Jeremy Ausmus First Bracelet Winner of The 2021 World Series of Poker 04 Oct

The first gold bracelet awarded at the 2021 World Series of Poker went to poker pro Jeremy Ausmus. The 42-year-old Las Vegas resident defeated a field of 260 total entries in the $1,000 buy-in COVID-19 relief no-limit hold’em charity event, earning his second WSOP gold bracelet and the first-place prize of $48,681.
This year’s $1,000 COVID-19 Relief No-Limit Hold’em tournament was added to the World Series of Poker schedule to raise money for “charitable organizations benefiting frontline health workers.” With $100 from each buy-in withheld for charity and 266 total entrants, the event raised $26,600 for the cause.
This tournament was third to kick off on the first day of the WSOP, but with a fast-paced structure, it was the first to come to a conclusion.
“This final table was less than an hour and a half, and last night I registered at 9:00 and played until 3:30, so it was like eight hours to win a tournament,” said Ausmus. “The turbos are a lot of fun. You just get all-in a lot and try to win, and I won most of my all-ins, so.”
