Re: Doug Lee, biggest toolbox ever?

I want to start off by thanking 2p2 for the greatest thread I have ever read. Maybe the greatest THING I have ever read.

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.

the funny part is, I can actually see him doing this, so clearly as if I was right at the table with you, i know exactly what you're talking about having the pleasure of playing with him myself. (See story where he taught me "about a block bet, you know something high level players use")

Wow. I am honored. And to think in the past this was always my "time my straight flush got beaten by a royal" story.

Only reason I even knew at the time it was the great Doug Lee is that after he cut ahead of us I turned to my friend and said "Who was that assclown?"

Friend responded with "Oh, that's Doug Lee...he's famous around here...for all the wrong reasons."

Re: Doug Lee, biggest toolbox ever?

Speechless, absolutely speechless. I have read this thread over the past several days and am just absolutely amazed at the douchiness on display. May this thread live on. And I can not believe he cut in line, for some reason that almost seems worse than all the angle shooting.
