Paul Volpe Got His First Bracelet Beating Daniel Negreanu Heads-Up

Posted 24 days 2 hours ago by FloatingFish

The 2014 World Series of Poker Event #13: $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball Championship brought us the toughest final tables so far in the series.

Only 87 top notch players payed the $10,000 entry fee, but thanks to the friendly structure it took 2 days to get to the final table. At the beginning of the 3rd and last day, two well-known Team PokerStars Pros aspired to extend their bracelet collection, but both Jason Mercier and Daniel Negreanu got denied by Paul Volpe after all.

Volpe began heads up play with a strong lead over Negreanu and KidPoker was never quite able to gain any footing. Volpe never relinquished his chip lead over the 85-hand heads up match, and beat his opponent in a convincing fashion.
