Jackie Glazier wins!
Jackie Glazier wins!

Hand #109

It’s all over and Australia has a new WSOP bracelet winner with Jackie Glazier triumphant in the Ladies Event here at the WSOP Europe.

Glazier was trying hard to pick her spots against and unpredictable opponent, while Maryline Valente was proving very effective with her “big ball” approach. However eventually it backfired, as Glazier found a premium hand at the right time.

The final hand started with Glazier raising to 2,500 from the button. Valente announced all in for somewhere around 90,000 chips but this time Glazier instantly called.

Valente showed 6 6 as Glazier gave a little fist-pump as she stood to her feet and tabled J J.

Glazier would have to fade the two sixes in the deck and she did exactly that as the board fell 4 A Q 5 7.  A gallant run by Maryline Valente would see her take home €13,500 for a fine tournament as the Aussies will awake tomorrow morning to the news that Jackie Glazier is now a WSOP bracelet winner. Congratulations Jackie!

Hand #104

Maryline Valente had the button and limped. Jackie Glazier checked out of the big blind and the dealer spread out a 9 9 8 flop. Glazier opted to check-fold to a bet of 2,300 here and that was that!

Hand #106

Maryline Valente limped the button and Jackie Glazier checked. On the J 6 2 turn, Glazier check-called a bet of 2,300. The 5 turn would see a couple of checks and the 8 river would see Glazier bet and Valente immediately fold.

Hand #107

Jackie Glazier was on the button and opened it up to 2,500. Maryline Valente made the call and the dealer readied a 4 8 9 flop. Glazier and Valente both tapped the table and a 5 hit the turn. This time Valente bet 4,500 and Glazier made the call.

On the T river, Valente led for 6,000 and Glazier let her cards go.

Hand #108

Three to a break

Hand #101

Jackie Glazier raised to 2,700 from the button and took it down uncontested.

Hand #102

It was Maryline Valente’s turn to raise and take it as she made it 3,700 to go from the button and Jackie Glazier didn’t offer any reisistance.

Hand #103

Jackie Glazier limped the button and Maryline Valente checked her big blind. The flop and turn were checked before Valente bet 3,400 on the river on the 2 3 K 2 9 board. Glazier insta-called with Q 9 for the best hand against Valente’s A 8.

With that, the players are going to take a quick bathroom break. The chips are close but Glazier is just ahead with 106,000 to Valente’s 89,000.

Happy 100th

Hand #96

Maryline Valente raised to 3,100 on the button and Jackie Glazier made the call. The flop fell 8 T K and Glazier check-called for 4,400.

The turn was the Q and Glazier again checked to Valente who bet 5,600. Glazier called to see the A fall on the river. Glazier then pulled the move of her opponent as she announced herself all in with a big overbet. This time Valente gave it up as Glazier regains a slight lead.

Hand #97

Jackie Glazier folded and Maryline Valente received her umpteenth walk of the day.

Hand #98

Maryline Valente gave one back as Jackie Glazier happily accepted a walk.

Maryline Valente is a tough cookie to crack

Hand #93

Jackie Glazier raised to 2,500 on the button and Maryline Valente made the call. Both players checked the 4 6 8 flop before Valente led out for 4,200 on the K turn. That was enough to see Glazier again toss her cards away.

Hand #94

Maryline Valente limped the button before Jackie Glazier popped it to 3,200 from the big blind. Valente came back with a rare four-bet to 6,500 and Glazier made the call to see the flop of 6 5 K. Glazier would try to take the initiative with a bet of 8,800 but Valente again announced herself all in. Glazier was forced to fold as this big bet strategy of Valente appears to be working as she’s now evened up the chip counts.

Hand #95

Jackie Glazier raised the button and Maryline Valente made the call before the two players checked down the board of Q A 7 3 5. Valente tabled T 7 to take yet another pot.

Valente playing big ball

Glazier gaining control

Hand #80

Maryline Valente limped the button and Jackie Glazier was happy enough to see a cheap flop of Q 3 4. Things weren’t so cheap post-flop. Glazier led out for 1,600 before Valente popped it to 4,800. Glazier then re-raised to 20,000 which was too much for Valente who flashed the Q before folding.

Glazier has extended her advantage to now sit with 128,000 chips to Valente’s 67,000.

Hand #81

Jackie Glazier raised to 2,000 from the button before Maryline Valente three-bet to 6,400 in the big blind. Glazier made the call and the flop arrived 3 2 5.

Valente splashed out a wad of 1,000-denomination chips and before we could get a count, Glazier’s chips were in the muck.

