Red-Hot Gorodetsky Sends Volpe to the Rail

Paul Volpe

We saw Paul Volpe collecting his things and exiting the tournament area. A quick check with his former table confirmed that he'd just been eliminated at the hands of Robert Gorodetsky, who is sitting with a mountain of chips.

According to Gorodetsky, Volpe had shoved for his last 25,000 of so holding {q-}{10-} and he called with {a-}{10-}. The board ran out clean and Volpe hit the rail.

Gorodetsky then explained "the big one," which he had won a short time earlier. As he told it, he held pocket tens when he and another player, who held {a-}{k-}, saw a flop of {q-}{10-}{5-}. His opponent bet, Gorodetsky called, and a {J-} peeled off on the turn.

His opponent bet 45,000 holding Broadway, Gorodetsky called, and a second {Q-} paired the board on the river. The player with the straight moved all in for a good chunk of change, and Gorodetsky, who barely had him covered, snap-called with tens full of queens.
