Paul Hizer outlasted 13,565 entries to take home a bracelet and the $414,490 cash prize.

“It means a lot,” Hizer told WSOP reporters after coming out on top. “Played many tournaments. Had lots of deep runs. But I’ve never actually won a tournament outright. I don’t know if many people know that about me. I’m sure my close friends do. And maybe today was just written in the stars and I was meant to go all the way. I felt really confident, I felt like I had a really good game plan, and I’m just really thankful that it worked out.”

“I’ve applied a lot of my time to playing poker. I’ve made it my profession over the last six years. My parents initially weren’t so pleased. It’s not the career choice they wanted for me. Like always in life, I just trust my gut and I did my best,” said Hizer.

The United Kingdom player had previously won just over $400,000 in live tournament play.
