Paul Volpe Eliminated in 20th Place ($294,601)

Paul Volpe - 20th Place

On the first hand of the level, Steven Gee open-raised all in from the cutoff for around 4 million, Danny Wong reraised all in from the button for a little less than 8 million, and Paul Volpe called from the small blind with his last 3.5 million or so. Robert Salaburu folded, and the three players tabled their hands:

Paul Volpe: {A-Clubs}{K-Hearts}
Steven Gee: {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts}
Danny Wong: {10-Spades}{10-Clubs}

The flop came {5-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}, giving Gee an open-ended straight draw. The turn was the {J-Clubs}, and Wong still was in the lead. The river then brought the {4-Clubs}, giving Gee his straight and a big boost to his stack. Meanwhile, Volpe is out in 20th.

One more elimination and they will redraw to the final two tables.
