Richard “The Chinaman” Lee and His San Antonio Sweatshirt Charged in San Antonio Bookmaking Investigation in His Hometown of San Antonio
It’s been a long time since we’ve heard anything about the illegal gambling case against 2006 WSOP final table-ist Richard "The Chinaman" Lee. Last we even thought about it was at the 2007 WSOP when we spotted Lee, wearing his San Antonio sweatshirt, hanging around the Sau Paulo and playing a single table satellite against Leif Force, Daniel Baldev, and Miserable Fuck.
Despite some opinions that Lee would not be charged (mostly because some high ranking Alamo officials were rumored to be clients), Lee has now face (a negotiated misdemeanor) charge of "gambling promotion." Arraignment is set for November 7th and Lee could face a year in jail and a $4,000 fine.
