Main Event Finalist Jeremy Ausmus wins 2013 WSOPE Event #4

A little over a year ago, Jeremy Ausmus earned international poker fame for making the prestigious 2012 WSOP Main Event final table. He turned in a good performance here too, as he finished in fifth place and collected a $2,155,313 payout.

But Ausmus certainly hasn't faded into the backdrop after the 2012 ME. He proved this by winning the 2013 WSOP Europe Event #4 €1,650 Pot-Limit Omaha tournament. This victory gives the Colorado native his first WSOP gold bracelet and adds €70,324 ($95,054) to his career winnings. Now, let's take a closer look at Ausmus' win and discuss some of the outstanding players whom he outlasted to take down Event #4. A Difficult Road

184 players bought into this €1,650 tourney, which created a €270,480 ($365,598) prize pool. And while the €270k prize pool certainly isn't going to break any records, the fact that it was a PLO event attracted a very elite field. Quite a few notable players cashed and fell just short of the final table, including Max Pescatori (21st, €2,997), Fabrice Soulier (17th, €3,532), Mohsin Charania (14th, €4,225), Tommy Vedes (13th, €4,225) and Dan Kelly (11th, €5,131).

The road to the gold bracelet didn't get any easier on the final table since Jonathan Little (7th, €10,102), Jason Mercier (4th, €23,036) and Jan-Peter Jachtmann (3rd, €31,367) all made strong runs in this tournament.

As if Ausmus hadn't already faced tough enough competition, he had to play heads-up against Juha Helppi, who sits second on Finland's all-time winnings list with $5,010,275. What's interesting is that Helppi actually entered the heads-up match with a 2:1 chip advantage. However, a determined Ausmus was able to overcome this hurdle and grab his first-ever gold bracelet.

More than a One-Hit Wonder

There is a long list of poker players who've made the WSOP Main Event final table, only to rarely (if ever) be heard from again. Over the past year-plus, Jeremy Ausmus has definitely shown that he's not going to be one of these players.

Since his $2.15 million windfall at the 2012 WSOP ME, Ausmus has won a WPT Five Diamond side event ($78,572), finished 12th in the 2013 LA Poker Classic ($70,970), won the Deep Stack Extravaganza II Main Event ($121,853), finished 3rd in the 2013 WSOP $3k Limit Hold'em Mixed Max event ($132,748), taken 3rd at the 2013 WSOP $111k One Drop ($308,622) and now won a WSOP Europe event. Thanks to these strong finishes and others, he has collected over $3.6 million in poker tournaments.

Out of all these accomplishments, what Ausmus really seems to value most is the bracelet. "It is a huge deal in this industry to have the bracelet," he said, following his WSOPE victory. "It is all about the bracelet, it is funny. I'm really, really glad to have a bracelet. 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."
