Volpe Wasn't Feeling Good About It...Until the River

[user101598] • Level 9: 400-800, 0 ante
Noah Schwartz

When we arrived at Table 365 in the Tan Section of the Amazon Room to see that Noah Schwartz was all in and at risk for around 40,000 holding {k-Hearts}{k-Clubs}, and he was in great shape to double through Paul Volpe, who was dominated with {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}.

Schwartz remained ahead on the flop ({q-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}) and on the turn ({5-Spades}), but the {a-Spades} spiked on the river to give Volpe a winning pair of aces. Schwartz threw his hands in the air in disgust, bid his former tablemates adieu, and exited the tournament area.

"You Barry Greenstein'ed him," Bryan Piccioli told Volpe, referring to The Bear's iconic book Ace on the River.

"I wasn't feeling good about it," Volpe admitted. "Until the river."
