Kristen Bicknell wins her second WSOP bracelet in 1 500 Bounty

Kristen Bicknell wins her second WSOP-bracelet in $1,500 Bounty

In a world that is dominated by men, it is always good to see a woman at the top of the list. Canadian pro Kristen Bicknell, who won her first bracelet in the $10,000 Ladies No Limit Hold'em Championship in 2013, was the strongest in the bounty tournament, which drew 2,158 runners.

 

 

36 players returned on day 3 of the tournament, with Kristen Bicknell in good shape as she was second in chips, with a stack just below Steve Gee's chipstack. After some hours of play, the unofficial final table of 10 was as follows:

Bicknell was the chipleader, but the top 5 of the leaderboard were all very close together. After seven of the final 10 players were eliminated, Bicknell, Szecsi and Myung would return for the final day, with Bicknell once again being the chipleader.

 

 

After 40 hands of threeway play, John Myung was all-in with ace-jack against Bicknell's pocket jack's, sending him home with $130,588. Only nine hands later Bicknell secured her second WSOP-bracelet. On a board of Bicknell shoved, enough to put Szecsi at risk, and after a couple of minutes he decided to call with just a pair of nines. He took home $179,625 for his second place finish.
