Re: Doug Lee, biggest toolbox ever?

I saw this guy at venetian quite a few times. He was wearing the same outfit like everyday. It was those shorts and white socks and sneakers. Does anyone else notice this?


He then sat at my 1/2NL with like $100 and then left after like 30 minutes. I then saw him play 2/5NL quite a few times at V as well.

Re: Doug Lee, biggest toolbox ever?

I kinda feel sorry for Doug. How would you guys feel if someone googled your name and the first search result would be "[YOUR NAME], biggest toolbox ever?". And when you type "Doug Lee" into Google it already suggests the words "toolbox", "poker" and "biggest toolbox ever". So f mean!

All in for his remaining $471? And you had $261? Mighty specific numbers u knew there. Usually when someone has me covered by that much in a live game the chip count is "he has you covered (by a lot)"

Also, nice hand range u put him on.

I'll add my own Doug Lee Story to the mix...not as good as most, but I feel I do need to post in this epic thread. At the time, I had no idea I was brushed by such greatness:

In 2005 (I think...give or take a year) I was playing the Bellagio weekly. Midway through the tournament, a hand came up between me and the biggest nit at the table. Forget exact action but board was 7x 8x Td Jd Qd. I had the 8d 9d. Nit and i got in a raising war, and he ended up all in, with me covering. He had Ad Kd for royal and I had a good story. Across the table, Doug Lee is observing it all, taking in all the nuances, as only Doug Lee can. When we tabled our cards, he gives me a disapproving look, and shakes his head in a rather condescending manner. I see him whispering something to his neighbor, but I do not know what.

A few levels later, right before the money, I again get it in with Nit. He raised PF and I cold call with QQ. Board comes Q Rag Rag. Nit bets, I raise, he pushes and I call. He tables AA. A on the turn and IGHN. Again, Doug Lee gives me a disapproving look and the head shake, followed by table chatter which I do not stay to hear.

An hour or so later Doug Lee is behind me in line at dinner. He comes up to me, seeks me out, and says (me paraphrasing) "Man...you seemed solid. I really thought you knew better. It was obvious he had the Royal that hand. I would have folded in your situation. Again with the QQ. You had to put him on aces, and you should have mucked it preflop when he raised. That is what separates a great player (gestures towards himself) from everyone else. That hand you called with QQ I had KK and mucked."

Me "..."

Doug "Well, I hope you learned something. You know I finished in third (I forget place he actually said) and got very unlucky not to win it. I should have won it but my opponent made a really bad call and got lucky."

Me "..."

Doug "Ok I'm sure I'll see you around. I'll be playing 100/200 later you should sit with me. I will take it easy on you."

He then proceeds to cut me in line and go to dinner.
[x] tears in my eyes hahahahahaha

Re: Doug Lee, biggest toolbox ever?

I've read bits of the thread over the last couple years and lmao reading some of the stories/photoshops etc... I had the pleasure of sitting next to him for about 10 hours on 06/14 at the V during the 1.1k deep stack event. He arrived a little late to the table and, in fairness, built up a pretty big chipstack early (he did final table this event) by raising a lot preflop and taking some pots down uncontested post. On other hands he was pretty dam lucky to hit low trips on the turn several times, and a runner runner boat for a full house to win a large pot. He did slow roll one guy and of course talked a few times about being on espn six times.

One newcomer to the table said he thinks he played with him before at Sams Town. Doug laughed that off, saying he would never play there. Then he tells dude to his left how he gets that all the time, about how he's recognized for being on espn (again, 6 times). Of course he showed his ring to same dude later.

The most annoying thing was him laughing at his own jokes when nobody was listening to him, especially the dude next to him who had his earphones on, but was being talked to the most.

Several times after winning a pot, he would throw his ante to the dealer as if it were a tip. The dealer would jokingly take it as a tip before tossing it back. This routine may have been funny when it was first done in 1978, but the joke's a bit tired by now. Doug did this a minimum of 5 or 6 times, laughing at his brilliance each time.

Also, once he called a player's all in. The dealer tells them both to flip over the hands, which they don't do right away. Dougie wanted to see the other players first, then after the hand he is mildly berating the other player for not flipping his cards over first/right away, as if it f'in mattered since they both have to show (it was before the river). A kid to my right tried to explain that to doug, but that was useless.

He was extremely condescending of all other players, always saying something about some player he busted as they left the table. He criticized me early because I called his post flop bet HU w/ A2 on a kjx board. My A paired on the turn which made me win a decent early pot against him. He claimed to have QQ (doubt it), and he continued to bring up the A2 hand several times over the next few hours.

There was one time he shoved on a paired board (5,5) with a possible straight (wheel cards) out there as well. One guy calls (88), other guy tanks and shows his 5,4, folding. Dougs flips over his 99, jumps out of his seat, self congratulating himself for making such a great play. I'm not sure, but he may have referred to himself in the 3rd person.

I know, nothing earth shattering or new here, but Doug Lee is overall a piece of crap that I hope to never have to sit next to again. that is all...

Re: Doug Lee, biggest toolbox ever?

he has a recent video on quadjacks and he talks about 2+2 a little bit

when asked by marco why not create an sn on the forums as yourself and go and defend your name (or something along those lines) he responded with basically saying he doesnt have time to respond to trailer trash (around 9:45)

also starts to talk about 2+2 around the 6:20 mark
