Alex Foxen won the $25,500 No-Limit Hold’em High Roller at the Lucky Hearts Poker Open (LHPO) at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel. Casino in Hollywood, Florida. The win netted the two-time GPI Player of the Year $426,025. This success came three days after his wife Kristen Foxen won a PokerGO Tour event in Las Vegas.
Kristen also performed well in South Florida. He finished fourth for $117,325, while Alex finished fifth for $40,000 in a tournament won by his wife.
The $25,000 High Roller Tournament, part of the Lucky Hearts Poker 2024 Open Series, attracted 50 participants, including several top professionals. One of those players was Kevin Rabichow, who led most of the race. However, he was unable to maintain his lead at the final table and ended up finishing in second place for $284,050.

Alex Foxen entered the final table with under 30 big blinds, but outlasted Justin Saliba in the early going, doubling his stack and leaving Saliba with crumbs. Soon after, Foxen officially eliminated him in fifth place ($80,275).
Even though Foxen doubled his stack to a sizable stack, Rabichow still had firm control of the final table. He extended his lead to over 170 BBs when he eliminated Kristen Foxen in fourth.
Rabichow, one of the best online poker players in the world, then eliminated Thomas Boivin in third place ($172,900) and went heads-up with Alex Foxen, who was certainly looking to avenge his wife.
The last hand was Foxen’s all-in, and the card was A A A 7 JX JX 4 9. After careful consideration, Rabichow decided to call with the last BB and looked for the hero of Q J to follow. This was a mistake. He was eventually eliminated in second place with a bonus of $284,050.
For the Foxes, this is their second home title of the year, in addition to eight final table appearances. The couple posed for a photo with their dog Riley on his 17th birthday.
