Kristen Bicknell still leads both the 2018 Ladies Player of the Year race and the ladies overall GPI rankings. She recently collected 182.48 more GPI points in the partypoker WPT Montreal C$10,300 High Roller for finishing in sixth place out of 97 runners for a payday of C$48,000 ($36,612).

That finish has helped Bicknell extend her lead over Maria Lampropulos in both races by a small margin. Amazingly, Bicknell’s partner Alex Foxen now leads the overall POY and GPI rankings, providing further fodder for their “poker power couple” designation.
