Jeremy Ausmus Wins Event #4 - €1,650 Pot-Limit Omaha! (€70,324)
Jeremy Ausmus started today second in chips but after 199 hands, he has finished with gold on his arm and €70,324 in prize money. Ausmus has had numerous big results in his poker career, the most famous being his 5th place finish in last year's WSOP Main Event.
His victory here makes this his 10th WSOP cash this year and has now cashed in the WSOP, WSOPE and WSOP APAC all in 2013.
Michael Schwartz was the first player eliminated today, with Martin Kozlov following him next before former two-time bracelet winner Jason Mercier lost a pot for about half the chips in play to Juha Helppi and was eliminated in fourth place.
This left Helppi, Ausmus and the winner of the $10,000 PLO event from the 2012 WSOP Jan-Peter Jachtmann as the last three players remaining. Jachtmann was eventually eliminated and Helppi took a dominating lead into the heads-up.
After a long battle Ausmus prevailed thanks to several timely double ups and a cooler of a last hand to win his first bracelet, defeating an incredibly tough final table.
