Double Digits! Kristen Bicknell Wins WSOP Ladies Championship & Canada’s 10th Bracelet


Kristen-Bicknell-WSOPOntario’s Kristen Bicknell will stand in front of a sea of poker players at the 2013 World Series of Poker on Canada Day while our anthem plays and she is presented with the $10,000 (with a 90% discount) Ladies No Limit Hold’em Championship Bracelet.

It just doesn’t get much better than that for a poker player, and more than $173,000 to go with the experience certainly doesn’t damper the mood any either.

Kristen-Bicknell-2013-WSOPThough she had posted a resectable better than $35,000 in live tournament winnings prior to taking this down, playing as “krissyb24”, Kristen has also proven to be veteran on the online felts, with more than $275,000 in tracked cashes. Add today’s result in and you have a champion with nearly half a million in career winnings.

Despite this six-figure win over 953 other competitors participating, it seems tournament poker is not necessarily Kristen’s only niche, as on her blog, ( the Saint Catharines player speaks mainly of 24 tabling as a “proud rake back pro” who first archived Super Nova Elite in 2010 and continues to grind away to maintain that status. She also coaches poker on the side, as a full time pro earning her living through the game.

Congratulations to her on adding this most coveted poker achievement to her growing list!

Calgary’s Cindy Kerslake also made the official final table, finishing 9th for better than $12,000.

Any of the micro-stakes HORSE games will play online MTTS and SNGs. Live, Tournaments and Satellites up to $550. I love the game but am far to social to take it seriously and sometimes give up a little to much information at the table because I enjoy discussing the game, so decided it was safest for my bankroll to take up writing about the game. That way I still get to meet the cool people and opinions on the game, but with a little less risk.
