2014 World Series of Poker

Event #15: $3,000 Six-Handed No-Limit Hold'em
Days: 1

A Lucky Double for Volpe

Level 9 : 300-600, 75 ante

Paul Volpe is running well today. Just a few hours ago (literally) he won a WSOP gold bracelet by defeating Daniel Negreanu in heads-up play in Event #13: $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball Championship, and then he jumped straight into this tournament where he is still hanging on.

In a recent hand, Volpe got his stack of 10,275 all in preflop and was in bad shape against hist opponent.

Volpe: {k-Diamonds}{q-Spades}
Opponent: {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts}

Like we said, Volpe is running good today and that was evidenced when the flop came down {6-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} to give him the lead with a pair of queens. The {9-Hearts} turn kept him firmly in the lead, and the {8-Diamonds} river gave him the pot.
