Nice reading about everyone winning their bracelets and the cash to go along with it. Damn, sure would be fun to just hang out during this time and be able to play in a couple events. I know that would cost a bundle in itself, but the memory would be worth it.

I don't remember hearing about Kristen Bicknell but she must have played well at the Women's Tourney tables. It would be nice to see her going for other events. After all, she had Amanda Baker doing company for her at the final table and it doesn't seem like she was afrraid of that.

Wow, to finish runner up three times he must have thought that his chance of ever winning a bracelet had gone. So a very big congratulations to him for hanging on in there and determination saw him through in the end
