Paul Volpe Has Gone From the Penthouse to the Outhouse Here on Day 2
Paul Volpe Has Gone From the Penthouse to the Outhouse Here on Day 2

Every poker player accepts a certain level of inherent volatility during their pursuit of edge-based gamble, but the game of Pot-Limit Omaha can produce swings that even the most experienced pros find hard to stomach. That has been true here on Day 2, as mere minutes after recording Paul Volpe's ascent to the top of our chip counts, the vagaries of fate have seen fit to dismiss him from further play.

We caught the action on the turn with the board reading {8-Spades}{4-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}. Michael Schwartz led out for a bet of 19,200, and Volpe raised to 84,700 holding {9-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{7-Spades} for top two pair. Schwartz put his last 105,300 into the middle, and rolled over {9-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} for top set. Volpe was crushed, and the {10-Hearts} on the river left him on the short end of yet another massive postflop PLO confrontation.

Volpe managed to score a quadruple up with his short stack after this hand, but his comeback attempt fell short, and he was eliminated midway through the second level of play.
