Jackie Glazier Becomes Partypoker Brand AmbassadorOctober 10, 2016 11:05 am
Jackie Glazier has just signed a two-year sponsorship deal with partypoker, with the Australian pro now taking up her ambassadorial duties alongside six other brand representatives, including Mike Sexton, Tony Dunst, Patrick Leonard, Natalia Breviglieri, Roberto Romanello, as well as 4-time super-middleweight world champion boxer Carl Froch.
Throughout her career, Jackie Glazier has amassed $1,323,493 playing live tournaments, with her biggest win to date a $458,996 payday after finishing runner-up at the 2012 WSOP $3k NLHE event. At the 2013 WSOP Main Event, Glazier then became the ‘Last Women Standing’, eventually finishing in 31st for $229,281, and by August 2014 she had been snapped up by 888Poker. A few months later, Glazier won a coveted gold bracelet at the 2014 WSOP Europe €1k NLHE Ladies Event for €21,850 ($29,534), but her sponsorship deal with the site eventually ended in June of this year. Just four months later, however, and Glazier is now under a major site’s sponsorship umbrella once more.
Commenting on her latest deal, Glazier stated that she was proud to represent partypoker as an ambassador, and was excited to be given the opportunity to help the brand grow in the Australian market, and its surrounding territories. Elaborating further, Glazier said:
“I am confident that together our passion will help us to expand the game of poker in my country. I am looking forward to announcing some games and promotions over the next few weeks that will offer great value to the Australian poker community.”
Jackie Glazier can now be seen playing at partypoker under the screen name “JACKSTARPARTY”, and in the coming period will be wearing the site’s patches as she competes at various live tournaments across the globe. These include playing in her native Australia, in the Dominican Republic at the Caribbean Poker Party $1 Million giveaway, at the WPT Caribbean Poker Party, and at the UK’s Dusk Till Dawn in April 2017, before heading over to the 2017 WSOP in Las Vegas. Commenting on the site’s latest sponsored pro, Group Head of partypoker Tom Waters said:
“It is a pleasure to have Jackie join the partypoker team as an ambassador and we are delighted to have such a prestigious player representing us in the Australian market. We are looking to invest in grassroots poker in Australia and Jackie is the perfect person to assist us in achieving these goals.”
