Re: Doug Lee, biggest toolbox ever?

So Doug and two other guys get in a big pot where Doug bets the turn on a Q74T two diamond board, gets raised and the preflop reraiser coldcalls. Doug calls and river is the jack of diamonds. Doug bets out like 1/3 pot and the raiser from the last street now shoves. Doug has like 20% of the pot left behind in his stack and tanks for 3 minutes or so. Someone calls the clock on him and he sits there. Floor comes over, starts to count down.

When they get to 5-10 seconds left, Doug puts his big chips on top of his stack of chips and pushes it forward (in a dramatic way) just before the line. The line at bellagio for tournaments is binding, but anything that doesn't go over the line doesn't count. So he holds this for 3 seconds looking for a response and the whole table is looking at him saying "WHAT THE ****." The floor is standing RIGHT THERE and says 'hand is dead.' The floor looks at him and says "I have seen that before, you do that again and you get a penalty."

Doug stumbles over his words a bit and claims that he was not trying to angleshoot at all.

Later, the celebration occurs on the river when he makes the nut flush and tries to explain to us that no, it is in fact okay to celebrate in this way because he is ALL IN FOR HIS TOURNAMENT. Duh!

Then I spite shoved over his 3.5x raise with AJ and he called with AK and he stood up and yelled "HOLD," so he was already drawing dead.

I HAVE BUSTED THE DOUG LEE IN THE 25K. ALL SHALL FEAR ME.

Re: Doug Lee, biggest toolbox ever?

Last WSOP I dealt to him in a 5-10NL game, he gets allin with some guy on the turn, and has the losing hand, and tries, repeatedly to short the allin amount while I am telling him the exact amount over and over, as well as the difference he owes. I guess not exactly the best story in the world, but it put him firmly in the scumbag category in my book..

I enjoyed the story about "picking off one of his bluffs when he was holding Q-7 in HJ. (Hero) was BB with A-K."

The way I heard it was that there was still a sidepot and that Doug celebrated hitting the nutflush on the turn or river before the action was completed on the sidepot, Is this correct?

That would be a penalty as it gives information about a hand in progress....

Gobbo, that story was so pure. So beautiful. A tear just trickled down my cheek. Thanks for that. There's nothing more inspirational on a Monday morning than reading about The Superdoucher getting his just desserts.

Dude if I were Doug I'd fire you right now.

Another funny story about Doug from Aussie Millions 08. A few days after the main event, I'm there for one or two more days and I'm playing 2/5 NL in the poker room. Doug is at the table and this is my first time having the pleasure of playing the gentleman. The whole table is calling him "Dougie" which needless to say he is not enjoying. Seems like the Australians don't find him very awesome either.

He loses like 2-3k during the course of the night, but the greatest quote came from him when someone pretty much flat out said "who the **** are you?" and he responded with "you don't know me? So and so said I was the biggest up and coming young new star."

I'll let that speak for itself.

Mr. Lee looks more like an early teenage lesbian Asian girl trying out for the gymnastics team for the next Summer Olympics.
