Today in the 3-Bet we find a major diversion for Streamboat 2, Jungleman arrives on Poker After Dark and Daniel Negreanu gets acute on angle shooting.
1) Irma Alters Course of SB 2
In the face of a Category 5 hurricane, playing online poker – even the much-anticipated World Championship of Online Poker – becomes really, really insignificant.
After witnessing the devastation of Hurricane Harvey the Streamboat 2 crew – Bill Perkins, Jeff Gross, Jamie and Matt Staples and Kevin Martin (who were in the Virgin Islands getting things ready to go) – had a decision to make with Hurricane Irma heading their way fast.
With landfall expected within the next 48 hours, they made the easy call – evacuate and play another day.
While there was some good news today as they announced the winners of the Streamboat packages, they’ll have to wait until an undetermined date to live out the Streamboat dream.
If you’re one of the lucky winners, congrats. We look forward to seeing your exploits on stream soon. For all those in the Caribbean and South Florida, stay safe.
2) Jungle, Schulman, Polk Rumble on PAD
We’ve shared our enthusiasm for the return of Poker After Dark on PokerGO a few times already so we won’t gush more about what a delight it is.
We will say we’re very much looking forward to this week’s action, though, dubbed “Rumble in the Jungle” thanks to the presence of one Dan “Jungleman” Cates.
Action will start today at 5pm PT with a winner-take-all $300k SnG; tomorrow and Thursday it’ll be $300/$600 No-Limit Hold’em cash games with a $200,000 minimum buy-in.
Yowsa. Should be great.
Here’s who will be joining the Jungle each day:
|Date||Tuesday, Sept 5||Wednesday, Sept 6||Thursday, Sept 7|

3) Negreanu Knows Angles
When you’ve been in the poker industry for a couple of years, chances are you’ve seen a few incidents of angle shooting at the tables.
If you’ve been deep in the poker world in Las Vegas and around the world for over two decades? You’ve maybe seen them all.
Inspired by a couple of recent ‘angle shooting’ incidents Daniel Negreanu delves into his thoughts on the matter in his newest Vlog alongside his take on the upcoming Poker Masters, PokerStars changes and more.
