Jeremy Ausmus, a 43-year-old professional poker player, entered the 2021 World Series of Poker with just one bracelet under his belt. However, in the middle of the 2023 WSOP, Ausmus has ascended to the prestigious group of players with six or more bracelets. In the early hours of June 21, Ausmus emerged as the victor in the 2023 WSOP Online $3,200 no-limit hold’em high roller event, surpassing a field of 321 participants to claim $360,036 in prize money and secure his sixth title at the series.
Ausmus now joins the exclusive ranks of the 19 players who have accumulated such a remarkable number of titles throughout the history of the series. Just recently, Shaun Deeb became the 18th player to achieve this feat by winning the $1,500 eight-game mix event during the summer.
Residing in Las Vegas, Ausmus previously reached the final table of the WSOP main event in 2012, finishing in fifth place and earning over $2.1 million. The following year, he clinched his first bracelet by conquering a €1,650 pot-limit Omaha event at the 2013 WSOP Europe series.
Ausmus began his impressive streak at the series in 2021, when he won two bracelets during the summer. He started with a victory in a $1,000 charity event and followed it up by triumphing in the $50,000 pot-limit Omaha high roller, pocketing nearly $1.2 million.
In 2022, Ausmus secured two more WSOP titles, emerging as the champion in a $3,000 limit hold’em six-max event and a $365 buy-in no-limit hold’em online event, elevating his bracelet count to five.
The aforementioned high roller event, where Ausmus claimed his sixth bracelet, witnessed an intense competition lasting over 13 hours to determine the ultimate winner from a field of 321 participants. The top 54 finishers received a payout, and notable players who made deep runs included Jason Koon, a bracelet winner and seven-time Triton Poker champion (14th place), Boris Kolev, a bracelet winner (13th place), Arkadiy Tsinis, a bracelet winner (11th place), Tom Marchese (9th place), Koray Aldemir, the 2021 WSOP main event champion (6th place), Chance Kornuth, a three-time bracelet winner (4th place), and Christopher Castiglia, a bracelet winner (2nd place).
In the final hand, Castiglia went all-in with 10-7 suited from the button, holding roughly nine big blinds. Ausmus swiftly called with pocket kings and maintained his advantage until the river, completing a set of kings to claim the pot and the championship. Castiglia, who had previously won an online bracelet in a $500 buy-in turbo event, earned $224,632 as the runner-up.
With this recent victory, Ausmus has amassed a total of over $16.3 million in recorded earnings, with more than $7.3 million stemming from cashes in bracelet events.
