Forty-two in the money finishes, four final tables and $1,793,532 in prize money. Those are the figures produced by Australian men and women at the 2012 World Series of Poker so far. Whilst there was no bracelet in the first 60 events there is plenty of hope for one in the grand finale; the Main Event.
The lack of bracelets could have been an all-too-different story had lady Luck decided to shine down upon the Australian battlers. Brendon Rubie, Jackie Glazier and David Borg all fell at the last hurdle in their quest to win that elusive bracelet, busting out in second place.
It should not come as a surprise that these three players were also responsible for the three biggest cashes of the series so far. Glazier can lay claim to the largest cash, her $458,996 haul over $48,000 more than Borg's $410,517 and almost double that of the $242,458 Rubie helped himself to.
A number of players have cashed multiple times during the 2012 WSOP, the aforementioned Rubie one of them with two cashes to his name. Christopher Moutzouris went one better by making into the money three times whilst Tim Duckworth must be on first name terms with the Rio's cashiers after cashing four times.
All in all I feel it has been a successful series for Australia and everyone at PokerNetwork have a good feeling about the $10,000 Main Event, which you can follow over on our live reporting pages! Watch this space!
