Kristen Bicknell

On a flop of {7-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}, Kristen Bicknell and Ali Tariq each put 250,000 into the pot that already had over 200,000 in it. The {k-Clubs} landed on the turn and Bicknell checked from middle position. Tariq fired out a bet of 350,000 in the cutoff and Bicknell called.

The river brought the {a-Spades} and Bicknell checked again. Tariq slid in a bet of 635,000, nearly his whole stack. Bicknell cringed her face a bit and gave it some thought but decided to lay her hand down.

Just a couple of hands later, Bicknell got all of her 700,000 chips in the middle with {a-}{k-} against Manig Loeser with {q-}{q-} and Jack Salter with {a-}{10-}. Bicknell spiked a king on the flop and held on for a triple up.
