The US-domestic portion of the WSOP Online series picked up steam in recent days with Kristen Foxen and Calvin Anderson logging notable achievements. Foxen became the first female four-time bracelet winner in WSOP history by winning Event #6, $888 NLH Crazy 8's, while Anderson became the first double-bracelet winner of the series with wins in Event #4, $1,000 PLO 6-Max and Event #7, $5,300 NLH Super High Roller 6-Max.

The two wins also pushed Anderson to the four-career-bracelet plateau alongside Foxen, while another recent bracelet tourney, Event #5, $500 NLH Deepstack, went to Lingkun “CN_23” Lu. The bracelet win was the first for Lu, who is participating in the series on's NV/NJ from New Jersey

Kristen Foxen breaks four-way tie

Foxen, playing as "krissyb24", moved out of a previous four-way tie with Nani Dollison, Barbara Enright, and Vanessa Selbst for the most bracelets won by a woman in WSOP history. Foxen, formerly known as Kristen Bicknell before marrying Alex Foxen and becoming half of one of the foremost power couples in poker, collected her second win in an online-bracelet event here, matching her two live-event bracelet wins in 2013 and 2016.

In the Crazy 8's tourney, Foxen topped a 492-entry field to earn a $92,141.76 winner's payday, the largest share of a $393,600 prize pool.

The final-table results in Event #6 were as follows:

  1. Kristen "krissyb24" Foxen - $92,142
  2. John "Relevancy" Ripnick - $57,190
  3. Dylan "Kidnapper" Destefano - $38,888
  4. Ryan "whosyourdodd" Dodd - $26,922
  5. Adam "misterblue" Saven - $19,050
  6. Matt "RubberFist" Stout - $13,737
  7. Ian “ApokerJoker2” Steinman - $10,076
  8. Jonathan "stoebdaddy" Stoeber - $7,557

Calvin Anderson lands the double

Meanwhile, Calvin Anderson earned his third and fourth career WSOP bracelets with the twin wins in Events #4 and #7, and in Event #7, he also blocked Foxen, who finished fourth there, from becoming the first double-bracelet winner of the series herself. Like Foxen, Anderson has now collected two of his four WSOP bracelets in online events.

In Event #4, $1,000 PLO 6-Max, Anderson topped a 113-entry field to earn $49,782 in a tourney that offered a $195,298 prize pool, and in Event #7, he bested a 101-entry field to earn another $141,400. The six-player finale in Event #7 featured plenty of star power. Besides Anderson, who played as "projector52" and Foxen, Anthony "heheh" Zinno finshed as the runner-up, Jesse "Dangerous22" took third, former POY Krista "Pollux" Gifford ended up in fifth, and Daniel "DNegs" Negreanu finished sixth.

The final-table results in Event #7 were as follows:

  1. Calvin "projector22" Anderson - $141,400
  2. Anthony "heheh" Zinno - $94,435
  3. Jesse "Dangerous22" Lonis - $66,660
  4. Kristen "krissyb24" Foxen - $48,480
  5. Krista "Pollux" Gifford - $35,350
  6. Daniel "DNegs" Negreanu - $26,512

Lingkun Lu's win in Event #5 came in the second-largest event by participation so far in the young series. Lu outlasted 515 entrants to secure the win in the Deepstack event, earning $53,011.26 and his debut bracelet. The event built a $232,200 prize pool.
