Today in the 3-Bet we find Kid Poker crossing a major WSOP milestone, Natural8 feeds the WSOP masses and Will Kassouf gets immortalized (kind of).
1) Hot Negreanu 100
In the staggering 47 year history of the World Series of Poker, just three players have crossed the 100-cash barrier.
Phil Hellmuth, of course, is the all-time leader with 123 cashes including his ongoing deep run in the $10,000 Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo 8-or-Better Championship.
Legend Erik Seidel is next with 102 cashes and with 8 bracelets sits six behind Hellmuth’s world-leading 14.
Hot on their heels on both fronts? A legend himself in Daniel Negreanu, who scored his 100th career WSOP cash in the same $10k 7-Card Stud Championship.
Negreanu finished 18th for $15,182 – his sixth Top 20 finish of the 2017 WSOP and 8th cash overall.
But despite the deep runs he’s still just 5th in the somewhat-perplexing WSOP Player of the Year rankings and short of his goal of winning 3 bracelets this summer.
It’s still fair to say his performance has matched his aspirations – but poker variance hasn’t complied.
Any way you look at it, though, 100 WSOP cashes is an accomplishment to celebrate. Kudos to Daniel – and here’s to 100 more.

2) Run Good Eat Good
Speaking of things to celebrate at the WSOP … if you’ve ever sampled the food options at the Rio you know at the top of the deck might be the healthy, home-cooked, hand-delivered meal plan for poker stars, All-American Dave.
At $23.12 a pop it may be at the top end of the price range for the average grinder, but if you care about good fuel for you body it’s hard to beat.
If you can get it free, that’s even sweeter. And Natural8 is hooking poker players up in a big way.
Starting today Natural8 is giving away 10 All-American Dave meals a day, at random, all the way through till July 12.
That’s 210 hot and delicious meals delivered right to poker players at the table! That’s pretty generous. Check the details in the tweet below:

Who exactly are those Team Hot pros to take selfies with? Xuan Liu, Kitty Kuo and Dong Kim, of course. GL!
3) 24 High Like a Boss
We knew Will Kassouf had become a bit of a legend himself over the past year or so … but enough to personalize your own football jersey with his most infamous catchphrase?
That’s some boss-level status, for sure. Kevin Saul asks a good question about #24 though – kind of muddies the statement a bit.
