Ausmus Continues Hot Start With a Knockout
Jeremy Ausmus had already been off to a hot start to his Main Event before scoring this knockout.
After there was a raise to 1,500, Ausmus put in a reraise to 7,500 from early position. The late position player moved all in for his remaining 15,000. Action folded back around to Ausmus, who made the snap-call.
Ausmus had his opponent dominated, and the runout was a safe one. Ausmus scooped the pot while his opponent headed for the rail, seemingly in disbelief to have had his tournament run come to an end so soon.
"You ruined him with that flush earlier," a player from across the table said to Ausmus.
"I need to do this on Day 4 or 5, not Day 1," Ausmus commented.
Nevertheless, Ausmus has quickly grown one of the biggest stacks in today's field as he hopes to make a run at Poker's most sought-after bracelet.
