Hometown Hero

Richard Lee apparently does more than make the final table of the world’s biggest poker tournemants and share a name with Robert E. Lee’s father. Mr. Lee, the newly annointed poker God of my hometown, is being investigated as a bookie!

Police are investigating local poker champion, Richard Lee. They believe he was working as a ‘bookie,’ placing big bets for other people online. Online gambling is illegal in the state of Texas.

The VICE unit has been investigating Lee for more than 8 months. On Tuesday, they obtained a search warrant to sieze his property, including his cars, computers, and hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash.

Yeah, Those Sunglasses Really Say, “Have My Money By Tomorrow Or It’s Your Knee Caps”

We now have Richard Lee’s response to the accusations.
