Published on 16 July 2013 by Pokerlistings 1470

Australian poker pro Jackie Glazier has cashed in the World Series of Poker Main Event three out of the last four years and this time she posted her deepest run ever. Glazier finished 31st for $229,281, bringing her total career earnings to almost $1.2 million. Glazier also decided to leave Ivey Poker, with whom she was previously signed, to join 888poker.com. Check out this video interview with PokerListings.com to get the full story.

Playing the World Series, I was never after the last female standing title. It would have been great to get two females to the final table and been the last person standing, but now that I do have the title of last woman standing, I really want to use it to inspire more women to play poker and to enter these events because they really can hold themselves against the men. I was always going to be disappointed not making the final table of the World Series main event. Just as the days go on though, you feel that when you're going to bust out or if you do bust out, the disappointment is going to be greater and greater and greater and that's heightened as you go through. So busting day two was always going to be a disappointment, but busting day six is so disappointing. But even still, it's such a great accomplishment and the pressure never really built as far as making the final table because I have always had that on me, but the disappointment definitely is higher.

When you bust out of tournament after tournament, especially even this whole series, it hasn't been a great series for me, it's difficult to get up every single morning and dust yourself off again, come back and enter another tournament and that's the same with busting from the main event. I would probably take a few weeks off poker, but I'm just going to get back in there and hopefully win a major event soon. When you get so close to reaching your goals that you've set out for yourself and then you fall short, it's such a let down and the feeling...it takes me a while to get through it. I just don't wake up the next day and go "Oh ok that's all fine." I really do struggle with the mixed emotions of doing so well, but yet being so bitterly disappointed with the result, even though it was great. It just makes me hungrier and hungrier every single time and I'll fight until I reach my goals that's for sure.

I switched to 888 on day six of the main event. We've had discussions and I really felt that they were the right brand for me, especially with my live tournament schedule and their team and the support that they have. I think we are going to have a really great relationship. Now that I'm with 888 Poker, I'm definitely going to be playing World Series of Poker Europe. I'm so excited to be doing that and so that would be my first event with them. It's in October and hopefully there will be a lot of people joining me and a lot of Australians would be great as well. The poker community in Australia is fantastic. We really do stick together as the support and it's not such a competitive environment. It's like Australians are so happy to see another Australian achieve anything and we are always barracking. We love to barrack. So it's going really well and hopefully my results here inspire more people to play and we'll be just growing and growing.
