Jeremy Ausmus strikes gold in WSOPE Event 4 €1,650 Pot-Limit Omaha

Jeremy Ausmus - WSOPE Event 4
Share this

Jeremy Ausmus has been very, very busy since making the 2012 Octo-Nine. He's locked up 11 WSOP cashes and made two final tables — finishing fifth in the WSOP Asia Pacific accumulator event, and eighth in the WSOP National Championship. He also captured third place in the $3,000 mixed max event in Las Vegas.

The third time is the charm — Ausmus' third final table appearance found him winning his first gold bracelet. It took about nine hours and he had to get through Juha Helppi heads up after starting at a two-to-one chip disadvantage, but the gold is on his wrist and he picked up €70,324 for his first-place victory which puts him at nearly $3.6 million in career lifetime earnings.

2013 WSOPE Event #4 Results

1Jeremy AusmusUSA€70,324
2Juha HelppiFinland€43,441
3Jan-Peter JachtmannGermany€31,367
4Jason MercierUSA€23,036
5Martin KozlovAustralia€17,210
6Mike “Luca” SchwartzUSA€13,077

Mike Schwartz was eliminated on Day 3 after moving all in on a flop of {10-Hearts}{9-Spades}{2-Spades}. Ausmus called Schwartz — after being the lead bettor in the hand — with {10-Spades}{9-Hearts}{4-Spades}{3-Clubs}. Schwartz’s {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} was in bad shape and never improved when the turned {5-Hearts} and river {9-Diamonds} put the finishing touches on the hand. Schwartz was gone in sixth place.

Australia’s Martin Kozlov tried, but he was unable to score a second WSOPE bracelet for the team down under. He was all-in on a flop of {4-Clubs}{j-Spades}{3-Hearts} with the {a-Clubs}{8-Spades}{7-Clubs}{5-Spades} against Helppi’s {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{q-Spades}{j-Diamonds}. The {3-Diamonds} hit the turn and the {q-Spades} on the river finished Kozlov off in fifth place.

Jason Mercier had a mega-deal going due to the side bets he made with Phil Ivey. Mercier would pick up €130,000 more than his opponents because of the side bets if he took down first place. The two-time bracelet winner went all-in on a flop of {q-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}, and Helppi called. Mercier turned over the {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{8-Hearts}, Helppi tabled the {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} for a pair of queens and a flush draw. The {k-Diamonds} on the turn put up the flush and left Mercier drawing for an ace or a deuce on the river. The {10-Hearts} on the river ended his run for winning the side bet and the gold bracelet. Mercier was gone in fourth place.

Three-handed play found Ausmus, Helppi, and Jan-Peter Jachtmann trading chips and dancing chip stacks across the green felt until Jachtmann called an all-in bet from Helppi on a flop of {6-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}. Helppi had the {q-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{6-Hearts} for two pair, against Jachtmann’s {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}. The turn produced the {3-Clubs} and the river {5-Diamonds} sent Jachtmann to the cashier in third place.

Helppi started heads-up play with a more than two-to-one chip lead, but after doubling a couple of times Ausmus evened up the chip stacks. It took only a few hands for Ausmus to eliminate Helppi.

The final hand came down with four bets on the {10-Spades}{10-Hearts}{4-Hearts} flop and Helppi was all-in with the {a-Spades}{10-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}. Both players had trip tens with an ace kicker. Ausmus tabled the {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} and had a flush draw as well. The turned {8-Clubs} gave Ausmus a full house. The {3-Diamonds} on the river sealed the deal and Helppi finished as runner-up.

Congratulations to Ausmus for winning his first bracelet!
