Kristen Bicknell played at the $3 000 WSOPC #3 final table
The WSOPC #3: $3 000 Deepstack No-Limit Hold'em Championship collected 504 entries, and participants competed for their share of a $1 436 400 prize pool. In the heads-up, the finalists struck a deal, according to which the winner received a payout of $244 000.
PartyPoker Ambassador Kristen Bicknell managed to reach the final table. Kristen played well but busted out in fifth place after she lost most of her stack in a three-way cooler with fours versus two overpairs.
The five finalists played for almost an hour before the tournament started drawing to a close. Bicknell received a $77 000 payout for fifth place, and then four players remained in the game.
For some time, each of the four players was in the lead in the number of chips, but at one point, Sosia "Aunty_Ninja" Jiang lost a big pot and left the game. The top 3 was eventually formed. First, Christian Jeppsson from Sweden knocked out the Lithuanian poker player Laurynas Levinskas, and then he defeated Daan Mulders from Holland.
For first place, Christian received $244 000 in prize money, while the tournament runner-up took $183 000. The overall final table results are as follows:
