Poker host and life coach Lee Davy steps into the GRID to talk about a critical hand in his career with ten-eight suited, in a 1K tournament in Blackpool. Lee was working on the railway at the time, but was also in tens of thousands of dollars of gambling debt for horse racing and sportsbetting. He bought the 1K buy-in on his already overstretched credit card. With 60K+ up top, Lee realized he could get out of debt with a win. “I was playing for all the wrong reasons. It was coming from a place of terror and scarcity.”
He opened the small blind against a good friend of his with ten-eight suited. The flop came Ace-Eight-Eight. Bingo. When Lee got all the money in, his friend turned over aces. Lee talks about how this hand, and his overall attitude in the event was a wake-up moment and how he later blossomed into a voice and coach for overcoming addiction.
Lee Davy delves into the coaching program he founded, 1000 Days Sober Experience, and how to best support friends who are trying to overcome various addictions. He also talks about his approach to interviews with poker’s biggest legends from Tom Dwan to Phil Ivey, and some of his all time favorite subjects.
Now that Lee has covered ten-eight suited, there are 121 combos left on thepokergrid.com.
