"Oh no," yells Volpe as he fears his tournament life may come to an end. The rail breaks out in laughter and the two friends stand side by side to sweat the run out. The flop brings and both players flop pairs, with Volpe's tournament life drawing thin. The on the turn nearly sealed the deal and Deeb just needed to fade a on the river. The dealer burned the final card and the fell on the river, locking up the victory for Deeb.
