The Melbourne Poker Championships 2012 ended when Jackie Glazier won the Main Event and bagged the trophy and the prize amount of $95,000 in a spectacular final match. 433 players took part in the event which was happening in the Crown Poker room. The players enjoyed the three opening fights of the main events happening there. This wonderful poker for Australians had almost all the eminent poker players from different parts of Melbourne, other interstate players and many previous poker champions of Australia. The presence of all these popular and known poker players made the poker championship event vibrant and colorful.
The championship which continued for almost a week had its final table with ten players and one of the most talented poker players Ryan Hong had a big chip lead. The starting of the game was a cautious one and as the game continued, one by one the players dropped because the big cards kept on getting passed around the table. For the players with short stacks it became difficult to have double ups and they could remain alive in the game. The first person to go was Ismail Ismail when his King-queen ran into Liwei Han’s ace queen. Paul Schembri’s ace-jack ran into Nishi Gamage’s pocket jacks.
Gamage was the wild card in the competition. The run of Jackie Glazier started when Stelios Yenofkian of 8th position got eliminated. She had a full house and she induced a call from Yenofkian. As Galzer was making her way towards the chip lead Sherrie Gelberg, another woman on the table got eliminated next. With her ace-king, Gelberg got her chips against Simon Moshi’s ace-jack but she got eliminated finally when she had a jack on the flop. Gelberg was the person to finish on the 7th position during the final tabling of the competition as she could not improve her results.
Simon Kidson was able to come back to the competition but all his effort ended when he got ace-five against the ace-king of Simon Joshi while Nishi Gamage got the 5th position. Gamage continued with the move with ace-6 while Moshi was continuing with his 5, a third five on the flop shattered the chances of Gamage continuing the game but Moshi continued the game.
Glazier slowly took the control of the game after she was landed in trouble by Moshi’s cards. The game between Galzier and Moshi ended when she showed the cards- 8 and 4 for two pairs and the game was over. Glazier got eliminated during the first two opening flights of the competitions but after taking the advantage of the repechage format, she made entry into the game again on the second day. She posed herself as threat to the other poker players and finally made her way to the trophy.
