Jackie Glazier Takes Down 2013 WSOPE Ladies ChampionshipMonday, October 14th, 2013 by Ryan
The name Jackie Glazier may be a name that you’ve heard before, and it’s likely because of her success in the poker world. She has had some big scores throughout her career, but her most recent win is one that is going to give her the World Series of Poker gold bracelet that all players strive to get. This may not be the biggest career win that she’s had, but getting that gold bracelet is a win that will get her on the map even more without a doubt. Glazier has had some solid wins, in her career, but this may be the most meaningful. The Australian poker pro is definitely well respected, and when she took her seat at the 2013 World Series of Poker Europe’s €1,000 buy-in Women’s Championship, she absolutely had high expectations. Why wouldn’t she either?
If you look back at some of her past successes, she’s pulled in a second place finish at the 2012 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, and in this years Main Event she was the last woman standing, as she beat a massive field and ended up getting knocked out in 31st place, which was definitely worth a big time pay day. The Women’s Championship here was the first event of the series this year, and it’s also the first time that a Women’s event at the World Series of Poker Europe awarded a gold bracelet. There’s a good chance that it may not happen again though, as only 65 players bought into the event. Glazier in no way had a walk to the final table or to the championship though, as she had some tough competition at the table.
One player who definitely got a lot of attention at the final table of this event was Gaelle Baumann. You probably know Baumann as she was actually the final woman standing back at the 2012 World Series of Poker Main Event in Las Vegas, and she actually pulled in a 10th place finish that year. While Baumann didn’t make it too far in the final table, she was able to pull in a 7th place finish in this event, that ended up being worth a pay day of €3,200.
Glazier’s statement was pretty much exactly what we love to hear in the poker world, as she stated that it was “definitely a dream come true”, and that she has “always aspired to win a World Series bracelet, and to do it here in the first ever Europe Ladies’ Event is a real honor.” The win for Glazier ended up being worth a total of €21,850 to go along with the gold bracelet, and our second place finisher was Maryline Valente, who pulled in €13,500. Moving down from there we saw Laurie Bismuth get third place, Celine Bastian get fourth place, Nathalie Odet finish in fifth place, Sherry Lindsey finish in sixth, and the previously mentioned Baumann in seventh.
Saturday the 11th was the first open bracelet tournament that was on the schedule for the 2013 WSOPE, and it was Day 1A of the €1,000 No Limit Hold’em re-entry event. Day 1B began on Sunday, and this was a three day event, so the winner will be locked in later on today. The rest of the schedule includes a Mixed Max No Limit Hold’em four day event with a €5,000 buy-in on Monday, then a Pot Limit Omaha three day event with a €1,500 buy-in on Tuesday, a No Limit Hold’em three day event with a €2,000 buy-in on Wednesday, then a Mixed Max Pot Limit Omaha three day event with a €3,000 buy-in on Thursday. There will then be a day break leading into the Main Event on Saturday, which is Day 1A to buy-in, and Day 1B is on Sunday. The Main Event features a €10,000 buy-in, and is a seven day event. The final event of the tournament is on Tuesday, and it’s a High Roller No Limit Hold’em event with a €25,000 buy-in.
We’ll keep you updated on the rest of the 2013 World Series of Poker Europe, as there is obviously plenty of action still to be played, and it should feature some big name players and big payouts as well.
