Jeremy Ausmus and Jesse Lonis won gold bracelets
At the moment, 8 bracelets have already been played in the WSOP online series. During this time, 2.4 million USD as prize money was paid, and the number of participants exceeded 3,800. Jeremy Ausmus and Jesse Lonis won gold bracelets, winning the seventh and eighth events, respectively. Ausmus has already won the bracelet for the fifth time, and for Lonis, the victory was the first in his career. It is worth noting that players who are located in Nevada and New Jersey can participate in the online series.
Despite the relatively modest buy-in of the seventh event of the championship (365 USD), there were many star players who wanted to win the bracelet. As a result, the winner was a regular participant of the largest tournaments, the well-known Jeremy Ausmus. The American beat 570 rivals in the fight for the title and earned 51,807 USD.

This is the second bracelet won by Ausmus this year and the fourth in the last two years. Ausmus won his very first trophy back in 2013 in the Omaha pot-limit event for 1,650 USD. Currently, a poker player’s lifetime earnings exceed 12.7 million USD. As mentioned earlier, famous poker players participated in the tournament. In addition to Ausmus, David Oppenheim, Daniel Negreanu, Nick Schulman and others played.
Schulman was close to winning his fourth bracelet, but lost in the decisive battle to Ausmus. Schulman went all-in with a Straight-draw facing two pairs of Ausmus. Schulman could not put together a complete combination either on the turn or on the river, taking 2nd place and receiving 37,792 USD.
Jesse Lonis won the eighth event of the series
American poker player Jesse Lonis won the eighth event of the series, earning 73,370 USD. Interestingly, Lonis and Ausmus fought for the bracelet in one of last year’s WSOP events, and then Jeremy was stronger. This time Lonis did not miss the victory in the event with a buy-in of 1,000 USD, which was attended by 384 players. As a result of this victory, the native of Little Falls, New York, increased his career earnings to more than 1.8 million USD.
