Alex Foxen Earlier this week, Alex Foxen became the latest player to have his name scrubbed from the “Best Players Without a World Series of Poker Bracelet” list when he took down Event #50: $250,000 Super High Roller for a career-high score of $4,563,700 .
Foxen, who now has $26.5 million in Hendon Mob-reported earnings , followed the bracelet win with two deep runs in Online Event #6: $500 No Limit Hold’em Turbo Deepstack and Event #58: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better (8-Handed) to make him the latest PokerNews WSOP Player of the Week .
