Bryce Yockey won Event #51: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship for his first bracelet, but he won't be adding a second bracelet to his collection just yet.

Alexey Rybin raised to 300,000 from the button, and Yockey three-bet to 1,000,000 out of the small blind. Rybin quickly called, and the flop came {K-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{9-Hearts}. Yockey moved all in for 1,730,000, and Rybin snap-called.

Bryce Yockey: {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}
Alexey Rybin: {Q-Hearts}{J-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{8-Spades}

Yockey needed a ten or running cards in order to improve, and the {3-Clubs} turn was a start. However, the {4-Spades} river blanked, and Yockey was eliminated in fifth place for $270,242.

Rybin holds a commanding lead with more than 60 percent of the chips in play, and all four remaining players have at least $379,128 guaranteed.
