888Poker sponsors Glazier

Team 888Poker has added to its Australian talent by signing up ‘last woman standing’ from this year’s WSOP main event.

Tuesday 30th July 2013

Online poker site 888Poker has unveiled Australian player and the ‘last woman standing’ at this year’s World Series Of Poker (WSOP) main event, Jackie Glazier, as the latest member of its Team 888Poker squad sponsored professionals.

Melbourne native Glazier, who finished second in a WSOP $3,000 buy-in no-limit hold‘em event last year to win nearly half a million dollars, was also the final Australian player in the 2013 edition of the Las Vegas main event and eventually finished in 31st spot for $229,281.

“I am so excited to be joining Team 888Poker,” said Glazier.

“I look forward to heaps of fun playing poker all around the world with such a great group of people.”

Glazier has also racked up some significant finishes in the Australia and New Zealand Poker Tour (ANZPT) including March’s win of the $500 buy-in pot-limit Omaha event for $12,801 and a 2010 triumph in a $1,100 buy-in no-limit hold‘em six-maximum game to pocket $36,390.

She will now sit alongside former Australian cricketer Shane Warne as a member of Team 888Poker, which also includes Sam Holden and Charlotte Jackson, while her first scheduled tournament is set to be the WSOP Europe from Paris in October where she will compete in the €10,450 buy-in main event.

“Jackie Glazier is a great representation of women in poker and a big win for our team,” said Inbal Lavi from 888Poker.

“We look forward to her joining our Team 888Poker around the world.”
