Event #4: $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Solid Start for Lee


Bernard Lee began the day with 24,100 in chips, but has now moved to about 72,000 after a couple of nice hands that have gone his way.

On the first one of the three that we'll talk about, the cutoff seat raised to 2,500 and Lee called from the small blind. [Removed:163] also called from the big blind and the flop came down {6-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{4-Clubs}. Everyone checked and the turn added the {2-Diamonds} to the board. Everyone checked again. The river completed the board with the {J-Clubs} and Lee fired 3,700. Sheikh called, but the cutoff seat folded. Lee showed the {10-Clubs}{8-Clubs} for a flush and Sheikh mucked his hand.

After that, there was a hand where Allen Bari raised to 2,000. Lee three-bet to 5,800 and Bari folded. Lee showed two aces.

A little while later, Lee was involved again with Sheikh, this time on the final board of {K-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}. The pot was approximately 13,000 and Sheikh checked to Lee. Lee bet 5,300 and that was good enough to force a fold from Sheikh.
