Volpe Sinks Sternheimer

Paul Volpe

Action started with Paul Volpe, who raised it up to 26,000. It folded around to Philip Sternheimer in the big blind, and he three bet it to 61,000. Volpe tossed in the call, and they were off to a flop.

That flop came {5-Hearts}{5-Spades}{6-Spades}. Sternheimer led out for 71,000, and Volpe came along for the turn, which was the {q-Spades}. Sternheimer checked this time, and after getting a rough idea of Sternheimer's stack, Volpe fired out 125,000. Sternheimer called, and the river brought the {10-Spades}.

Sternheimer quickly checked, and Volpe moved all in after about 10 seconds of thought. This bet put Sternheimer to a decision for his last 330,000, and he tanked for about three to four minutes. Eventually, he called, and Volpe flipped over {6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} for a flopped full house.

Sternheimer said nice hand and mucked his hand, but the cameras requested it be turned over, and the dealer showed {8-Spades}{8-Clubs} for a flush. "I saw the vein in your neck so I thought you were bluffing," Sternheimer said after his hand was tabled.

Paul responded with "I'm always nervous. Unlucky man". After that pot, Volpe is back over three million chips.
