Following the loss, Volupicite returned to watch further rounds being played and stood behind the human criminal Han Solo. Solo and Calrissian then both wagered their starships on a round, and after Solo revealed his hand of cards to be straight staves, Volupicite cheered with the rest of the room and clapped the criminal on the shoulder. The alien was then displeased when Calrissian revealed that he had Full Sabacc, meaning he had won the game.
