When we arrived at the table, the dealer was pulling in a couple of bets after a couple of players had folded preflop. The action we gathered was that one player had opened to 3,200, a few others called, then Jackie Glazier three-bet to 11,800 from the small blind. Two of the original callers from the cutoff seat and the button made the call of Glazier's three-bet, and the flop came down . Glazier checked, the cutoff seat fired 25,000, the button folded, and then Glazier raised enough to put the cutoff seat all in. The cutoff seat called it off.
Glazier rolled over top set with the . The cutoff seat said, "You're good," and showed the for top pair.
The turn brought the to give Glazier a full house and leave her opponent drawing draw. The river was the and that was that. Glazier scooped the pot and moved to 182,000 in chips.
Yesterday, we talked about how Dar'Ya Hulyk's was building in the Main Event and had a good shot of becoming poker's next big female competitor. As much as we would love to say the same about Glazier, there's one slight problem, she's already a very well known player in the game.
Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Glazier has nearly $1 million in live tournament earnings, including a big-time finish in last year's $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em event where she took second place. She also cashed in the Main EVent last year, her second time in the money in the event after first cashing in 2010. Glazier was also recently signed to Ivey Poker. She's often regarded as one of the best tournament players in her region, but has been expanding her success to the WSOP very much so in the past two years. With one cash under her belt this year and over 180,000 in chips, Glazier could very well be setting herself up for another major splash here in Las Vegas.
