Re: Doug Lee, biggest toolbox ever?

Not sure if he still does, but, he used go on vacations and stuff alone and then try to pick up chicks by telling them he was a pro. He kind of just tries to work himself into groups of people. There are some funny stories out there if you look for them. Guy is as big of a dorky toolbox as humanly possible.

Re: Doug Lee, biggest toolbox ever?

He may be bad or whatever but does anyone remember when Jennifer Harman knocked over some of his chips on purpose after he eliminated her from that circuit event? Pure class imo.

if he won a million, how much did he spend?
i did not know he was in the top 20 best poker players in the world
and all this time i thought he was a lucky donkey
I wonder how he'll do in his second rookie year?

The Jen Harmon pushing his chips over was all in fun. She said they were friends and that she was just messing with him and he took it just fine.

Re: Doug Lee, biggest toolbox ever?

Doug was "tearin it up" on the 3/6 limit tables at Harrah's last summer while I was out there. He was talking about being a pro and explaining the game to a pretty decent chick that was with him.

Best part was that two of my buddies immediately tried to get a PLO game going hoping he would sit in it and donk off some of his "pro" money to us

Not a lot of "pros" that my friends would push to get into a game with...

I like the creepy, winking, animated Doug Lee welcoming vistitors to the site...

Who hadn't wondered what the '05 Rio Circuit Champ was up to these days?

Re: Doug Lee, biggest toolbox ever?

Yes his name is Technologic


just kidding! I play 2/5 with Doug Lee at the Bellagio quite a bit, he is an interesting guy. Shoots a LOT of angles when he plays, plays extremely unconventionally, and asks to see every hand after they are mucked. He's not busto, btw, he just plays 2/5 for fun and jumps back up to $100/200 LHE when he gets bored.

Re: Doug Lee, biggest toolbox ever?

My favorite Doug Lee moment is Kido Pham getting Lee to put all his money in stone dead against Pham in the televised circuit event (at Bally's?).

Pham keeps talking throughout the entire hand, saying Lee's full name over and over.

"I'm going to call you, Doug Lee."

"I check to you, Doug Lee."

"I know what you're going to do, Doug Lee."

Before you know it, Lee is all in on the turn with K2 vs. JT on a KQ9x board.

Then Lee says, "It's not my day."

Re: Doug Lee, biggest toolbox ever?

Without reading anything but the title of OP, YES. The first time I've ever met him, a year and a half or so ago, he actually asked me (with no possibility of it being sarcasm) 'You don't know who I am?', when I asked him for his name.

"Back up to $100-$200". Like somehow the planets would align and we would be fortunate enough that he considered that his regular game while he was in town.

And yes, "bored". His A-game consists of multiple min-buys as he shortstacks us limit donks into foolishly putting him all in with often 2, 3, or sometimes 5 outs! Over and over and over. And onetime I saw him win a pot.

Onetime Doug Lee sat down at an dead break table and immediately it filled up. True story.

Re: Doug Lee, biggest toolbox ever?

Here's a good(ish) story

I have several friends who have played regularly with Doug, have known him for a while and are somewhat friendly with him.

One day during a tournament (either WSOP or BC or somehwre) one of them runs into Doug, walks up to him and says "Hey Doug." Lee doesnt acknowledge him but takes a napkin from the guy, autographs it and keeps walking.

Re: Doug Lee, biggest toolbox ever?

i know him a bit and played with him a bunch one weekend in calgary, both tourneys and live. they called him the canadian super bomber (or just super bomber when you are actually in canada, but whatev) and they seemed to build the games around him.

he has real estate money independent of poker and if he is even close to a break even player overall i would be SHOCKED. i have never seen the super tool side of him but i knew him a bit before he thought of himself as famous. funny thread about someone who really can't play poker very well but thinks they can. hmmmmmmm.

go super bomber go. lol. poor doug kim, i think they may be polar opposites from all i can tell. i love the story of the dead table filling up around him. i will tell that one often.
