The currently best female poker player in Australia is a former math teacher and a tennis player Jackie Glazier. Her talent has not gone unnoticed and she’s been readily snatched by Full Tilt Poker who are now sponsoring her as the site poker pro. Glazier began playing back in 2008 and said she discovered the lure of poker when playing a home game with friends. She has not gone full-time until December 2009. Her most remarkable achievement in terms of cash was almost $90k she managed to win last year. On Full Tilt’s roster of sponsored professionals she’s the first Australian female.