Hand #82

Maryline Valente raised big from the button, making it 3,200 to go. Jackie Glazier made the call and the flop landed 3 K 6.

Both players checked and the turn produced the 2. Glazier check-called for 4,700 and the A found its way onto the river. Glazier checked again and Valente didn’t hold back, firing out a bet of 6,400. It didn’t deter Glazier from a call with K 9 for a pair of kings as Valente tabled an air-ball with Q 5.

Glazier is gaining control as she moves up to 135,000 to Valente’s 60,000.

Laurie Bismuth Eliminated in 3rd Place

Hand #69

Laurie Bismuth folded the button, Jackie Glazier raised to 1,500 from the small blind and Maryline Valente called out of the big blind.

The 4 J 5 flop saw Glazier check-call a bet of 2,700. Both players then checked the 3 turn and the 8 river. At showdown, Glazier’s K 5 and Valente’s K 5 meant that it was a chopped pot.

Hand #70

When Jackie Glazier folded the button, Maryline Valente raised to 2,200 from the small blind. Laurie Bismuth folded the big blind and the pot went to Valente.

Hand #71

Laurie Bismuth opened to 1,600 from the button and Jackie Glazier three-bet to 2,600 from the small blind. Bismuth then moved all in for around 25,000 and Glazier instantly called.

It was Bismuth at-risk holding A J against Glazier’s A K.

The 4 6 4 7 K board wasn’t helpful for Bismuth and just like that she was eliminated in 3rd place, collecting €8,950.

Big Hand for Valente, Big Fold for Glazier

Hand #27

Jackie Glazier started with the button and the action was opened by Lauire Bismuth to 1,200 from under the gun. The table got out of the way and it was some blinds and antes to Bismuth.

Hand #28

Folded around to Celine Bastian on the button and she would open it up to 1,200. Maryline Valente called out of the small blind and the dealer flipped over a 2 4 3 flop. Valente led for 2,700 here and Bastian opted to get out of the way.

Hand #29

The action folded to Maryline Valente on the button and she raised it up to 1,900. The two blinds folded and the pot went to Valente.

Hand #30

Laurie Bismuth started the hand with the button and Maryline Valente opened to 1,900 from under the gun. Only Jackie Glazier called out of the small blind and with that the dealer spread out three cards on the felt.

When Glazier opted to fold, Valente was kind enough to table her A 9 for a monster two-pair and nut-flush draw. Glazier claimed to have folded J T.

Nathalie Odet eliminated in 5th place (€4,770)

Nathalie Odet eliminated in 5th place
Nathalie Odet eliminated in 5th place

Hand #26

Just one hand after doubling up, Nathalie Odet has fallen in 5th place.

Celine Bastian opened with a raise from the hijack and Laurie Bismuth as well as Odet came along to see a flop of K 6 4.

Odet led out with a bet of 3,000 which forced a fold from Bastian, but Bismuth clicked it up to 6,000. Odet moved all in and Bismuth made the call, tabling a craftily-played A A to have Odet’s K Q top pair in trouble.

The 5 turn and 6 completed the board to see Odet eliminated in 5th place for €4,770 in prize money.

It’s been a wild ride on this final table so far! Jackie Glazier holds onto the lead with 75,000, Maryline Valente is next best with around 65,000. Laurie Bismuth has 45,000 with Celine Bastian on the short stack with 10,000.

Double for Odet

Hand #24

Maryline Valente opened to 1,500 from the button and Laurie Bismuth made the call in the big blind as they saw a flop of Q 9 A.

Bismuth checked and then quickly folded when Valente continued with a bet of 4,500.

Hand #25

Nathalie Odet has landed a much-needed double up. Her chips went into the middle preflop with A T against the 7 7 of Laurie Bismuth.

It would take until the river, but Odet caught the ace from space on the board of K T 2 2 A to double through. Odet is now up to 16,000 in chips.

Hand #23

Jackie Glazier raised it up to 1,200 from under the gun and Sherrill Lindsey made the call in the cutoff. Laurie Bismuth came along from the big blind and we had a multi-way flop of 3 K 7.

Bismuth checked and Glazier continued with a bet of 2,000. Lindsey made the call and Bismuth escaped as the Q hit the turn. Glazier checked and Lindsey bet out 4,000. Glazier made the call to see the 5 complete the board.

Glazier liked the look of that card as she announced herself all in. Lindsey had about 12,000 behind, but she couldn’t find a fold as she committed with K T for top pair, only to discover Glazier had rivered the nut flush with A J.

