Kristen Bicknell Keeps Lead Of GPI Ladies Rankings In 2019
The Ladies Global Poker Index Report lists the ranking of female poker players from all around the world. The list is updated on the third Thursday of every month and is closely watched by female poker players as well as poker fans as it gives them an idea as to who is dominating the female poker circuit.
Kristen Bicknell closed 2018 on a high winning the GPI Ladies Player of the Year award for the second year in a row. She has started 2019 on a strong note as she is currently sitting at the top of 2019 GPI female poker list as well. Bicknell is also ranked in 12th spot for the overall Global Poker Index standings and she takes the 8th spot in the overall Player of the Year rankings.
Bicknell has done well for herself during the first couple of months in 2019. She placed fifth in the recently concluded $25K no-limit Hold’em event at the US Poker Open. She also clinched the 11th spot out of 1,039 entries at the inaugural PokerStars $25K PSPC. She walked away $328,500 in prize money and 410.92 GPI points to start the year. Bicknell has major goals as she wants to hit a 7 figure payout and if she continues her good run of form, 2019 might just be the year she does it!
Some Of The Other Top Female Players
Sosia Jiang, from New Zealand, is currently behind Bicknell on the Female GPI rankings. She took the 11th place in a field of 151 players at the A$25K Challenge during the 2019 Aussie Millions. Jiang was also remarkable at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure and also finished in 28th spot at the 2019 PSPC.
Canadian Kelly Becker is ranked No. 3 behind Bicknell and Jiang. Just last month, she was able to grab three PCA cashes. In one of these, she was able to place 5th in a $10K no-limit Hold’em KO turbo. This event saw a total of 94 players take part and was eventually won by Rainer Kempe.
Kristen Bicknell may not be giving up her seat anytime soon as her GPI POY Score is at 1,070.17. Jiang, who sits at No. 2, is only at 786.36. The same is true for her lead in the Overall Ladies GPI Top Ten list as she has a wide margin over Maria Ho and Maria Lampropulos who are both ranked 2 and 3, respectively.
