The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a mustachioed sidekick, a need for speed and an unauthorized fly-by of the afternoon poker news control tower.

Got a tip for a future 3-Bet? Drop a note in the comments and we'll take a look.

Today in the 3-bet we find JC Tran thinking about putting an exclamation mark on his poker career, Jessica Dawley showing why she's a burgeoning force in poker both on and off the table and Dave "Devilfish" Ulliot passes on some wisdom to poker's younger generation.

2) Air Force Vet Jessica Dawley Knows How to Steer a Poker Career

Yeah, so let's forget about objectivity again for a second.

Jessica Dawley is not your average, young poker pro. And she's definitely not your average young female poker pro.

An Air Force veteran who saw combat overseas at just 20, Dawley has a head on her shoulders and an appreciation for money and career that most young pros simply don't.

Feeling pretty lucky these days to have made it through it all, Devilfish has a word or two of advice for a few of the young poker pros he sees at the table. Get off the laptop and live a little:
