After thirteen levels, Event #39: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em SHOOTOUT, which saw 908 entrants take their seats at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino, has concluded. Each player needed to win their table in order to advance to the next round and be in with a chance of winning their share of the $1,225,800 prize pool. No doubt all eyes will be on the $236,498 first prize.

There were 100 tables, stretching across two rooms, at the start but by the end of play this had been reduced to just 10. Phil Hellmuth was one of the first to make it through, coming out on top on a table that included Heidi May and Maurice Hawkins. The 14-time bracelet winner will come back for Day 2 to continue his campaign to win his 15th WSOP title. Hellmuth got it in with two pair heads-up and he stayed the favorite all the way to the river.

Other big names that will be back are reigning WSOP Main Event Champion Scott Blumstein, last year's runner-up in this event, Thomas Boivin, Steven Wolansky, Rep Porter, 888poker ambassador and 2014 Main Event Champion Martin Jacobson, Matthew Waxman, Georgios Sotiropoulos, Arkadiy Tsinis, Justin Liberto, and William Kakon.

Some of those who didn't make it through included WSOP Champions Ryan Riess, Qui Nguyen, Joe Cada, Erik Seidel, Joe McKeehen, Brian Yoon, Mark Radoja, Michael Gagliano, Barny Boatman, Humberto Brenes, Annette Obrestad, Niall Farrell, Taylor Paur, 888poker ambassador Chris Moorman, John Racener, Brian Hastings, David Peters, Calvin Anderson, Frank Kassela, Jennifer Tilly and Jeff Madsen.

Day 2 will resume tomorrow, Wednesday, June 20, at noon local time, where those 10 tables will become one, with the winner of each going through to play the final table on Day 3. The players will come back to play the first level of Round 2 which features a small blind of 300, big blind of 600 and a running ante of 100. A 15-minute break is scheduled after every two levels with a 60-minute dinner break after Level 9.

PokerNews will be there from the "Shuffle up and Deal" until the last chips have been bagged for the final day. So make sure to follow all the live updates.

A Cruel Runout Sees Yam Come Out on Top

• Level 14: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante
Edward Yam
Edward Yam

Grant Elmer and Edward Yam have been battling it out for quite some time. There have been ups and downs on both sides and right when the stacks had leveled out, they both found a premium hand and there was no way all the chips weren't going into the middle.

Elmer opened to 4,500 and Yam moved all-in for 34,100, which just had Elmer's 32,000 covered.

Edward Yam {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}
Grant Elmer {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}

The flop brought out {k-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{j-Spades}, which put Elmer well into the lead. The {3-Hearts} turn was no good to Yam but the {q-Spades} river was. It was elation for Yam but huge disappointment for Elmer, with what was a very cruel runout.

Yam is the final player to make it through to Day 2 and he will be taking 66,700 chips with him.

De Laat not the Last

• Level 13: 800-1,600, 200 ante

Bas de Laat shoved from the button and Peter Neff called for his last eleven big blinds.

Peter Neff: {3-Hearts}{3-Clubs}
Bas de Laat: {K-Diamonds}{8-Spades}

The board ran out {8-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{j-Diamonds} to give de Laat the higher pair on the flop and Neff in need of a trey. The turn and the river bricked and he was eliminated letting de Laat go through to Day 2 with 66,300 in chips.

Bednar Through to Day 2

• Level 13: 800-1,600, 200 ante

Jan Bednar limped in on the button. Tony Hoang raised and Bednar shoved. Hoang snap-called.

Tony Hoang: {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}
Jan Bednar: {J-Spades}{j-Diamonds}

The board ran out {Q-Clubs}{K-Spades}{J-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{q-Hearts} to give Bednar a set of jacks on the flop, improving to a full house on the river. Bednar made it through to Day 2 with 65,500.

There are still two tables left right now.

Elmer Hits the River

• Level 13: 800-1,600, 200 ante

Edward Yam would've been hoping it was all over. His opponent Grant Elmer, was down 13,200, which is less than 10 big blinds. After a raise from Yam, Elmer shipped it all-in and Yam couldn't call quick enough.

Edward Yam {a-Spades}{k-Spades}
Grant Elmer {a-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}

The flop was {a-Hearts}{4-Spades}{5-Spades}, which was looked very much in Yam's favour. The {6-Clubs} turn brought out an open-ended for Elmer and the {8-Diamonds} river won him the pot.
