Copeland Triples Up

Jeff Copeland loses big pot to Leroi. Triples up to stay alive.

Back in March 2017, Jeff Copeland beat out a field of 969 entries in a $350 here at Ameristar St. Charles for the largest cash of his poker career, a $61k payday. He is hoping to add another win to his resume today. We walked up on the table to see Copeland open shove for over 400,000 on the button. Charles Leroi quickly called from the small blind and Garrett Riley folded from the big blind.

The tale of the tape: Copeland had pocket tens and Leroi had aces. The aces held and Copeland was down to fumes. A few hands later Copeland put his last 75,000 in the middle. Seth Evans and Travis Barnes both made the call. Evans and Barnes checked down the board. Copeland showed pocket queens. Evans mucked and Barnes showed pocket tens. Copeland's queens were good and he raked a pot of over 250,000 chips.

Level - 22

Blinds - 15,000/30,000 - Big Blind Ante 30,000

Players Remaining - 10
