It took less than three hours of final table play to determine the winner of the World Series of Poker $1,500 pot-limit hold’em event. In the end, it was 37-year-old Gregory Kolo who came out on top of a field of 557 players, earning the lion’s share of a $751,950 prize pool.

Kolo, who recorded his first career WSOP cash with this win, earned $169,225. His previous best tournament result was a third-place showing in a WSOP Circuit event in Cincinnati last year for $100,899.

Although he failed to make the third day, former November Nine member Phil Collins made the final table, busting in ninth place. Other notables who made deep runs included Jake Tool (13th), Phil Ivey (22nd), Darryll Fish (32nd), David Peters (33rd), Ryan Riess (36th), Keven Stammen (37th) and Joseph Cheong (40th).

Here is a look at the final table results.
