The 2015 WSOP Event #14: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout kicked off around 12 p.m. local time Thursday with 1,000 entries creating 100 10-handed tables, the winners of which would advance to Day 2 Friday guaranteed a min-cash of $5,413.

Play wrapped up just after 1 a.m. Friday morning with the full 100 players advancing, looking to win a second table when play resumes at 1 p.m. Friday and book a spot at the final table. Up top sits a $283,546 first-place prize and a coveted WSOP bracelet.

Among those advancing were three-time WSOP bracelet winner Dominik Nitsche, 2008 WSOP November Niner Dennis Phillips, European Poker Tour Season 8 Grand Final champ Mohsin Charania, and 2014 PokerStars WCOOP Main Event winner Fedor "CrownUpGuy" Holz.

Welcome to the 2015 World Series of Poker!

Today's noon event is Event #14: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout. Last year, Alex Bolotin took the title after topping a field of 948 entries and earning the $259,211 top prize. That win marked Boleti's first gold bracelet of his career, and he'll likely be returning to the field today to defend his title. There is a 2,000-player cap on this event, and each competitor will begin with 7,500 in chips. Day 1 will play until each starting table finds a winner, and then those winners will return for Day 2 tomorrow.
