Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Davies Wins Chips, Fame

Shamus • Level 8: 400-800, 100 ante

We came on this one as the turn betting was being completed. The board showed {2-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{8-Spades}{Q-Spades}, and it looked as though Doug Lee was calling a bet of Scott Davies', his call putting the pot at about 5,000.

The river brought the {10-Diamonds} and a bet of 3,300 from Lee. Davies thought a few moments, then made the call. Lee showed {5-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}, Davies {9-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}, and Davies claimed the pot.

"You raised with that," joked Lee after, and they both laughed. "Suited connectors, yeah," answered Davies. The two have been in conversation since Lee was moved to the table, including Davies asking Lee about his WSOP-Circuit win (in 2005, right here at the Rio Hotel and Casino) and the ring he received for doing so.

Noting that the hand was being chronicled, Davies piped up. "Hey, I'm going to be famous… I took a small pot off Doug Lee!"

Lee has about 72,000 at the moment, while Davies is up around 66,000.
