Kristen Bicknell won the biggest prize of her career, winning first place in the Poker Masters Event #6: $25,000 No-Limit Hold’em. For this victory she received $408000 and now she has almost $4.6 million in live tournaments. More than 50 people took part in the tournament, among which there were famous professionals, such as: Manig Loeser, Byron Kaverman, Jeremy Ausmus, Sean Winter, Erik Seidel, Nick Schulman, and Stephen Chidwick.
In the heads-up, Kristen played against Chance Kornuth, who for the third time took second place in the current Poker Masters series. The final hand saw Bicknell all in with pocket eights against Kornuth’s nines. Bicknell improved to a straight on the river to lock up the $408,000 top prize, the biggest of her career.
Bicknell said, “It feels incredible to win this event. I final tabled the World Poker Tour event last week and I did not feel happy with my final table play, so that run was kind of bittersweet. I wasn’t planning on playing this tournament but I felt the itch and in Las Vegas and I’m very happy with how it played out!”
