Biography

Benny Glaser is a British poker player. Over the course of his career he has won four World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelets and amassed over $3 million in live earnings.

He has also won six SCOOP and four WCOOP titles on PokerStars, and is widely renowned as one of the all-around best British poker players.

Tournament Achievements

Glaser's first tournament cashes came in England in the mid 2010s, and he first travelled 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.

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.

Glaser's Online Success

Away from the live scene, Glaser has one of the strongest PokerStars COOP records of any player. As of January 2022, he is tied third all time for SCOOP titles with six, and has also won four 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 both a SCOOP and WCOOP title every year from 2018-2021.
