Event #30: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold’em Championship

Richard Lee Lighting 'Em Up

• Nivel 2: 25-50, 0 ante

We caught up on a hand involving three players and a board reading {A-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}. One player had moved all-in from late position for 2,500 and another did the same for a little under 2,000. Richard Lee thought things through and then made the call with his bigger stack, putting both opponents at risk.


Lee: {J-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}
Opponent # 1: {A-Clubs}{Q-Spades}
Opponent # 2: {7-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}

The first all-in player had flopped two-pair, aces and queens and the second player pushed with his flush draw. Lee held a royal flush draw and combined with his open ended straight draw he had plenty of outs to work with.

Turn: {K-Spades}
River: {7-Clubs}

Lee clapped his hands after making his Broadway straight but the opponent holding two pair sat back down and clapped as well, apparently only having seen the other player's flush draws. The dealer showed him the winning straight and the player cursed in frustration before hitting the rail.
