Eli Elezra limped in and Paul Volpe raised, Elezra called. The flop fell {Q-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{9-Clubs} and Volpe bet, Elezra moved all in and Volpe quickly called.

Eli Elezra: {K-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{5-Spades}
Paul Volpe: {A-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{8-Hearts}{3-Hearts}

Volpe had flopped the bottom end of the straight while Elezra had a gutshot. "Alright, give me a ten," Elezra said and joked "he got it fair and square, he ran like god."

The {Q-Clubs} turn and {3-Diamonds} river were both blanks and Elezra was denied his fourth WSOP bracelet and has to settle for a payday of $258,297, while Volpe earned his third career bracelet.

A recap of today's action is to follow.
