Yesterday, Day 3 of Event: 41: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em came and went as the final 30 players of a 1,394 field was reduced down to just two—Greg Ostrander and Jackie Glazier. Those two returned on Monday for an impromptu Day 4 with Glazier holding a 9,480,000 to 3,070,000 chip lead over Ostrander.
The high blinds ensured the action was fast-paced, and an hour's worth of play ended up being a wild ride. Glazier whittled down Ostrander a bit before the latter doubled, and then the same scenario repeated itself a short time later. After receiving his second double, Ostrander managed to move into the chip lead and never looked back.
In the final hand, Ostrander raised to 200,000 on the button and Glazier called from the big blind. Both players checked the flop, and the Glazier check-called a bet of 450,000 on the turn. When the peeled off on the river, Glazier checked, Ostrander slid out 1 million, and Glazier moved all in.
Ostrander hesitated for a moment, and then made the call with for a ten-high straight. Glazier showed for two pair and it was all over. Ostrander managed to win his first gold bracelet, not to mention the $742,072 first-place prize, while denying Australia’s Glazier from becoming the first woman to win an open World Series of Poker Event since Vanessa Selbst took down a $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha event back in 2008.
