WSOP 2013 Main Event: Last Woman Standing Jackie Glazier Exits In 31st ($229,281)July 15, 2013 2:48 pm
Day 6 of the 2013 WSOP Main Event saw 68 players from the original starting field of 6,352 return to the Rio, all aiming on moving a step closer to becoming one of this year’s celebrated November Nine.
From that overall total 298 were women, representing 4.7% of the field, but by the start of Day 6 just six women still remained in contention, including Australia’s Jackie Glazier, Annette Obrestad, Beverly Lange, Kima Kimura, Estelle Denis, and Kristy Gazes. At the end of the day, however, all the ladies had been sent to the rail, the last of which was Jackie Glazier in 31st ($229,281), thus earning for herself the title of ‘Last Woman Standing’ at the 2013 WSOP Main Event.
At the beginning of play, when asked about what it would mean to outlast her female opponents, Jackie Glazier replied: “I don’t focus on last woman standing myself. But I do get that there is a focus around it because there are so few women that play poker, but at the end of the day it would be great to see more than one female make the final table. I think we’re owed one from last year.”
Glazier’s comment was a reference to Gaelle Baumann and Elisabeth Hille who narrowly missed out on a final table apperance at the 2012 Main Event after finishing in 10th and 11th place respectively. Unfortunately the Aussie’s wish was not to be and after becoming short-stacked, Glazier (A-Q) opted to three-bet shove for 1.9 million over the top of an initial raise of 200k by Sergio Castellucio. The Italian then made the call with pocket tens, and after lady luck failed to help Glazier on a 9-9-9-5-K board, the heart-broken Aussie found herself on the rail to a melee of sympathetic applause by the railing fans.
Following her departure, Barbara Enright still remains the only woman to have ever made a Main Event final table having finished 5th ($114,180) in 1995. Nevertheless, congratulations go out to Australia’s Jackie Glazier for her impressive run at this year’s Main Event, and for securing her biggest ever tournament score since 2012, when she finished runner-up in the WSOP $3k No Limit Hold’em event for $458,996. Jackie Glazier has now earned $1,188,451 playing tournament since her first cash in 2008.
