EPT9 Grand Final: On form Paul Volpe calls time on Mike McDonald, wins €130,500

Paul Volpe is currently one of the world's most on form players, as proved by his €130,500 win here in Monaco. Volpe clocked up his fourth six-figure score of the year by beating Mike 'Timex' McDonald to bring his 2013 live tournament winnings up to $1,566,464.