A great run by the friendly American as Lindsey picks up €3,800 for 6th place.

Nathalie Odet moved all in from under the gun and once again picked up the blinds and antes.

Hand #19

Celine Bastian raised from the hijack to 1,200 and Laurie Bismuth made the call on the button. The two took a flop of 8 6 9 where the action checked around. The turn brought the K and Bastian bet out 1,700 which produced a fold from her opponent.

Hand #20

Laurie Bismuth raised from the cutoff to 1,200 before Jackie Glazier responded with a rare three-bet from the button to 2,800. The blinds folded and Bismuth didn’t want to have anything to do with it, as she tossed her cards into the muck.

Hand #21

Jackie Glazier continued the momentum with a raise from the cutoff to 1,200. Celine Bastian made the call in the big blind and the flop landed T 5 4. Bastian checked to Glazier who bet 1,200 which was enough to take it down.

Hand #22

Jackie Glazier made it three in a row as she raised from the hijack position to 1,200 to take down the blinds and antes.

Passing chips

Hand #13

Maryline Valante opened things up with a raise to 1,600 from the cutoff which was enough to win the pot without resistance.

Hand #14

Celine Bastian kicked it up to 1,200 from middle position and found callers in Maryline Valente and Laurie Bismuth in position. The trio saw a flop of 8 8 2 and Bastian checked it to Valente who tossed out 2,725 which was enough to take it down.

Hand #15

The short-stacked Nathalie Odet finally got in on the action on the final table, moving all in for around 8,000 from the button. She was successful in padding her stack with the blinds and antes.

Hand #16

Jackie Glazier opened up with a raise to 1,200 from the hijack position. Maryline Valente defended her big blind with a call to see a T Q A flop. Both players checked and Glazier would win the pot with a bet of 1,500 on an unknown turn card.

Hand #17

Sherrill Lindsey raised the cutoff position to 1,625 which was enough to collect the blinds and antes.

Hand #11

Jackie Glazier raised it up from under the gun to 1,200 before Celina Bastian moved all in for around 15,000 from the button. Glazier gave it up and Bastian collected a handy pot.

Hand #12

The short-stacked Gaelle Baumann moved all in for 3,800 from early position holding 4 4 and was racing for her tournament life when Laurie Bismuth made the call with A 9 out of the small blind.

Baumann needed the board to brick out but Bismuth paired up on the 9 Q 5 7 2 board to see Baumann sneak into the money in 7th place for €3,200 in prize money.

Anais Lerouge bubbles in 8th place

Bubble girl, Anais Lerouge
Bubble girl, Anais Lerouge

Hand #10

In a shock to everyone in attendance at the Ladies Event final table, the bubble has burst in dramatic fashion with Anais Lerouge the unlikely bubble girl.

The action started with Lerouge opening with a raise to 1,225 from middle position. Marline Valente defended her big blind with a call to see a flop of J Q 2. It looked like an action flop and we were not mistaken.

Valente checked to Lerouge who bet 1,350. Valente cut out a check-raise to 4,300 before Lerouge moved all in. Valente quickly made the call and tabled T 9 for a monstrous straight-flush draw, but her outs were severely cut when Lerouge opened A 2 for the nut flush draw with a pair of deuces to go with it.

Lerouge was in good shape to double but that changed when the T appeared on the turn to put Valente in front and leave Lerouge on the ropes. The river bricked the 3 and Lerouge is a surprise elimination in 8th place as the remaining ladies are now in the money.

Raise and take it

Hand #6

Laurie Bismuth raised it up to 1,200 from the cutoff position and collected the blinds and antes without opposition.

Hand #7

Anais Lerouge had the button and her raise to 1,300 was respected as it was her turn to collect the blinds and antes.

Hand #8

In an instant replay of the previous hand, Anais Lerouge raised to 1,300, this time from the cutoff position, and took down the pot.

Hand #9

Maryline Valente’s raise to 1,700 from under the gun was strong and her opponents quickly got out of the way.

Cautious start

Hand #1

The first hand of the final table would start with the short-stacked Gaelle Baumann on the button. Action folded around the table to Sherrill Lindsey in the small blind who completed. Celine Bastian checked her option in the big blind and the two took a flop of 9 5 4.

Lindsey checked and then folded to a bet of 700 from Bastian.

Hand #2

Again the action passed around the table to the blinds, indicating that things could be rather tight in this initial bubble period. Celina Bastian completed the small blind and Maryline Valente checked her option in the big blind to take a flop of K A 4.

