After a flop of QdJs7h, the big blind checked, Kristen Bicknell bet 5,000 from middle position, and the big blind called.

The turn card was the Kh, the big blind bet 12,000, and Bicknell called.

The river card was the 9h, the big blind bet 20,000, and Bicknell asked to see the big blind’s remaining stack. (He had about 21K behind his 20K bet.)

Bicknell called, and the big blind showed 8d7c for a pair of sevens, and Bicknell turned over Ah10d to win the pot with an ace-high straight.

Kristen Bicknell  –  143,000  (72 bb)
