Paul Volpe Wins First WSOP Bracelet in Event #13 $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball Championship ($253,524)!
 

Paul Volpe - Champion

It was a quick day of poker here in the Amazon room, as the final seven players returned for Event #13: $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball Championship. After about five hours of play, it was start-of-day chip leader Paul Volpe who came out on top, besting Daniel Negreanu during heads up play and denying KidPoker his seventh World Series of Poker bracelet. Volpe, the only player at the final table without a bracelet, earned his first today as well as $253,524 in first-place prize money.

The first elimination of the day came quickly, as Abe Mosseri fell at the hands of 2012 WSOP $1,500 No-Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball champion Larry Wright. A short-stacked Mosseri three-bet shipped over an open from Volpe. Wright called the all in and Volpe ditched his hand. Both players stood pat and Mosseri rolled over      . It was no good, however, as Wright woke up with a ninety-eight and scored the elimination. Mosseri collected $27,633 for his seventh place finish.

Two orbits later, Volpe opened with a min-raise to 24,000 and John Monnette three-bet shipped all in for his last 116,000. Jason Mercier called from the button and it came back around to Volpe who folded. Both players stood pat and Monnette rolled over a ninety-eight low. Mercier had him beat, though, with a       and just like that Monnette's run had come to an end. He picked up a cash worth $35,549 and exited the tournament in sixth place.

Wright, who has cashed in this event three years in a row, was the next to fall. Wright was the short-stack during five-handed play and could not improve against Volpe during an all in confrontation. For his third consecutive cash in this championship event, Wright pocketed $47,792. Following Wright out of the door was two-time WSOP bracelet winner Brian Rast. On hand #55 of the final table, Rast moved all in from under the gun and found a call from Negreanu in the big blind. Negreanu pulled one card and Rast stood pat with a queen-nine. Negreanu was drawing to a ten-six and made it when he pulled a  . Rast was eliminated from play and took home $67,264.

Mercier began three-handed play as the chip leader, but some key confrontations with Volpe led to him being the next player to hit the rail. In one particular hand, Volpe made number-three against the two-time bracelet winner to win a solid chunk of chips. Ultimately, Mercier got the last of his chips in against Volpe while both players drew one card. Both held eighty-seven draws with Mercier's being the slightly better draw.

Volpe:     
Mercier:     

Volpe rolled his card over first, showing a   to make his eighty-seven. Unfortunately for Mercier, he also pulled a   giving him a pair and the second-best hand. Mercier had to settle for a third place finish and $99,313 in prize money.

Volpe began heads up play with a strong lead over Negreanu and KidPoker was never quite able to gain any footing. Volpe never relinquished his chip lead over the 85-hand heads up match. The match finally came to a head when a short-stacked Negreanu called all in for his tournament life of 245,000 after Volpe shipped from the button. Both players drew one card and Volpe made his jack-ten. Negreanu was drawing live with     , but pulled a   to seal his fate as the runner-up finisher. He won $156,674 for his runner-up finish.
