Just Because There Isn't A Mouse, Doesn't Mean StanMan Can't Click It Back

CPPT Main Event (Day 2)
Level 21 (5,000/10,000/1,000)
Total Entrants: 282
Players Remaining: 20
Chip Average: 410,000
Stanley Lee (West Hartford, CT)
While many players remaining in this Card Player Poker Tour Main Event have multiple live tournament titles and hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of live career tournament earnings Stanley Lee (West Hartford, CT) is a more or less "raw" live tournament pro.

But, we'd go out on a limb to say, that other than WSOP Main Event Champion Greg Raymer, Lee is the most experienced tournament player in the field as he has multiple million dollars in online tournament earnings and until recently had spent the majority of the last few years grinding in Costa Rica to continue to crush the virtual felt.

Lee decided to rededicate himself to live poker this year and after phenomenal start to that career at the Borgata Winter Poker Open where he bubbled the $2,000,000 GTD opening event Final Table, won his first major live title a few days later and made just under $80,000 in his first full week of "live" poker, he's followed that up with a top twenty finish, at least, in this CPPT Main Event.

This score is his first "live" Main Event cash, but Lee has made deep runs in some of the online world's biggest events multiple times and even though he's not planted in front of a computer screen with a mouse in this palm, he still knows how to click it back as he's been on the offensive since taking his seat at Table 1.

Lee's aggressive strategy is a double edged sword, but it seems like he's been able to pick the perfect spots to really "attack" and minimize his loses when he's too far out on a limb.

It's been a near perfect balancing act so far as he and the rest of this field are just over a level away from Day 3, as everyone will bag up their chips at the end of Level 22.

Lee is currently playing just under 600,000, well above the chip average.
