Jeremy Ausmus denies Phil Hellmuth and Daniel Negreanu another WSOP Bracelet
It was one of the most exciting WSOP Final Tables as both Daniel Negreanu and Phil Hellmuth were among the last three remaining players battling Jeremy Ausmus.
Phil Hellmuth is breaking all records at the 2021 WSOP. By reaching this final table the Poker Brat set a new Record for the most WSOP Single Series Final Tables with a whopping 7 FT appearances. On top of that, Hellmuth was gunning for a record 17th Bracelet.
Daniel Negreanu was eager on winning his first bracelet of the 2021 World Series of Poker and played with a lot of heart. You could feel how much DNegs wanted the bracelet, but it wasn’t meant to be as he finished third for $519,764.
One on one Phil Hellmuth faced Jeremy Ausmus, who already won a WSOP bracelet as well and had a slight chip lead.
Heads-up play only lasted a few hands, when all the chips went in on a flop, where Phil had three pair and Ausmus flopped the straight.
It held up and Jeremy Ausmus topped a world-class 85-entry field in Event #84: $50,000 Pot-Limit Omaha High Roller for a massive $1,188,918 score and his second WSOP bracelet of the series.
“It feels really good. My first bracelet was in Europe outside of Paris, so until this year I had never won a bracelet here at the Rio. I’ve had a lot of deep runs, so it’s cool to take a couple down. As long as the WSOP has existed as far as I’ve been a part of it it’s been here. It’ll be interesting to say goodbye to this place.”

Mikita Badziakouski Wins First WSOP Bracelet in Event #85: $50,000 High Roller for $1,462,043
113 entries created a massive $5,409,875 prize pool in 2021 WSOP Event #85: $50,000 High Roller with many big names still left on the final day.
Ole Schemion, Elio Fox and Shaun Deeb made the money bust busted just shy of the final table.
Nevertheless, there were still many poker legends left among the finalists with Joao “Naza113” Vieira, Ali Imsirovic, Stephen Chidwick, GGPoker ambassadors Jason Koon and Daniel Negreanu and Mikita Badziakouski.
The latter had almost $30,000,000 in live winnings, but no WSOP bracelet yet, but this was about to change.
Mikita prevailed on this very tough final table and defeated Ren Lin heads-up to win his first bracelet together with a whopping $1,462,043 first place prize.
Daniel Negreanu finishes 3rd again, cashes for $1,200,000 within 2 days
Daniel Negreanu, who struggled during the entire 2021 WSOP, is finishing the series strong by making it again to the final three players.
DNegs hasn’t won his desired 7th bracelet, but cashed within two days for almost $1,200,000, putting him well up for the series.
Negreanu has one more chance to win a bracelet in Event #87: $100,000 High Roller No-Limit Hold’em, where he sits in 25 of 28 players left, with Fedor Holz having the chip lead.
