The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a bundle of rubles, a shot of vodka and all the mink stolls you need to keep your afternoon poker news jewels warm.

Have a hot tip for a future 3-Bet? Drop us a note about it in the comments.

Today in the 3-Bet we find Dan “Jungleman” Cates letting loose on Isildur1, Fedor Holz goes deep with ME champ Scott Blumstein and Russia gets more poker love.

1) Isildur1 … Wtf?

Interested in high-stakes legend and free-speaker Dan “Jungleman” Cates going off for close to 2 hours about Isildur1’s questionable poker decisions and his neverending durrrr Challenge?

How about the big games at Aria and Bobby’s Room, the secret cash-game scene in Asia and the future of online poker?

We thought you might be. Here he is w/ Doug Polk from yesterday:

2) Two Primed Minds Get Together

Got another hour? How about a Primed Mind sitdown between retired poker genius Fedor Holz and 2017 WSOP Main Event champ Scott Blumstein, who took his Primed Mind lessons and rode them all the way to the world championship last month:

3) All Jets Lead to Sochi Again

Surreal Sochi casino.

And if you’ve ever dreamed of playing in those soft, soft Russian fields you might want to add a trip to Sochi to your wish list as two nice festivals are going down there in September and October.

First, partypoker heads to Sochi in September for the $9 million GTD MILLIONS Russia festival – what will the largest poker event in CIS history. That’ll run from Sep. 4-14 and you can qualify on partypoker right now for as little as 1 cent.

If you don’t get it sorted for Sept. PokerStars swoops in for its newest PokerStars Festival Sochi in mid-October. Running Oct. 16-22 it’ll offer two low buy-in events ($180/$370) plus an $1,100 Main Event and $2,2000 High Roller.

The Main Event has $500,000 GTD and is sure to be both good value and an unforgettable cultural experience. Qualifying, as you might have guessed, is also underway on PokerStars.
