WPT LA Poker Classic: Paul Defeated Paul Heads up

Tags: paul klann, paul volpe, world poker tour, wpt la poker classic.
Posted on Friday, March 01, 2013 by "T".

The World Poker Tour L.A. Poker Classic came to an end just a few hours ago. Paul "Paulgees81" Volpe, a well-known online pro, brought the largest stack to the final table and  Paul Klann was ranked second (about 800,000 less chips than Volpe) when the final table kicked off.

The two Paul's made it to heads up after several hours of play (Volpe 10,225,000 and Klann 5,275,000). Even though Volpe had about a 2-1 chip lead and was the more experienced of the two, Klann managed to overtake the chip-lead several times. The two played beyond midnight (local time) before putting their tournament lives at risk. Now you might think that it was a classic AA vs KK pre-flop all in situation, but that was not the case...

Klann min-raised to 600k, Volpe moved al in for about 8 million. Klann called with KClub10Diamond. Volpe showed JHeart9Heart, and Klann needed to win the hand to stay in the game.

The flop came down 4Heart3Spade2Club and Klann remained out in front. The QHeart on the turn gave Volpe a few more outs, but still Klann was 65.91% favourite to take down the pot. The dealer burnt a card and revealed the final card: the 6Diamond.Klann took home a pot of about 16,000,000 with king-high and Volpe was left with less than a million chips. 

On the final hand Volpe moved all in for 550k and Klann called.

Klann: QHeart5Heart
Volpe: 10Heart9Spade

The board ran out JHeart8Club4Diamond2HeartASpade and Klann won the pot with queen high. Volpe received  $651,170 for his second place finish. Klann received $1,004,090, a WPT Champions Trophy and a Remington trophy from the Commerce Casino + a $25,500 seat into the season-ending WPT World Championship.

Final Table Results:

1. Paul Klann - $1,004,090
2. Paul Volpe - $651,170
3. Jesse Yaginuma - $429,810
4. Danny Fuhs - $316,650
5. David Fong - $236,250
6. Toby Lewis - $193,560

Paul versus Paul, Paul won. Volpe may have regreted a bit for not having made na agreement when they got to the final heads up, but with na advantage of 2 to 1 like he had at that time, i wouldn’t also think about agreements. The truth is things turned upside down for him, like it can always happen. The thrill wouldn’t be the same if an agreement has been made between them. But the prize money is a big difference.

It took a total of 35 levels, but this year's WPT L.A. Poker Classic finally came to a conclusion
After welcoming 517 players to the Commerce Casino, the organisers eventually handed Paul Klann the winner's trophy ( and 1 million dollars) after a tough final table.

The final table action was great, really interesting how the big pot was payed between two Paul's lol

Not sure what the US rule is but i think they need to pay a lot of taxes from that wn especially when you consider that it was not played in Nevada.

In Portugal, big prizes (don’t know what value is already considered big) won from lotteries are taxed with 20%, directly to the account of the government. But I don’t know how it works in what concerns with casino gaming.
