Doug Lee just doubled up in dramatic fashion here at the Bike.
Preflop, Doug opened shoved for 145,000 from the cutoff. The button was in the tank for a bit but eventually folded his hand. After a quick thought, Mack Lee made the call from the small blind.
"Thanks for the double up," Doug said after the call.
After the big blind folded though, the cards were turned on their backs and Doug was in a world of hurt.
"I had ," the player on the button said, which one take away at least one of Doug's outs.
The flop fell putting Doug in an even bigger hole, and he even stood up about to walk away from the table.
The turn though gave Doug a boatload of extra outs, and they were outs he would hit on the river.
"I always win, I told ya!" Doug said after the hand. "I trapped him," he said in Hellmuth-esque style.
After that hand, Doug has moved up to around 300,000 in chips while Mack has dropped to around 525,000.
