The last woman sitting at the WSOP Main Event has been eliminated from the event in 31st place, coming just short of making it to Day 7.
Jackie Glazier was knocked out from the event in the late stages of the day after she lost a showdown against Sergio Castelluccio. Castelluccio raised to 200,000 pre flop with Pocket Tens and was reraised by Glazer, who went all in for 1,975,000 with Ace Queen of Spades.
She was called by the Italian and, soon enough, all three cards on the flop were Nines, which gave Castelluccio a full house but still gave Glazier a few potential outs on the turn and river. However, the Five of Clubs on the turn and the King of Hearts on the river were not the outs she was looking for. As a result, the Aussie was out of the tournament with an extra $229,281 for her solid play over the last five and a half days.
It was a great showing by Glazier, who outlasted a number of previous Main Event winners, including Jonathan Duhamel, Doyle Brunson, Joe Cada and Greg Merson. Her departure from the event capped off what has been a relatively strong showing for women at this year’s WSOP, with three 2013 Gold Bracelets going to females.
It was her best performance at a WSOP Main Event by far as she came 284th in last year’s event. However, she was also the runner up at last year’s $3,000 No Limit event at the WSOP, winning $458,996 in the process.
A total of 27 players remain in the WSOP Main Event going into Day 7. German Anton Morgenstern finished the sixth day of the tournament at the top of chip ladder, with a stack of 21,955,000 chips to his name.
