Las Vegas resident Jeremy Ausmus earned his first live poker cash in January 2008. Since then, he's racked up more than $4.25 million in live event winnings, including 28 World Series of Poker cashes.

Of those 28, Ausmus' big breakout performance came in the 2012 WSOP Main Event when he reached the final table and took fifth for over $2.155 million. In 2013, Ausmus traveled to WSOP Europe and won the €1,650 Pot-Limit Omaha event for his first gold bracelet and €70,324. Then last summer, he nearly won a second bracelet when he took second in the $10,000 Six-Handed No-Limit Hold'em event for $414,104.

In 2013, Ausmus opened up to PokerNews about his poker career and family life. He even gave his top tips for poker-playing parents and how to lead a positive, balanced lifestyle while building a career in the game. You can read more in Finding Balance: Poker and Family Life with Jeremy Ausmus.
