Volpe Takes a Hit

We stopped by Benjamin Volpe's table, but it appears that he's been cut down to size in the early part of this blind level, with a few more chips heading into the direction of Frenchman Victor Choupeaux.

The action folded around to Choupeaux who raised to 2,500 from the hijack before the flop; the cutoff, button and small blind folded, but Volpe called before check-calling Choupeaux's bet of 3,400 on the flop of {10-Spades}{7-Hearts}{6-Spades} before check-folding to Choupeaux's bet of 5,100 on the turn of the {3-Clubs}.

Although Volpe has had chips taken from him, it also appears that Choupeaux had a chunk of change removed as well, as he's now only back up to 20,000.
