Alex Foxen’s Revenge Attempt Against Phil Hellmuth Fails Miserably!


Remember about a year ago, Phil Hellmuth beat Alex Foxen at the US Poker Open (USPO) 2022 with a Q4o hand that left everyone amazed?! Well, he is Phil Hellmuth, the 16-time World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winner! He played a not-so-desirable hand like Q4o with class and even won the pot. 

But guess what? Jump to US Poker Open 2023, the Poker Gods decided to be a little notorious, and how! At a recent event of the ongoing US Poker Open series, Hellmuth and Foxen were again up against each other on the final table, and this time, it was Foxen who was dealt the same hand – Q4o. There was no way Foxen was leaving this opportunity of seeking revenge by beating his opponent with the same hole cards. Here’s how the hand played out!

Phil Hellmuth Vs. Alex Foxen – The Q4o Battle

At the final table of USPO #8 – $26,000 No-Limit Hold’em, the two pros got into a battle of revenge. Hellmuth sat with AKo, but little did he know that his opponent was dealt the same hand that the 16-time WSOP bracelet winner had previously used to bust him. Having a strong hand, Hellmuth bet 110,000 preflop and was called by Foxen. The flop opened to 7 5 T , and Foxen pushed his remaining stack onto the table; Hellmuth called. He then flipped his Q4o hand with a slight grin on his face. Hellmuth was clearly excited to see the hand. The turn and river brought K 8 , which sent Foxen packing. His attempt to seek the perfect revenge from Phil Hellmuth was shattered as he exited the FT, taking the sixth place.

Well, this was just another incident where Hellmuth proved that he is a true master of his skill. We agree! One doesn’t become the highest number of WSOP bracelet winner just like that! And if it’s ‘The Poker Brat’ against you, you better be careful who you mess with.
