An historic first day at the 2013 World Series of Poker Europe belonged to Australian Jackie Glazier as she powered to a massive chip lead heading to the Ladies Event final table.

The first-ever WSOPE Ladies Event kicked off the first-ever WSOPE held at the Casino Enghien-en-Bains venue outside Paris today with 65 ladies buying in for €1,100.

By day's end the story was all Glazier as she racked up 57,400 for a commanding chip lead to start the final table.

The last woman standing at the WSOP Main Event in Vegas, Glazier looked zoned in from start to finish and ready to grab the WSOP bracelet that eluded her this summer.

Baumann Hangs On as Short Stack, Boeree Out in 12th

Gaëlle Baumann
Baumann: Still has a shot.

Speaking of last women standing in the Main Event, France's Gaelle Baumann was also on hand today in Enghien-en-Bains and managed to squeak into the final eight as the short stack.

With just 4,500 in chips (11 big blinds) Baumann will have to make a move very early tomorrow to have any chance of making a run.

She'll hope to hang on for at least one more elimination as that's when the money will kick in as well. The final table and chip counts:

  • Seat 1: Celine Bastian - 15,675
  • Seat 2: Maryline Valente - 35,725
  • Seat 3: Laurie Bismuth - 31,975
  • Seat 4: Jackie Glazier - 57,400
  • Seat 5: Anais Lerouge - 15,975
  • Seat 6: Nathalie Odet - 9,150
  • Seat 7: Gaelle Baumann - 4,500
  • Seat 8: Sherrill Lindsey - 25,625

The other most famous name in the final two tables - PokerStars pro Liv Boeree - fell just outside the final eight when her short stack ran into the kings of Anais Lerouge.
