Sarasota, Florida's Barry Hutter took down the 2015 World Series of Poker Event #14: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout Saturday, earning $283,546 and his first WSOP bracelet.

"It's always good to close one out and this is a pretty good one to win," he said. "I've had a lot of chances to close out some big tournaments and I finally got one, so this will kind of be a landmark in my poker career."

Hutter outlasted a field of 1,000, winning three 10-handed shootout tables to book the win. In Saturday's final he got the best of a tough final table that included original November Niner Dennis Phillips, 2010 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event fourth-place finisher Benjamin Zamani, and 2014 WSOP Ladies No-Limit Hold'em Championship fourth-place finisher Elizabeth Montizanti.

The win marked Hutter's 13th WSOP cash and third of 2015, including a 13th-place finish in the $10,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship and a 14th-place finish in the $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em, vaulting him into 2015 GPI WSOP Player of the Year contention.

Randy Pfeifer was the first player eliminated from the final table when his jacks were cracked by Zamani's turned nut flush. Zamani also busted Grayson Ramage ninth, turning a straight to crack his flopped set of kings. Orson Young and Phillips chopped up the stack of Daniel Sterlitz, ending his run in eighth, and after Anton Smirnov and Young busted, Zamani looked to be running away with things.

Montizanti and Kitty Kuo were the next two out, leaving just men in the final three. After Phillips shoved {K-Clubs}{9-Hearts} into Zamani's {A-Spades}{7-Clubs} and failed to improve, Zamani took an almost 2:1 chip lead into heads-up play with Hutter. Hutter then pulled even with a rivered pair of tens after missing a flopped open-ended straight draw, then took the lead making a straight and getting paid off with a massive river bet.

Before long, Zamani pushed all-in with the {9-Spades}{10-Clubs} over a Hutter raise. Hutter called with the {A-Clubs}{6-Clubs}, faded all trouble, made an ace on the river, and won the bracelet.
