Kristen "krissyb24" Bicknell raised to 56,000 from the cutoff, Landon "ActionDealer" Tice called from the big blind. The flop came the {8-Hearts}{k-Clubs}{9-Hearts}. Bicknell bet 45,000 and was called.

Bicknell had the {q-Clubs}{10-Hearts} while Tice had the {k-Spades}{7-Clubs} to give Tice the double.

Nikhil Gera
Nikhil Gera

Nikhil "momndad" Gera moved all in for 377,002 from early position and William "swaggyb" Corvino three-bet jammed over the top from middle position, which prompted all the other remaining players to fold.

Nikhil "momndad" Gera: {k-Hearts}{q-Clubs}
William "swaggyb" Corvino: {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}

The {8-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{a-Hearts} flop gave Gera a gutshot straight draw but neither the {9-Hearts} turn nor {9-Spades} river completed it.

With that, Corvino eliminated Gera in 25th place for $3,875.

Don't Miss the Feature "WSOP History: An Oral History of ChipTic"

ChipTic
ChipTic

At the 2012 World Series of Poker, a shiny new product received its public unveiling. Players and fans the world over were introduced to a program with revolutionary potential. It could track the chip ebbs and flows of every player in a tournament while also serving as the back end operating system to run said tournament. It promised the ability to change the way poker tournaments were followed, with players and fans interacting at the stroke of a few keys.

That product was ChipTic. And it proved to be a colossal failure.

This is the two-part oral history of ChipTic, from those who experienced it first-hand and witnessed that failure — three former employees, two members of WSOP staff, and two poker media members who watched it implode.
