Event #6: €1,650 Six-Handed Pot-Limit Omaha

Volper Hyper Active, Monnette Doubles


Nikolay Volper has players nearly every hand in the last 20 minutes, but he didn't win every one. John Monnette just raised under the gun to 4,200 after which Raul Paez three-bet to 11,500 from the button.

Volper called from the big blind, and Monnette also committed the extra chips with just 4,400 left behind. The flop came down {J-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{9-Diamonds} and Volper immediately bet pot, 35,100. Monnette called all in and Paez folded.

Monnette showed {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{2-Hearts} and beat Volper who tabled {Q-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{5-Clubs}{2-Spades}. The dealer scooped up the cards before we could write up the turn and river, but one thing was for certain, Monnette had doubled up.

In the following hands it was Volper who kept raising and betting. He picked up many small pots and is back at the top.
