Posted On 01 Mar, 2018 0

American poker player Alex Foxen has just recorded the second largest live winnings of his poker career so far, by winning the 2018 L.A. Poker Classic Rockstar Energy $25,000 High Roller. The event was part of the WPT LA Poker Classic, one of the stops of Season XVI of the WPT Main Tour, played at The Commerce Hotel & Casino.

The series began on 24th February and while the final day of the Main Event is currently taking place, we have the result of the $25,000 buy-in high roller. Alex Foxen is said to be one of the rising stars in US poker and he recorded a win of $424,625 for first place, after he powered through a field of 50 entries.

His best live cash is $1,134,202 that he picked up for a 2nd place finish at the WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic, about 3 months ago. He has now taken his total live earnings to over $2.6 million. Coming back to this high roller tournament, Foxen beat big names like Nick Petrangelo, Isaac Baron and Eli Berg on the final table.

He had a remarkable run, eliminating all but one of his opponents on the final table, including the experienced Nick Petrangelo in heads up, who has over $10 million in live poker earnings. Petrangelo came into heads up down 1:7 in chip stacks and it wasn't long before Foxen claimed the title, with his two-pairs beating Petrangelo's 4-pair.

The final table just took a couple of hours and this stylish 26-year old player could certainly be one to watch out for in the future. Final results:

  1. Alex Foxen - $424,625
  2. Nick Petrangelo - $283,250
  3. Maria Ho - $188,875
  4. Sam Panzica - $131,000
  5. Eli Berg - $94,625
  6. Isaac Baron - $71,325
