Two more bracelets were up for grabs as the WSOP headed into the last day of June. Kristen Bicknell won the first one.

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.

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.
