The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a slow jump at the gun, a head of steam and no chance the field can hold you off down the afternoon poker news stretch.
Have a piece you’d like to see in a future 3-Bet? Tell us about it in the comments.
Today in the 3-Bet we find Phil Hellmuth signing for Elon Musk, Usain Bolt out strong against Kevin Hart and a Wild Hungarian and a Diablo boss take on Twitch.
1) Poker Brat in Demand
We’re not sure just how many of these were by request or initiated by Phil himself but that’s still an impressive list getting autographed copies of Hellmuth’s new Poker Brat autobiography:

With the release of his book has come a lot of action for Hellmuth post-WSOP including a 30-minute FB Live sitdown with Sandberg, recording the audio and appearing on a bunch of podcasts.
The latest? An almost 2-hour chat with Doug Polk last night in support of the book and their upcoming Poker Night in America King of the Hill battle. Check it out below:
2) Bolt Out to Early #GameOn Lead
Hart, especially, has made a splash with his appearances in the Bahamas and Monaco and at the $300,000 Super High Roller Bowl.
Bolt, much like he does in his races, is off to a slower start but, also like his races, is beginning to pick up steam.
He might not have won his final solo race but he has edged out in front of Hart in their ongoing #GameOn battle to see who will have the chip lead for their heads-up showdown at next year’s PSC Bahamas.
Here’s DNegs himself with the update:

Hart has also been busy launching his new LOL network, at which a classic “Royal Flush wins the set-up hand” was filmed. Read the report from crack poker reporter Alex Villegas here.
3) Gaming Legend Joins partypoker Twitch Brigade
If you’re a fan of watching poker streaming on Twitch you’ll know there’s no shortage of great options these days.
From Doug Polk to Parker Talbot to Jaime Staples to Espen Uhlen Jorstad to Lex Veldhuis to the kingpin of the genre himself, Jason Somerville, the entertainment and strategy value being offered is off the charts right now.
Add another great channel to your programming mix as the surging partypoker has upped his Twitch game lately with new and intriguing streamers to follow.
The latest is World of Warcraft/Diablo legend Philipp “Moldran” Karburn, who joins Beata ‘Wild Hungarian” Jambrik, Adam “IT5PAYDAY” Neal and Joey Craig in the regular partypoker Twitch lineup.
Moldran hits the tables on Mondays while Jambrik has the reins today for her usual Sit & Go Hero stream. Check it out below:
