The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a disintegrated Ace, a cloned upgrade and a nicely timed reload of the top afternoon poker news power move.

Have something you want to see featured in a future 3-Bet? Let us know in the comments.

Today in the 3-Bet we find an intriguing new game innovation from PokerStars, Daniel Negreanu reaches out and Timex turns $1.9m into $12,000.

1) Poker + Powers

As we’ve seen from the heavy changes in PokerStars’ rewards program, an overhaul of its seating process and a sit-down or two with its key executives, the biggest online poker site in the world has its focus square on one thing these days:

Drawing new players into the game and keeping them there with new products designed with the casual poker player in mind. Spin & Gos, Beat the Clock and KO Poker are just a few examples.

Add an intriguing new one to that list: PokerStars Power Up. A bit reminiscent of the GPI’s HoldemX (although in development before), it’s “traditional Texas Holdem” powered up with, well powers. Check the clip:

Speaking of Timex … He’s been a great new addition to the growing list of poker Twitch streamers over the past week or so and is definitely worth a subscribe if you’re into getting world-class poker strategy tips for free.

He’s also good for a great poker anecdote or two, including this gem about how the biggest score of his poker career so far – his $1.9m third-place finish at the 2014 Aussie Millions $250k – turned into just a $12,000 payday (Clip starts at 2:49:00).
