Tournament Achievements

Glaser's first tournament cashes came in England in the mid-2010s, and he first traveled to the United States for the 2015 WSOP where he won his first WSOP bracelet in Event #33: $1,500 2-7 Triple Draw.

"It means a lot, just the prestige, the accomplishment," he said after his win. "It's amazing, something you just dream of. It feels quite surreal right now because I've been dreaming about it for so long. So happy, so proud."

More bracelets followed in 2016, with Glaser winning two in the space of a week! First he triumphed in Event #26: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Low Split-8 or Better and followed that up with victory in the marquee Event #32: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Low Split-8 or Better Championship for combined cashes of over $650,000.

His fourth bracelet would come in another Championship event, this time in Event #78: $10,000 Razz Championship at the 2021 WSOP, cementing his status as one of the best mixed game players around.

In 2023, Glaser won his fifth bracelet with a victory in the $10,000 Limit 2-7 Triple Draw Championship for $311,428.

Outside of the WSOP, Glaser has enjoyed a number of successes at tournaments around the world. He has won numerous mixed game side event titles on the European Poker Tour in disciplines such as H.O.R.S.E., Quadruple Stud, Pot-Limit Omaha, Seven Card Stud and Omaha Hi-Lo.

In 2021, he also enjoyed success at the WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic, coming second in the $10,000 8-Game Mix for $57,000 and narrowly missed out on joining the WPT Champions Club the following year at the WPT World Championship.

Glaser's Online Success

Away from the live scene, Glaser has one of the strongest PokerStars COOP records of any player. He has ten SCOOP titles, and has also won a record 15 WCOOP titles.

His fifth SCOOP title came in 2020, with Glaser telling PokerNews that it was his "ninja manouevres" that saw him clinch the title.

One year later, Glaser bagged his sixth SCOOP title. 2021 also saw him add another WCOOP title, with Glaser having won a SCOOP and WCOOP title every year from 2018-2023. By the end of the 2023 SCOOP, Glaser had ten SCOOP titles to his name.
