partypoker announces a new sponsorship deal with professional poker player Kristen Bicknell. The new addition to Team partypoker plays primarily online but frequents the live circuit including the most recent partypoker Million North America at Playground Poker Club.
Despite not being a regular on the live circuit in recent years, Kristen has had a string of impressive results, including winning two WSOP bracelets in the 2016 $ 1,500 No Limit Hold’em Bounty for her best live cash of over $290,000 and in the 2013 $ 1,000 No Limit Hold’em – Ladies Championships. Bicknell joins partypoker and will help grow the Canadian poker community. She will listen to feedback to help partypoker optimise both live and online poker for the Canadian poker market.
At time of writing, Bicknell is ranked fourth in the world in the female Global Poker Index rankings and currently occupies fourth place in the 2017 Player of the Year standings.
Managing Director of partypoker Tom Waters said: “We have been looking to add a Canadian poker pro to our team for some time and I’m delighted that we have been able to appoint Kristen. I want to ensure that we are listening to players in the local communities and having such a great, personable individual like Kristen on board gives players the opportunity to pass on their feedback directly. It is a pleasure to have Kristen join partypoker. She is a well-respected in the industry and has some extremely impressive online cashes. I look forward to see Kristen playing online on partypoker and also on the partypoker LIVE circuit this year.”
partypoker sponsored pro Kristen Bicknell said: “I have been watching what partypoker have been doing for the last year and as a regular online player I have appreciated the progress they’ve made. It was a no brainer for me when Tom asked me to join the team and help them on this journey to make the site and the live circuit better for the players. I recently played in both MILLIONS at Dusk Till Dawn and partypoker North America at Playground, so I got to see first-hand the experience players were getting on and off the felt at two great poker clubs! I am excited to first play in the WSOP with my new partypoker patch and then get back to Canada to grind online.”
