Kristen Bicknell Wins WSOP Bracelet 10 For Canada

Kristen Bicknell Wins WSOP Bracelet 10 For CanadaCanada’s Kristen Bicknell has won a 10th gold bracelet for her country after taking down the $1,000 World Series of Poker Ladies Championship for $173,922. A total of 954 players entered Event #51 to create a prize pool worth $858,600, and following three days of action the Ottawa resident emerged at the top of the field to claim her first ever bracelet.
Following her impressive victory at the Rio Casino in Las Vegas, the 26 year-old poker pro commented: “I have worked really hard in poker the last couple of years. So although I do not think I played exceptional throughout the whole tournament, I ran really well, it still feels like all my hard work paid off. This was supposed to be just a fun little trip for me. I mostly play cash games online, but I figured I would play the ladies event, since it’s always fun.”
Amongst the notable ladies entering the tournament and booking a cash for themselves was Ting Ho (87th), Jackie Glazier (83rd), Sandra Wong (72nd), Esther Taylor (63rd), Liv Boeree (54th), Danielle Andersen (44th), and Barbara Enright (25th).
Kristen Bicknell would then overcome a tough final table, which included the likes of 2008 WSOP Ladies final tablist Chris Priday (8th), WSOP Circuit winner Mandy Baker (7th) and 2011 WSOPE Ladies Event runner-up Eleanor Gudger (6th), to claim this year’s Ladies No Limit Hold’em Championship bracelet.
Unlike previous years, however, there were no men entering the Ladies competition as a $10,000 buy-in was levied on any male participant.
The final table payouts were as follows:
1st: Kirsten Bicknell – $173,922
2nd: Leslie Haas – $107,616
3rd: Julie Mansacre – $67,331
4th: Shana Matthews – $48,871
5th: Connie Bruce – $36,078
6th: Eleanor Gudger – $27,045
7th: Mandy Baker – $20,572
8th: Chris Priday – $15,858
9th: Cindy Kerslake – $12,389
