Alex Foxen Wins $250k WSOP High Roller While Ivey Makes 4th Final Table

Alex Foxen Wins $250k WSOP High Roller While Ivey Makes 4th Final Table

The most expensive event of this year’s WSOP is in the books – the $250,000 High Roller finished this weekend and Alex Foxen, who dominated the final table and took down the event, won his first bracelet and more than $4.5 million in prize money. Phil Ivey made yet another final table in this event as he finished in 7th place.

The most expensive super high roller tournament of the WSOP attracted a total of 56 entries and they played for almost $14 million over 13 days.

Daniel Negreanu Loses it After Bad Beat

The first headliner of this tournament was Daniel Negreanu who fired two bullets in this event and busted during the second day against David Peters. Negreanu, who was vlogging the event was all-in with T-T against Peter’s Q-T-suited before the flop. Peters rivered a runner-runner-flush to send Negreanu packing and the Canadian lost his cool, throwing his vlogging equipment across the room.

PokerNews got this incident on video:

Daniel Negreanu, who is chasing his seventh bracelet and was WSOP Player Of The Year twice already, remains unlucky during this WSOP. So far he has not reached a single final table and is down almost $1m for this World Series of Poker.

Ivey Makes Yet Another Final Table

Meanwhile, Phil Ivey is crushing at the WSOP tables this year. After finishing 2nd in the $100k High Roller he finished 7th in this event and made his 4th final table this WSOP.

In the $250k High Roller Ivey was eliminated on day 3 when we shoved all-in with Q-J for 10 big blinds and was called by Brandon Seven with A-Q and didn’t get any help on the board. He took home almost $600k.´

Alex Foxen Dominated the Final Table

The tournament was headlined by Alex Foxen who began the third and final day as the clear chip leader. He managed to turn this lead into a seemingly easy victory. With six players left, Foxen already had almost half of the chips in play. Brandon Steven briefly came close to catching up, but in a pivotal hand Foxen won more than half of Steven's stack:

Steven opened from the button and Foxen three-bet from the small blind. The flop came down 10 6 2 and Foxen continued for half pot and Steven called. The turn brought the 10 and again Foxen fired a half pot bet and again Steven called. The 9 on the river didn’t seem to change much and now Foxen checked. Subsequently, Steven quickly fired a barrel worth one third of the pot. Foxen needed some time but eventually called. He turned over 9 8 for a rivered pair. This pair was good enough as Steven was air-balling with A 10 .

After that hand, Foxen had a commanding lead against his two remaining opponents and shortly afterward he eliminated Chris Hunichen with Q-3 against A-7-suited with two pair against top pair. A few hands later Brandon Steven was all-in with 5-2 on a Q-5-2 flop against Alex Foxen who only had top pair with Q-T. But Foxen rivered a better two pair as turn and river fell K-T.

This win is Alex Foxen’s first bracelet and he was more than delighted: “It really means a lot to me. It’s kind of been a monkey on the back. I’ve always wanted a bracelet. I’ve had some close spots and always been disappointed. This feels like a really special one to get my first in. To me, what means the most is the consistent performance at the highest stakes. This is one of those, so it feels really good.”
