Paul Volpe is the Venetian High Roller chip leader on dinner break as the field nears the money bubble. 

Paul Volpe won the last pot on Table 58 and managed to carry that momentum over to his new table where he has since taken the chip lead from Adrian Mateos. Their battles are far from over, but for now, Volpe is winning the bar as dinner break hits.

Volpe opened for a standard raise on the button and Mateos defended his big blind to see a Q♣Q6♣ flop. Mateos checked and Volpe bet 12,000. Mateos called and the K turn went checked by both players. Mateos bet 36,000 on the 3♣ river and Volpe wasted zero time flicking in a chip to call. Mateos briefly flashed his cards but they went mucked when Volpe turned over K♣5 to take the pot.

Volpe is playing 730,000 and is the dinner break chip leader while Mateos is down to his lowest point in a few hours with 430,000.

Registration remains open for the High Roller as players head out on their dinner break and will be officially closed once Level 20 starts at approximately 9:40 pm. Updated chip counts for the field will be posted shortly.
