Jackie Glazier is the latest high-profile name to join partypoker as a brand ambassador. The Australian pro signed a two-year deal with the poker brand to join the likes of Mike Sexton, Tony Dunst, Patrick Leonard, Natalia Breviglieri, Roberto Romanello and boxer Carl Froch.
During her very illustrious career, Glazier has amassed $1,323,493 playing live tournaments, with $458,996 as her biggest payday. In 2014, she was signed up by 888Poker after a string of big results. Her sponsorship with 888Poker ended this year and without much delay, partypoker secured her services.
Commenting on the latest development, Glazier said:
“I am confident that together our passion will help us to expand the game of poker in my country. I am looking forward to announcing some games and promotions over the next few weeks that will offer great value to the Australian poker community.”
Jackie will feature on the partypoker tables under the “JACKSTARPARTY” screenname. She will participate in some of the biggest poker tournaments across the globe.
Soon after the deal with the Aussie was signed, Group Head of partypoker Tom Waters said:
“It is a pleasure to have Jackie join the partypoker team as an ambassador and we are delighted to have such a prestigious player representing us in the Australian market. We are looking to invest in grassroots poker in Australia and Jackie is the perfect person to assist us in achieving these goals.”
Glazier is one of the best female poker players in the world. This is a smart move by partypoker and it will help the company in appealing to a bigger audience going forward.
