Copeland's quest for another victory here at Ameristar St. Charles is very much alive.
With the blinds at 20,000/40,000, Travis Barnes opened to 125k from mid position. Action folded around to Jeff Copeland who went all in for 275k. Barnes made the call and the two players flipped their cards. Copeland was in good shape with two black kings. Barnes held the ace-king needed to see an ace to send Copeland home in eighth place. The flop brough the 2h10dQs. The 9s hit the turn and the 6d came on the river. Copeland won the hand and more than doubled up raking a pot of more than 300,000.
