Kristen “Krissyb24” Bicknell is the number one ranked live poker tournament player in the world, but she’s no slouch in the online arena either. Only last week, Bicknell won $46,000 from a POWERFEST event, yesterday she twice came close to winning another title.
POWERFEST #185-HR: $200K Gtd 8-Max PKO
Bicknell was one of 129 players who ponied up $2,100 to compete in the POWERFEST #185-HR: $200K Gtd 8-Max PKO event.
Everything was going swimmingly and Bicknell navigated her way to the final table.
“Toppairlover” busted in eighth for $4,138 plus $2,756 worth of bounties. “I LOVE BREW” was the next to fall. “mbnlfg” and “aaaaaaaaaaaa” joined those two players on the sidelines, the latter walking away with a prize worth in excess of $12,000.
The disaster struck and Bicknell busted in fourth place. This latest deep run saw Bicknell collect a combined $17,566.
“MoStack” was the penultimate elimination and their exit left “ElCabanero” and “WatchMeDance” fight it out for the title. WatchMeDance has been hitting final table left, right, and centre and managed to go all the way this time. First-place yielded $22,775 plus a quite ridiculous $56,716 worth of bounties!

POWERFEST #188-HR: $100K Gtd 6-Max PKO Fast
Bicknell also ran deep in the $1,050 POWERFEST #188-HR: $100K Gtd 6-Max PKO Fast but had to make do with a 10th place finish worth a combined $3,423. Getting to the final two tables of this stellar field is some achievement in its won right.
Any o the six finalists would have made a worthy champion. You’ll no doubt recognise the names of those finalists if you’re a regular reader of the partypoker blog.
“PunchlineEnBata”, “NewYorkyJimmy” and “Incognitigno” fell in succession before another regular in “mararthur1” ran out of steam to exit in third-place, a finish worth $8,446 plus $2,860 from the bounty prize pool.
“Me6ka” and “Tornad0toni” fought it out heads-up for the title and the lion’s share of the prize money. Tornad0toni blew away his opponent and scooped the $31,748 (including bounties) prize for himself, leaving Me6ka to bank a combined $21,757.
POWERFEST #183-HR: $50K Gtd PLO 6-Max PKO
There are few people who can match Joni “JJouhki” Jouhkimainen for pot-limit Omaha prowess. He’s been tearing apart the biggest buy-in PLO events so far and almost got his hands on yet another top prize.
Jouhkimainen entered the POWERFEST #183-HR: $50K Gtd PLO 6-Max PKO and looked set to go all the way once again. That was until his tournament came to an abrupt end in third place. This saw our flying Finn pad his bankroll with $5,464 from the main prize pool and $2,625 from the bounty prize pool.
Our hero’s exit in third left “trustnobody_99” and “DR.Summer69” as the only players in the hunt for top spot. That went to DR.Summer69 who scooped $25,257, leaving trustnobody_99 to walk away with an $11,747 consolation prize.
