Pennsylvania born Paul Volpe increased his lead in the GPI 2015 WSOP Player of the Year race over the weekend with his second runner-up finish of the series.
Having already lost heads up to Keith Lehr in Event #10: $10,000 Heads Up No-Limit Hold’em Championship, Volpe once again fell short of claiming his second WSOP bracelet when he faced Shawn Deeb in Event #15: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold’em Championship.
Volpe currently has a 250 point lead over second place Barry Hutter who won Event #14: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em Shootout.
If Volpe continues his strong run, he could be the first ever player to win Player of the Year without winning a bracelet.
