Local Billy Kopp is now in 7th place at the dinner break of Day 8 of the WSOP main event. With only 14 players left, Kopp only needs 5 more people to be eliminated in front of him to make the final table of 9. Kopp currently has $13.5 million in chips and trails leader Eric Buchman by more than twice that amount as Buchman currently has a stack of over $28.5 million. The last player to exit the WSOP was Nick Maimone who was eliminated in 15th Place, good enough for $633,022!
