Mike Wattel and Dan Kelly were both very short and just got all their chips into the middle against Joe Cassidy. Wattel started off by raising to 24,000 under the gun and Kelly, who was to his direct left, made it 36,000 right away. Cassidy was on the button and put in a four-bet making it 48,000 to go.

Both blinds folded and Wattel moved all in for 56,000 after which Kelly called all in for a total of 52,000.

Mike Wattel{A-Spades}{Q-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{6-Spades}
Dan Kelly{A-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{7-Hearts}

The board ran out {K-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{3-Spades}, and with just a pair of kings Cassidy made sure we got down to just ten players.

"Everything okay Joe," Phil Ivey sarcastically asked Cassidy who was stacking his chips after this double knock out.

Ivey reenacted how Cassidy casually put in the extra chips to call both all ins and Cassidy said, "Is that how I did it?"

"Pretty much," Ivey said laughing as all players got handed racks. We are moving to the final table!
