The remaining field will need to play all the way down to the final WPT television table of six. When the field hits the final 36, action will remain six-handed for the rest of the tournament (the final seven will be seated together for the television final table bubble). Tune back for all of the action, brought to you by the WPT Live Updates team from San Jose, California.

Volpe is sure thinking about winning this, after taking second place at the WPT LA (the thrilling final HU Paul vs Paul). If he gets the chance to be on the final HU again, he will play in a different way. But there’s still a lot to play before reaching that level, and some well-known names to put some pressure on the game too, like Esfandiari, just to mention one.
