Lee Spreading It Around

  • Big Stax XXV 500 Main Event 4:00 PM
  • Level 29 (50000/100000/15000)
  • Total Entries: 874
  • Players Remaining: 6

John Lee held the chip-lead coming into Level 29 but over the first 30-minutes he has doubled up two players and fallen back into the pack.

John Lee opened to 300k from under the gun. Action folded to Jospeh Cappadona in the big blind and he moved all-in for 1.7M. Lee made the call and they would be off to the races.

Lee K♣J♣ vs Cappadona 9♣9♦ Pot: 3.59M

Board: 9♥8♣4♠10♠8♥

Cappadona fades the open-ended straight draw that Lee picked up on the turn and survives the flip.

John Lee opened the button to 300k and was shoved on by John Martin from the big blind for 3.14M total. Lee made the call and would be well behind this time.

Lee A♠7♣ vs Martin J♥J♠ Pot: 6.87M

Board: Q♦7♦Q♠9♦3♥

Lee picked up some additional outs on the flop but could not improve from there. He is now down to ~6M and Justin Dodds has taken over the chip-lead.
