Lee Makes a Tough Laydown

[user75311] • Level 8: 200-400, 100 ante

Two players, one of which was Bernard Lee, checked to Jimmy Fricke after the draw and he bet 2,500. The third player in the hand check-raised to 5,200 and Lee clearly did not anticipate this. After mulling over the decision for a little while he decided to fold and Fricke quickly called.

The all in player showed an Eight-Five and Fricke mucked. "I had an Eighty-Seven!" Lee declared. This began a conversation at the table about who would have called and who would have folded. Lee also explained that had the third opponent actually had more chips, Lee would have been able to make the call. "There's no way he's going to get [Fricke] to fold with that bet. He has to have it."

Despite the hand, Lee is standing tall with over 20,000 and Fricke still has a healthy stack as well.
