888poker has been on a spree of signing new brand ambassadors and has brought on the likes of Jeff Gross, Chris Moorman and Denilson during the last couple of weeks. The second largest poker site in the world has put together a brand new team which features top poker players such as Moorman, Gross, Kara Scott and Dominik Nitsche.
888poker recently published a tweet confirming that it had released Aussie poker pro Jackie Glazier who had been with the brand for the last three years. Glazier joined 888poker when the brand ambassador team featured players like Aussie cricket legend Shane Warne, UFC star Georges St Pierre and WSOP November Niner Sam Holden.
Jackie Glazier was a part of Phil Ivey’s online poker training site IveyPoker when 888poker managed to successfully lure her away. Glazier immediately delivered for 888poker after she won the Ladies Event at the 2013 World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) in Cannes and took home €21,850. Glazier has also been a fantastic ambassador for the brand and has always taken the initiative to promote the 888poker brand through her blog posts, articles and her video blogging. However the last couple of years has not been very impressive for the Aussie poker pro.
In a statement, Glazier said “The last two years I have been disappointed with my results on the table. I have put in more work than ever, and that makes it even harder to take. I did a lot of training and spent a lot of time on forums but wasn’t getting the results. I was super excited for the Aussie Millions but then ran super-super bad during that time. It’s hard not to get a little bit jaded in poker because you can’t control the results. The past two years have been a little hard on me emotionally and mentality.”
Glazier has played non-stop for the last 8 years and believes the stress of playing poker has taken a toll on her. She plans on taking a break from playing poker but will still be involved with the game as she is currently hosting a podcast along with her husband called ‘Dynamic by Design’.
Glazier who is believed to be suffering from depression has decided to skip the 2016 WSOP for the first time in seven years. She will focus on promoting poker in Australia and encourage more female poker players to turn pro.
