at the SHRPO event in Florida, and a runner-up finish in an October Aria $25k for $273k.
It seems like Koon is definitely hitting his high roller stride.
Interestingly one of Koon’s closest buddies, Ben Tollerene, also made the WPT Five Diamond $25k high roller final table last night but ended up finishing 7th for $41k.
3) T-Pain, Lil Yachty Drop “Dan Bilzerian” Track
You know you’re rich when rappers start featuring you prominently in their tracks as someone to look up to.
Such is the case for Dan Bilzerian who was immortalized in T-Pain and Lil Yachty’s “Dan Bilzerian” which dropped earlier this year.
Poker Central has a little backstory on how the song came to be and it turns out T-Pain and Lil Yachty didn’t actually know the Bilzerian before they produced the song.
That’s since been rectified since with a trip to Bilzerian’s Los Angeles mansion. Is this peak Bilzerian? Sure feels like peak Bilzerian.
