Kopp Calls, Collects

Shamus

With the board showing {5-Spades}{A-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{K-Spades}, Billy Kopp checked from the small blind, his opponent in the cutoff bet, and Kopp called. The pot by then had reached about 30,000.

The river brought the {2-Clubs}. Kopp sat for about a minute, then checked, and his opponent quickly bet 20,000. Kopp thought another half-minute, then made the call.

His opponent tossed his hand ahead of himself face up -- {Q-Spades}{4-Clubs}. Kopp showed {A-Clubs}{J-Hearts} for aces, and took the pot. "I guess 30 would have done it?" asked Kopp's opponent, but the 12th-place finisher in the 2009 Main Event didn't answer one way or the other.

Kopp is stacking up 213,000 as he readies for the dinner break.
