Johansson, Stojanovic, and Ausmus Latest Bracelet Winners at 2013 WSOP Europe 0001

The 2013 World Series of Poker Europe continues to play out this week at the Casino Barrière d'Enghien-les-Bainswith near Paris, France with three more coveted gold bracelets having been claimed over the last three days. Sweden's Henrik Johansson, France's Darko Stojanovic, and Jeremy Ausmus of the United States all earned their first career WSOP bracelets in recently completed events.

Event #2: €1,100 No-Limit Hold'em Re-Entry

In the €1,100 NLHE Re-Entry event, Henrik Johansson (pictured at right) topped a field of 659 total entries to win the title and €129,700 first prize.

The top 72 finishers divided a €632,640 prize pool in Event #2, with Darren Rabinowitz (19th, €5,453), David "Chino" Rheem (22nd, €4,599), Tuan Le (34th, €2,619), Team PokerStars Pro Barry Greenstein (35th, €2,619), Sam Holden (38th, €2,341), Jeff Madsen (41st, €2,341), Jake Balsiger (47th, €2,113), Scott Clements (50th, €2,113), Jake Schwartz (52nd, €2,113), Jonathan Karamalikis (54th, €2,113), and Chris Klodnicki (62nd, €1,930) among the cashers.

Johansson carried the chip lead to the final table, and while he lost the lead along the way was back on top to start heads-up play versus the Frenchman, Adriano Torre-Grossa.

Those two played nearly two dozen hands before Torre-Grossa committed his stack with {7-Clubs}{6-Spades} on a {9-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{7-Hearts} flop and was called by Johansson who had two pair with {10-Hearts}{9-Spades}.

The turn was the {A-Clubs} and river the {A-Hearts}, and Johansson followed fellow 888 Poker pro and Event #1 winner Jackie Glazier to the 2013 WSOPE winner's circle.

Event #3: €5,300 Mixed Max No-Limit Hold'em

The uniquely formatted tourney attracted 140 entrants with a total prize pool of €672,000. Play began nine-handed, went to six-handed and then four-handed before culminating with a heads-up bracket for the final four.

Those making relatively deep runs into the money included Shannon Shorr (5th, €30,695), Phil Ivey (10th, €14,905), James Dempsey (11th, €14,905), and 2013 November Niners Mark Newhouse (12th, €14,905) and Marc-Etienne McLaughlin (16th, €14,905).

After O'Brien took care of Jason Mann and Stojanovic defeated Noah Schwartz (in just one hand) in the semifinals on Wednesday, O'Brien then carried a better than 3-to-1 chip lead to the final heads-up match. But after doubling up with two pair on just the second hand of play Stojanovic, evened the score.

Eventually Stojanovic pushed out ahead, and on the 53rd hand between the pair Stojanovic shoved on a {4-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{6-Hearts} flop with {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs} while O'Brien called with {A-Hearts}{5-Hearts}. The turn was the {J-Spades} and river the {8-Diamonds}, and Stojanovic won.

Event #4: €1,650 Pot-Limit Omaha

Finally the €1,650 PLO event played to a conclusion on Thursday with 2012 WSOP Main Event fifth-place finisher Jeremy Ausmus breaking through to earn his first bracelet after defeating Juha Helppi heads-up for the win.

A total of 184 entered this one, creating a total prize pool of €270,480. Dan Kelly (11th, €5,131), Tommy Vedes (13th, €4,225), Mohsin Charania (14th, €4,225), Casey Kastle (15th, €4,225), Fabrice Soulier (17th, €3,532), and Max Pescatori (21st, €2,997) were among those making the money.

The tournament actually reached the nine-handed final table before the end of Day 2, then played down to six before resuming play on Thursday.

It would take nine hours including a lengthy heads-up battle for the tourney to be decided, with the final hand seeing Helppi all in on a {10-Spades}{10-Hearts}{4-Hearts} flop with {A-Spades}{10-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} versus Ausmus's {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}.

Both players had trip tens with an ace kicker, but the {8-Clubs} came on the turn to improve Ausmus to a full house. The river was the {3-Diamonds}, and Ausmus took the bracelet.
