Jeremy Ausmus Wins 2013 World Series of Poker Europe €1,650 Pot-Limit Omaha Event
Las Vegas Based Poker Pro Wins €70,324 and First WSOP Gold Bracelet After Topping Tough Final Table
2012 November Niner Jeremy Ausmus has won his first World Series of Poker gold bracelet, topping a field of 184 players in the WSOP Europe €1,650 buy-in pot-limit Omaha event to win €70,324 ($95,978 USD) and 336 Card Player Player of the Year points. This was the Las Vegas-based poker pro’s fifth final table of the year and his second title, having won the Venetian Deep Stack Extravaganza II $2,500 main event in April. As a result, Ausmus now sits in 21st place in the overall POY standings with 2,262 points and year-to-date earnings of $446,014.
“It is a huge deal in this industry to have the bracelet. It is all about the bracelet, it is funny. I’m really, really glad to have a bracelet,” Ausmus told WSOP.com after the win. “I feel like I’ve done some things besides just make the [Main Event] final table. Some guys you just never hear from again and I think I’ve left my mark and now even more so.”
Ausmus topped a stacked final table that featured the likes of Jonathan Little (7th – €10,102), two-time PLO bracelet winner Jason Mercier (4th – €23,036), 2012 $10,000 WSOP PLO championship winner Jan-Peter Jachtmann (3rd – €31,367) and World Poker Tour champion Juha Helppi (2nd – €43,441). Helppi started the final day as the chip leader of the remaining six, with Ausmus close behind him. When they got down to heads-up, Helppi held just over a 2-to-1 chip advantage.
Ausmus was able to fight back and take a very slight chip lead when the final hand came down. With a flop of 10104 Ausmus bet 38,000 and Helppi raised to 80,00. Ausmus reraised to 140,000 and Helppi announced a re-pot, prompting a quick call from Ausmus who flipped up the AQ108. Helppi also flopped trip tens with an ace kicker holding the A1072, meaning that for the time being they were currently tied. The turn brought the 8, however, giving Ausmus a full house and leaving Helppi drawing dead. For his runner-up finish the Finnish pro earned €43,441 and 280 POY points.
