When You’re Hot You’re Hot
Bernard Lee has just sucked out on another player to eliminate him and extend his lead. He reraised a player all in preflop with 99 who was holding AA. The inevitable 9 fell on turn to send the pot his way. He’s up to 167,500 now.
What is it to me? The guy with the aces against Bernard Lee was my brother. It sent him out in something like 230th place, but his initial $1500 buy-in netted him over $3000, better than doubling that money. Not bad for a days work. My jealousy continues, but this gives me that much more incentive to step it up so I can go next year.
