Event 24: $5,000 Omaha Hi-Low Split 8-or-Better

Cassidy Takes Massive One From Kelly


We just saw the biggest pot of the day so far between Joe Cassidy and Dan Kelly. Cassidy is now in second chips while Kelly is in big trouble as he's down to just five big bets.

The action started off with a raise to 20,000 from Cassidy who was in the hijack. Kelly defended his big blind and the flop came down {A-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}. Kelly checked to Cassidy who bet 10,000 after he got check-raised right away. Cassidy called.

The turn was the {J-Hearts} and Kelly bet 20,000. Cassidy wanted to play for more and bumped it up to 40,000 after which Kelly put in another raise to 60,000 right away. Cassidy called.

On the river we saw the {9-Diamonds} and Kelly fired out 20,000 once more. There was no low possibility and Cassidy probably surprised many when he put in a raise to 40,000. Kelly didn't move a muscle and gave it some thought before finally folded for one extra bet in this massive pot. Every bet is crucial and Kelly saved this one for a comeback he needs to make in order to keep his second WSOP bracelet dreams alive.
