Jackie Glazier tries for WSOP gold today

I’m really starting to feel good about the predictions I made back at the beginning of the year when I said that women will win multiple bracelets at the 2012 World Series of Poker, AND that a woman will make the final table of the WSOP Main Event. Heading into a heads-up battle with Greg Ostrander, Jackie Glazier will take a commanding 3-to-1 chip lead as the two battle for the $3k NLHE bracelet.

If you don’t know who Jackie Glazier is you should. The Australian has been on fire in 2012, and in another column I tagged her as one of the Women to watch at the WSOP. Glazier is looking to join Allyn Jaffrey Shulman as 2012 WSOP bracelet winners, having already secured the largest cash of her career.

The final table was chock-full of poker talent, with Glazier sitting in a very good position with over 1.6 million chips, good enough for 4th place heading into the final table, but well behind chip-leader Greg Ostrander and his 2.6 million chips:

* Seat 1: Kyle Frey — 1,910,000

* Seat 2: Morten Mortensen — 495,000

* Seat 3: Darryl Ronconi — 1,045,000

* Seat 4: Roger Fontes — 318,000

* Seat 5: Greg Ostander — 2,645,000

* Seat 6: Joseph Chaplin — 745,000

* Seat 7: JP Kelly — 1,379,000

* Seat 8: Jackie Glazier — 1,646,000

* Seat 9: Paul Vas Nunes — 1,678,000

* Seat 10: Dylan Hortin — 890,000

With the most dangerous player in the field on her immediate right, JP Kelly, and the chip leader two more seat down, Glazier drew a very favorable seat at the final table and she made the most of it, chipping-up early and often at the final table. It took some time, but Kelly was the first player eliminated from the final table and after his elimination players started hitting the rail, leaving only Glazier and Ostrander at the end of the night. With the players already having played through the day’s 10-levels the tournament was halted and will resume Monday at 1 PM local time.

Here is a look at the final table payouts for the tournament:

* 1st Place: $742,072

* 2nd Place: $458,996

* 3rd place: Paul Vas Nunes — $290,407

* 4th place: Morten Mortensen — $210,793

* 5th place: Roger Fontes — $155,498

* 6th place: Darryl Ronconi — $116,452

* 7th place: Joseph Chaplin — $88,481

* 8th place: Kyle Frey — $68,121

* 9th place: Dylan Hortin — $53,126

* 10th place: JP Kelly — $41,976
