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

Cassidy Firmly in Second

Joe Cassidy

Joe Cassidy's been having a monster day so far as he's now up to around 700,000 in chips. He just beat Dan Kelly out of another pot knocking the youngster down to just 55,000 chips. Kelly managed to more then double up right afterwards and is now sitting on 170,000 chips.

From the cutoff Kelly raised it up to 20,000 and Phil Ivey three-bet from the small blind. Cassidy called from the big and Kelly also put in the extra chips.

The flop came down {A-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts} and Cassidy took the betting lead after Ivey had checked. Kelly and Ivey called.

The turn was the {10-Clubs} and now Ivey bet out 20,000 after which Cassidy raised. Kelly called and Ivey decided to lay it down. The river was the {A-Clubs} and Cassidy put in another 20,000 getting Kelly to fold. He was left very short, but as we said he managed to double up right afterwards and win some more chips.
