Jackie Glazer Falls Just Short Of Bagging A Bracelet For The Girls
Australian poker pro Jackie Glazier has fallen agonisingly short of her bid to become the first female WSOP champion in an open-entry event since 2008 after she lost out to Greg Ostrander heads-up in the $3,000 NLHE event.
Though she held a 3-to-1 chip lead over her opponent when play was paused overnight before the commencement of the heads-up battle, Glazier struggled to finish off a spirited Ostrander and he soon doubled back into contention.
Another double up followed shortly afterwards and once he took the chip lead, there was no looking back for Ostrander as he finished the job to land the title and $742,072 prize, with Glazier being forced to settle for $458,996 as runner-up.
In the final hand, Ostrander min-raised the button to 200k and Glazier called, with both players checking through the 6s 9s Qc flop. The 8s on the turn prompted a check-call of 450,000 from Glazier, while the Ah river saw her check-raise all-in.
Ostrander paused briefly before making the call with 10s 7h for a turned straight, which was good against Glazierís 8c 6d for turned two-pair and the match was over, with Ostrander emerging as the latest WSOP bracelet winner from a starting field of 1,394.
