With one major stop in the EPT London now finishing up, we didn’t have to wait too long for another with the World Series Of Poker Europe now under way for the next couple of weeks. The European instalment of the series started up with the Ladies Event which is due to play across two days at the felt, with Day 1 being completed yesterday.
It attracted 65 women and would play down until just the final eight that will do battle for the title later on this afternoon. Once it finished we did indeed have eight final table players with Jackie Glazier the one out in front right now on 57,400 chips.
The buy-in for the event was €1,100 which meant a prize pool of €62,400 was created which would be shared among the top eight finishers, which means one woman who made the final table could be going home with nothing.
There were some big names that came into this event with PokerStars Team Pro Liv Boeree, Gaelle Baumann and Jackie Glazier being the biggest of them. Only Glazier and Baumann could make it into Day 2 though as Boeree fell in 12th place.
Sad. Bust 12th.

This event is far more than just the winnings too as it offers a much deserved WSOP bracelet for the winner, which as we know are a much wanted commodity for any player in the world. Only two women in the starting field have ever won a bracelet in Loni Harwood and Allyn Jaffrey, yet both were eliminated throughout the day meaning we will have a fresh bracelet winner for this event.
