Daily 3-Bet: £6.2 Millions, LaLa Antonio, #MakeElkYBeautiful

The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a shot of anaesthetic, a quick fever dream and a pleasant awakening in the most beautiful afternoon poker news garden you’ve ever seen.

Got a hot tip for a future 3-Bet? Tweet us @PokerListings us tell us in the comments.

Today in the 3-Bet we find a dazzling number hit in Nottingham, Antonio flies the Vegas coop and ElkY gets a makeover.

1) Now It’s a Poker Party

With John Duthie at the helm and a serious commitment to making poker fun again, we knew it wouldn’t take long for the new partypoker Live tour to win the hearts of poker players across the UK and beyond.

After a smashing debut in Sochi and a 7k turnout at Dawn Till Dusk in Nottingham this week, it’s pretty clear it has already:

That’s a beautiful thing. Kudos to Duthie, Rob Yong, Simon Trumper and all involved for creating a new force on the Live poker scene.

Tune in for the Day 3 and Day 4 live streams here and follow along with the live updates here.

At least check there were dozens of familiar names at the top of the counts including Mike Leah, Koray Aldemir, John Eames, Iaron Lightbourne, David Vamplew and Chris Moorman so it should make for some great poker.

2) Antonio Buys Venice Pad for $3.4 Million

It’s good to be a the Magician.

According to the LA Times, Antonio Esfandiari and his wife Amal Bou-Nahra have just bought a $3.4m house in Los Angeles.

We don’t know how close it is to the Bike or Commerce, but it’s definitely close to the beach in Venice. By the looks of the pics it’s good living, too:


Wonder which bedroom is Phil’s? Check the video here for the full tour.

3) #MakeElkYBeautiful

Want to win some Twitch/Blizzard goodies? Simple. Just, err, make PokerStars pro Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier pretty:

In case you’re wondering, ElkY didn’t lose another kickboxing match against Lex Veldhuis. He had surgery to fix a deviated septum.

Best wishes to a speedy recovery! And if you’re looking for some inspiration for your photoshop project, look no further:
