The final day of Event #23: $3,000 6-Handed Limit Hold’em at the 2022 World Series of Poker is over and Jeremy Ausmus finished first to take home the top prize of $142,147 and his fourth gold bracelet. He also joined an exclusive group of only 64 others who have four WSOP bracelets and he is now eligible for the WSOP Poker Hall of Fame.
This event started with 213 total entries for a total prize pool of $568,710, and there were just nine remaining on Day 3 to battle it out for the championship.
Ausmus was second in chips to start the day and had a strong stack throughout the day but the final table was volatile and there was a lot of back and forth with chips. There were a few moments where Ausmus was short-stacked and even all in before he rose back up to beat the Day 2 chip leader, Michael Rocco and win the event.
When talking about the big swings he experienced on the final table, Ausmus said, “It’s just kind of the nature of limit, well poker in general but limit especially is very aggressive with a lot of three-betting and raising flops and raising turns- it’s very volatile and frustrating at times. But then I just ran good against Rocco, who plays heads-up lots, and the win feels good.”
