The 2013 WSOP Ladies Event Champion Kristen Bicknell faded a KNOCKOUT field of 2,158 runners to win Event #46 $1,500 NL BOUNTY. Bicknell became the first woman to win a bracelet at the 2016 WSOP and she also became the first Canadian to break through to the winner's circle. Shaun Deeb took down Event #49 $1,500 Seven Card Stud and survived a tough final two tables. Deeb, the legendary online maestro,put some of his deft live-action skills on display as he won his second overall WSOP bracelet.

Two more bracelets were up for grabs as the WSOP headed into the last day of June. Kristen Bicknell won the first one. The Canadian online pro and full-time student was one of three players who returned on Day 4 to determine a champion in Event #46 $1,500 NL BOUNTY. Her win marked a second-career bracelet and she had previously won the 2013 Ladies Event. Bicknell was a SuperNove Elite on Stars who has logged over 14 million hands in her shrt career, but she recently transitioned from an online cash game grinder to a live tournament regular. So far, so good for KB!

Shaun Deeb added another piece of jewelry to his collection. He took down the 10K PLO Championship last year, but this year he won Event #49 $1,500 Seven Card Stud for a $111K score. Deeb now a bracelet for each wrist.

On Friday, the 10K PLO Championship and the NL Shootout will play down to a winner. One, if not both events, should be on the live stream webcast.

WSOP E46 Kristen B

It took four days, but semi-pro Kristen Bicknell faded a field of 2,158 runners to win the Knockout event and $290K for first place. John Myung busted first on Day 4 setting up a heads-up bout between Bicknell and Hungary's Norbert Szecsi. She easily dispatched the Huungarian for the win.

Kristen Bicknell became the first female to win a bracelet at the 2016 WSOP and she crushed an open event too. She also made the citizens of the Great White North happy as the first Canadian to ship a bracelet at the 2016 WSOP. Yup, it wasn't Danny Boy or Timex or SirWatts who won the first bracelet for Canada, eh? Nope... it was Kristen Bicknell!

Bicknell previously won the 2013 WSOP Ladies Event, which was her first bracelet. This win in Event #46 marked her second piece of bling. Bicknell also only made two final tables at the WSOP...and she won both.
