Monday July 4, 2011 : Event 51: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo saw 946 player register on the first day, 134 players return to the tables on the second day of the contest, and by the third day only 10 players still in contention, led by David Sands.
 
Sand suffered a disastrous start, losing his significant chip lead and more than two-thirds of his stack in a tough clash with Jeffery Gibralter. It crippled Sands and although he fought to the end it was too big a disadvantage to overcome and he was the first elimination a little further along in the game.
 
Down to a final table there was plenty of excitement, with the chip stacks going up and down like a roller coaster and some great poker. Keeping a low profile, but methodically building his chip stack, Californian amateur David Singontiko – playing his first live event at a World Series of Poker table – survived the rush of eliminations that followed as the final table was depopulated at a fair clip.
 
By the time the contestants were down to four at level 26, Singontiko had accumulated a solid chip lead, and he used this to oust Jeffrey Gibralter in third place to convene the heads up between himself and Michael Yee.  It lasted only 10 minutes, leaving Singontiko with his first bracelet and $268,235, and Yee with the runner-up's check for $165,346.
