Jeremy Ausmus 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 10Spade Suit10Heart Suit4Heart Suit 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 AHeart SuitQHeart Suit10Diamond Suit8Heart Suit. Helppi also flopped trip tens with an ace kicker holding the ASpade Suit10Club Suit7Heart Suit2Diamond Suit, meaning that for the time being they were currently tied. The turn brought the 8Club Suit, 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.
