Volpe Nears the Two Million Mark

Paul Volpe

Paul Volpe just knocked out another player, and he's now very close to having the chip lead.

The board read {2-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}, when Volpe checked to Dutchman Leon Piso who moved all in from the button. Piso had 216,000 chips left, and Volpe needed about half a minuten before he made the call.

Volpe turned over {K-Hearts}{J-Spades}, and he was well in front against Piso's {A-Diamonds}{10-Spades}. The river was the {8-Clubs}, and Piso was knocked out.

The Dutchman explained shortly afterwards that Volpe had raised pre flop to 17,000, and he three-bet to 42,000. Volpe called, and opted to check-call 45,000 on the turn.

Piso was happy about his deep run, but questioned his own play on the final hand of his tournament. He cashed $32,871 for his 367th place finish.
