A week ago, poker pro Jeremy Ausmus posted a series of tweets revealing that World Series of Poker (WSOP) had banned Jared Strauss’ account after the former suspected Strauss of cheating to win a WSOP Online bracelet in October 2022. Now, the four-time bracelet winner shared that he has written a poker song.
The five-time WSOP bracelet winner shared a post on Twitter this morning that read, “I wrote a poker song.” He also shared the video of him performing the song titled ‘Hey, Mighty Poker Gods.’

He has also uploaded the song on his YouTube channel with a description that reads, “An offering to the Mighty Poker Gods. They govern all at the poker tables. Without their helping hand, we’d never get dealt aces, flop a set, or make a flush. And when they turn their backs to us, we get drilled with a gunshot.”
In the video, Ausmus is seen performing the song with a guitar in hand. The song is sung on the music of the famous song ‘Hey There Delilah’ by Plain White T’s.
The song with a title like that coming just days after Ausmus announced the ban on Strauss by WSOP, would make one wonder if the song was written as an appreciation for the poker gods after justice was served. However, the lyrics of the song do not suggest anything along those lines.
The song asks the poker gods what it is like to control everything that happens on the poker tables. He further prays for good cards by adding words like ‘angelic queens’ and ‘holy pocket kings’ through his song.
Interestingly, Ausmus goes on to say that he’d sacrifice his firstborn child to the poker gods and sign his soul in blood to them in return for never losing in the game.
In his last week’s thread of tweets, Ausmus had shared that he suspected Strauss had cheated in the $7,777 WSOP online bracelet event held in October 2022, where he finished second. Post that, he received an email from WSOP stating that Strauss’ account had been permanently banned; however, the reason for the same was not disclosed by the officials.
