Billy Kopp Signs With UltimateBet

Wednesday, 19 August 2009

Just last week we revealed that model, poker pro and sometime-Bluff Europe blogger Liv Boeree had become the newest member of Team UltimateBet. It was a title she did not hold for long – Billy Kopp is now the newest member alongside Liv, Annie Duke and Phil Hellmuth.

Kopp made a noteworthy performance in the 2009 WSOP Main Event – despite going into Day 8 as one of the chip leaders, he ended up busting in 12th. For that deep run he received $896,730. He also finished 8th in Event #15 for $71,115.

During his run, the University of Kentucky student knocked out former world champions Joe Hachem and Peter Eastgate on his way to adding that $900k to his near-$2m career live tournament earnings.

Now, at UltimateBet, you can find him at the tables playing under the screen name "billy_kopp." He is noted for his loose-aggressive style of play, which is a far cry from Hellmuth’s “fold fold fold” plan of attack at the tables.

You can sign up to UltimateBet for a $1,100 deposit bonus and the chance to take on Kopp at the tables.