Bastian led out with a bet of 700 and Valente made the call as the 6 appeared on the turn. Bastian checked and Valente bet out 1,300 which was enough to take it down.

Hand #3

The limping continued next hand as Celina Bastian limped in from the button. Maryline Valente called in the small blind and Laurie Bismuth checked in the big blind to see a flop of 4 T 9. Action checked to Bismuth who bet 700 to take it down.

Hand #4

Maryline Valente had the button but Gaelle Baumann moved all in from middle position for a total of 4,200 to take down the blinds and antes uncontested.

Hand #5

With a limp from Sherrill Lindsey in front of her, Laurie Bismuth raised it up to 1,600 from the button. Action folded back to Lindsey who made the call as the flop was spread 4 4 7. Lindsey checked to Bismuth who took it down with a continuation bet of 2,100.

The First WSOP Europe Gold Bracelet Will be Awarded to a Lady

The last ladies late on Day 1
The last ladies late on Day 1

There are a lot of firsts today. Firstly, it’s the first time the World Series of Poker Europe has taken place in Paris. Secondly, the first-ever Ladies Event at the WSOPE is set to enter the record books. Thirdly, it’s the first final table of the 2013 WSOPE.  

When the €1,100 Ladies Event began at the Casino Enghein-en-Bains venue yesterday, there were 65 hopefuls looking to make it deep in a WSOPE event. However, by the time Day 1 was over only 8 players had survived.

There is a somewhat modest prize pool of €62,400 up for grabs and interestingly not all of the players at the final table are guaranteed a piece of that prize pool just yet. Only the top seven players will lock up at least €3,200 and keep themselves in contention for the €21,850 top prize.

Here is how the final eight line up:

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

 

Celine Bastian is a member of PokerStars France Team TV Stars and will start the final day of the Ladies Event around the middle of the pack. Over the last few years Bastian has managed dozens of cashes in tournaments mostly held throughout France. Bastian’s best result came last year when she collected €18,315 for winning a €600 NLHE side event at the WSOPE in Cannes.

As far as we can tell, France’s Maryline Valente only has one recorded tournament result on her record. The result happens to be in a ladies event, so Valente certainly knows what it is like to rumble in this sort of field. Valente starts the day second in chips.

Another French local, Laurie Bismuth was the quiet achiever on Day 1, managing to accumulate a hefty 31,975 in chips, which is good for the third largest stack. Like Valente, Bismuth has cashed in a ladies event before and is looking poised to do that here at the 2013 WSOP Europe.

Arguably the highest profile player in the entire field on Day 1 was Australia’s Jackie Glazier and now, on the final day, Glazier has a big chip lead. Glazier has already had a big 2013, finishing as the last lady standing in the WSOP Main Event and eventually placing 31st for a US$229,281 score. In total, Glazier has more than US$1 million in tournament results. Glazier finished 2nd in a WSOP $3,000 NLHE event in 2012 and will be looking to go one better and take home the gold today.

One of the more experienced players at the final table, Anais Lerouge will be looking to use that experience to keep the WSOPE Ladies bracelet on home soil. Lerouge has managed at least a dozen tournament results, with her largest being a 2nd place finish for €68,050 in the Partouche Poker Tour Main Event in 2010.

One of six French ladies at the final table, Nathalie Odet is seemingly one of the least experienced players remaining. Odet also happens to be one of the short stacks. In spite of this, we saw on Day 1 that Odet had the skills to make it this far and so she will be looking to run up her stack and go all the way.

France’s Gaelle Baumann famously finished as the last lady standing and in 10th place in the 2012 WSOP Main Event. Despite that result being worth US$590,442, Baumann was left wondering what could have been. Now, Baumann has a second chance at winning a WSOP gold bracelet. However, Baumann is the short stack with only a little over ten big blinds, so she will need to find some help early on the final day.

Along with Glazier, the USA’s Sherrill Lindsey is the only non-French player at the final table. Lindsey was visibly having fun at the felt on Day 1 and with one of the larger stacks at the final table, will surely be having some more fun today. Lindsey’s best recorded result was in January of this year when she finished 4th place for US$11,076 in a WSOP Circuit side event in Choctaw.

 

Regardless of what happens, later tonight is going to be an exciting moment as the inaugural WSOPE Ladies Event champion is crowned.

So, who will win the first WSOPE gold bracelet of 2013? Well, be sure to stay tuned to PokerListings to find out as we bring you all the live updates from 5.00pm local time.
