Elias Doubles Through Volpe

• Level 17: 3,000-6,000, 1,500 ante

Darren Elias opened with a raise from the cutoff and Paul Volpe made it 40,000 to go from the button. Action came back around to Elias and he four-bet shoved all in for his last 97,000. Volpe called and Elias instantly stood pat. Volpe then went into the tank, pondering his action. Over a minute passed.

"I really don't know what to do," said Volpe.

After a little more thought, Volpe came to the decision to draw one. Elias fanned {10-}{6-}{5-}{4-}{2-} and Volpe showed {9-}{8-}{7-}{2-}. Volpe then reached out for his discarded card and flipped it over, revealing the {10-Clubs} and showing that he correctly broke a ten-nine.

Volpe squeezed out his new card but quickly saw that it was paint. He flashed the {j-Clubs} and Elias was awarded the double up. He's now sitting around 235,000 while Volpe has fallen to 133,000.
