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.
Like we said, Volpe is running good today and that was evidenced when the flop came down to give him the lead with a pair of queens. The turn kept him firmly in the lead, and the river gave him the pot.
