Wow that was a nice last hand with full-house on flop vs trips + 9 outs. I still dream to play my first final table on a main event and if i could choose a game that will be PLO8 because 99.99% of players know to play Hold'em. Or i really don't care what kind of game will be, i want a FT on a MAIN EVENT, i think i'm not the only who wish.

Reaching the paid places for the third time at WSOP with a first prize including a bracelet is awesome. I'm sure we will keep watching Ben Volpe at this event for a long time! As for Shchmelev, it seems he calculated the probabilities of his opponent having a 5 and wasn't affraid as he had a full house. The turn wasn't a figure, which probably reduced Shchmelev's probabilities of thinking Judah could be ahead, so he played well.
