Paul VolpeAnother World Series of Poker $10K championship played to a conclusion at the Rio in Las Vegas.  With a who's who of poker final table the event proved to be a crowd pleaser.  When winner, Paul Volpe, faced the ever popular KidPoker, Daniel Negreanu, the fans settled in for what would prove to be a play lesson in tournament poker.
