Event #23: $3,000 6-Handed Limit Hold’em at the World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2022 finally ended with Jeremy Ausmus clinching his fourth WSOP bracelet and a top prize of $142,147. This win also made Ausmus eligible for the WSOP Poker Hall of Fame and he is now a part of an exclusive group of 64 other players to have four WSOP bracelets.
Ausmus, who underwent major swings during the final table (FT) told PokerNews, “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.” (sic)
The event saw a total of 213 entries battling it out for the total prize pool of $568,710. Day two ended when the field was down to the final nine players. These nine returned on Day 3 to play for the coveted title.
The FT of six was set when Kevin Erickson and Shaun Deeb exited. The first casualty on the final table was former WSOP bracelet winner Andrew Kelsall, who was knocked out at the sixth spot with $21,170 in his bankroll. Next in line was Mike Lancaster, who was seen walking away at the fifth spot with a pay cheque of $29,185.
Zachary Grech took home $41,191 for his fourth place finish. Gabe Ramos had a payday of $59,486 at the third place as he left the final two for a heads-up clash. Finally, Ausmus knocked out the Day 2 chip leader Micheal Rocco at the runner-up spot to claim his fourth WSOP title. Rocco walked away with the highest five-figure cash prize of $87,854.
