Craig Mckinnon just knocked out two tough competitors in back-to-back Razz hands. Here's a look at the first.
Craig Mckinnon: / /
George Rechnitzer: / /
We picked up action on fourth when Rechnitzer bet and Mckinnon called. Rechnitzer bet again on fifth, and then hesitantly called off his last 5,000 when Mckinnon raised. Rechnitzer showed that he had paired his three and woud need some help. The on sixth didn't do it as it double paired him, but he was drawing live on seventh as Mckinnon only made a 10-8-4-3-A low. Rechnitzer squeezed out his last card to reveal a , giving him a losing J-10-7-4-3 low. Rechnitzer exited in 18th place for $10,304.
In the very next hand, Dan Kelly was felled by Mckinnon. We didn't see the hand unfold but we caught both players' cards (in no specific order) before the dealer pulled them in.
Kelly ended up second best and followed Rechnitzer out the door in 17th place. That marks Kelly's eighth cash of the 2013 WSOP, and while he will remain second on the WSOP Player of the Year Leader Board, he will gain a bit on Daniel Negreanu.
