Full Tilt Sign Aussie Poker Prodigy
Poker giants Full Tilt Poker have announced the capture of up-and-coming Australian poker starlet Jackie Glazier, with her recent form proving enough to secure her Red Pro status on the site.
Having signed for Full Tilt, Glazier becomes the first Australian woman to join the site’s roster of sponsored pros, cementing her reputation for being the best female poker player in the country right now.
An experienced tennis player and qualified maths teacher, Glazier discovered the game of poker in 2008 while playing a regular home game with friends and quickly turned that experience into significant live results.
In 2010, Glazier had her best year to date when she secured $89,275 in live winnings, a figure that is made all the more remarkable by the fact that the Melbourne lady didn’t even make the decision to go full-time until December 2009.
With her 2010 haul being recognised by Tilt as a sign of significant early promise, Glazier was quickly snapped up by the site and says she is now looking forward to becoming a poker ambassador and encouraging more women to join the game.
