The 2018 WSOP's first Championship event has concluded, and the victor is American poker pro Paul Volpe, who claimed his third bracelet after dominating Event #9: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship for $417,921.

Volpe bested three-time WSOP bracelet winner Eli Elezra in a heads-up match to add his third bracelet win in this event. Even though the two finalists have almost the same amount of chips going in to their heads-up battle, the 37-year-old Volpe swiftly pulled away, saying, "I just ran like, really, really good, I think a lot of people with the same cards as me would have won the tournament."

Elezra said after his runner-up finish in the event, "He got it fair and square, he ran like god."

Volpe plans to participate in other WSOP events, saying, "It feels great; I am excited. Hopefully I'm I gonna win another one." He's planning to "Play more tournaments, more $10ks; I will probably play a decent amount more."

It's normal that you feel great when you win 1st place and a very good amount of money. Any player feels good when doing so except for those who have some medical problems or other problems in real life. Congratulations for Paul Volpe for this victory in this beautiful tournament.

Yes like Calicul say it is normal when you play first event with 10 thousands buyin and win it you feel good, probably all people in his situation too say something like this. I remember eli elezra from YouTube high stakes games

well this is a nice tournament to take part in, ohama hi-lo 8 or better, I actually find this game quite interesting and one requiring constant attention to details. eli elezra, brings back the memories of full tilt pre black Friday, high stakes games with phil ivey, Patrick Antonius, durrr and gus hansen

Omaha hi/lo is one of my favorite cash game when I have a rackback account and is on an active bonus because you get in pots with lots of players in and pay high rakes but you must make sure you will win the whole or split pots otherwise you will not be profitable...

A very nice prize for the first position, by playing omaha hi lo.
And the buy in, you can say it is a normal one for WSOP.
The final table was dominated with players from USA.
Only two of nine were from other countries. Smile

Congratulations to Paul Volpe, who won the $10K buy-in tournament. I guess I've played Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better a couple of times at PokerStars or partypoker. I didn't like it. I never fully understood the rules of the game.
