Jackie Glazier has signed a two-year contract to represent partypoker, and her former employers 888Poker has picked up the former German TV presenter of the European Poker Tour, Natalie Hof.
Partypoker continue their recent trend of investing in player sponsorships deals with the signing of the World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winner Jackie Glazier.
Glazier has earned $1.3m in live tournament earnings. Her finest moments on the live felt include a runner-up finish to Greg Ostrander in a $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em event at the 2012 World Series of Poker (WSOP), a 31st place finish in the Main Event the following year, coupled with her bracelet win at the World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) Ladies Event in Cannes.

The online poker site is marketing Glazier as the ‘new face of partypoker for Australia,’ and Group Head of the online site, Tom Waters, said that Glazier was an essential addition to the team as they look to broaden their horizons in Australia.
The two-year deal will see Glazier appearing on partypoker as JACKSTARPARTY. Those who like to sweat her action can follow her streams on partypokertv. Until as recently as June, Glazier was a member of 888Poker, and it will be interesting to see if any of her live streamers follow her to her new site.
Glazier will wear the partypoker patch in the partypoker Million, World Poker Tour (WPT) Caribbean, MILLIONS at Dusk Till Dawn, and will also represent the brand at the 2017 WSOP.
Glazier joins Roberto Romanello, Carl Froch, Patrick Leonard, Tony Dunst, Mike Sexton, and Natalia Breviglieri as representatives of the site – the largest contingent of personnel in recent times.
