Volpe Calls Despite Spades

We found Paul Volpe and Brian Altman looking down at a board that read {K-Spades}{4-Spades}{A-Hearts}{6-Spades}. Volpe checked to Altman and he also decided to check his option.

Fifth street brought a fourth spade- the {8-Spades} - and Volpe checked once more. Altman reached into his stack and came out with a bet of 10,200 into the pot of about 11,000.

Volpe tossed out a call after about thirty seconds and saw Altman table {6-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} for merely a pair of fives. Volpe showed {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs} for top two pair and was able to drag in the pot.
