Kristen Bicknell may become Player of the Year for the third time in a row
PartyPoker Ambassador Kristen Bicknell won GPI Player of the Year title twice in the past two years. The British poker player isn’t going to make an exception this year and she aims to get the third title.
Bicknell had been taking the lead in female GPI ranking throughout 2019. Maria Ho is just about the only one who can prevent Kristen Bicknell from becoming the best player for the third consecutive year.
Maria Ho is second in the ranking, but the gap of 800 points remains between poker players. This handicap may be enough for Bicknell to hold the leadership.
