Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Kopp Cut Down


Billy Kopp, the 12th place finisher in the 2009 Main Event, has just been eliminated. We missed the action, but Kopp and his opponent got all the money in preflop, with Kopp holding {a-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} and his opponent having {j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}. The flop left Kopp drawing virtually dead, coming {j-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}. Kopp would need runner runner straight to take the pot, but he wouldn't get it, as the turn came the {6-Hearts} and the river brought the {3-Clubs}. Kopp left rather quickly, and some of the players at the table thought he had more chips. The floor came over to count it down, and Kopp had to wait around to see if he was still alive. After the count, it was determined he was the shorter stack, and Kopp headed towards the rail for a second time, ending his event.
