David Singontiko Wins WSOP $1,500 PLO Hi-Lo

Share this

In the second hand of heads-up play, David Singontiko and Michael Yee got all the chips in preflop when Yee had only 325,000 left.

The board came {J-Spades}{7-Clubs}{8-Spades}{6-Hearts}{10-Hearts}.

Singontiko held the {A-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} and Yee had {K-Spades}{3-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}. Singontiko's pair of eights and A-5 low scooped the pot to send Michael Yee home with $165,346 for his 2nd place finish.

The Pot Limit Omaha High-Low Split brought 946 entries to fight it out for a gold bracelet and 1st place prize of $268,235.  The event - #51 - had a total prize pool of $1,277,100 and paid 90 players.

The story has been told that David Singontiko worked for several months for his father's mortgage company - at the rate of $10 an hour - to save up enough money to play this one event.  As amazing as it seems, this is his first WSOP event, and the money he saved to get to it must've had a little magic sprinkled on it.  He turned the $1,500 investment into a cool $268,235 in three days.

When the {10-Hearts} hit the river, David Singontiko's rail went into full blown insanity mode and he fell to the floor when the realization hit that he has just won a bracelet and his first ever WSOP event.  Congratulations David!

The final nine payouts:

David Singontiko 
Michael Yee 
Jeffrey Gibralter 
Igor Sharaskin
Thomas Scarber
Marco Oliveira
Cliff Kettinger
Robert Campbell
John Reiss
