2017 WSOP: $10K Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo Championship won by Bryce Yockey

Tags:
Posted on Friday, June 30, 2017 by "T".

This is the very first time that Bryce Yockey wins a WSOP bracelet in what is also the very first $10K PLO Hi-Lo tournament in the history of the WSOP. Yockey was pretty confident he can bag this event as he booked as many side bets as he can, preparing for a game he once grinded a lot on but has barely played in the past years.

The event's final day had 15 players who returned, but after some eliminations an official table of eight remained. There were some close-call moments, but in the end Yockey got it, emerging on top in a field of 207 for his first bracelet and a payday worth $511,147.

He happily said, "I just f****** came through. It feels really good. It's different than winning a $1,500 tournament. There's a lot of tough pros to get through. It felt good to get here."

For someone who did not play much PLO8 in the past, Yockey's results were simply astonishing. The Californian's recent four final table runs at the WSOP include two in PLO8. He placed third in $5K PLO8 in 2011 for $180,180 and fifth in $1,500 PLO8 in 2015 for $50,171.

Yockey also got a nice start at the final table run in the Millionaire Maker of this year's WSOP, cashing out in fifth place for $317,544. He said, "I just came in brimming with confidence. I feel like half of poker is your mindset anyways."

Final table results:

1 Bryce Yockey United States $511,147
2 Jeremy Joseph United States $315,911
3 Josh Arieh United States $216,077
4 Chris Ferguson United States $150,929
5 Quentin Krueger Canada $107,709
6 Chris Roth United States $78,569
7 Ray Henson United States $58,612
8 Kate Hoang United States $44,738

Many congratulations to Bryce Yockey on winning his first bracelet and the first prize of $511,147. I find it quite remarkable that he won this, after openly admitting that he hasn't played this variation of the game for years.

Gratz to the winner for their bracelet and a winning over 500k $! But i´m surprised, that this was the first 10k PLO Hi-Lo in the history of the WSOP. And side bets are normally in this time i think, ok why not...

well i kinda enjoy this game of omaha hi/lo especially when there are a few donks at the table who have no idea how the game should be played and for example only go for a high hand, probably they think they play omaha here and not omaha hi/lo. half a million nice cash to pocket.

Maybe that's what helped him in the end ... as it seems to me he used to play this game quite often and then there was a big break ... but the knowledge that he had left and maybe he looked at the game with a fresh look and it was this that led to the victory

Always very difficult to win a tournament in plo8.
At this range is even more difficult, with all the professionals in and high stakes.

It is quite some time i see in the winners list chris ferguson.
Either that or i havent noticed him again Smile

I tried to play omaha hilo some time ago on pokerstars and I think this is an interesting game, sometimes i don't read the lo and hi hands very well and maybe make some stupid mistakes but sometimes these mistakes make you win the hand you think you will lose Tongue

I have about the same case ..... the game I like but I do not quite quickly determine the strength of the hand .... because of this, there are different ridiculous mistakes .... therefore I prefer to play the game I know well and understand that I do - it's certainly HOLDEM

It is not hard to understand. You just need to know when to chase and when not to,
since the split pots can be a disaster.
You can be winning every hand, but with split and rake, you just end up losing.
