Paul Volpe was on the uptick following his double up and subsequent elimination of Chris Hunichen but that is now over. Volpe shipped a double to Sam Soverel in a tough spot that gave Soverel back the chip lead and leaves Volpe with less than five big blinds.
Soverel opened on the button for a standard raise and Volpe called in the big blind. Volpe checked the 7♦7♣6♣ flop and Soverel continued for a similar amount. Volpe called and the 5♠ fell on the turn. Volpe check-called for 275,000 more after inquiring about Soverel’s remaining stack and the 2♥ hit the river. Volpe checked and insta-called Soverel’s all-in shove of 980,000.
Volpe showed 7♠4♦ for flopped trips but Soverel’s 9♣8♠ turned straight left Volpe grimacing as he counted out chips to send over. Soverel is back in the lead with 2,880,000 while Volpe is left with just four big blinds.
