Newlywed Foxen-Bicknell Score Success At WPT Seminole Hard Rock


The love story between poker pros Alex Foxen and Kristen Bicknell was nothing short of a match made in heaven. The two pros got married in the Sunshine state of Florida. However, unlike most newlyweds who head to their honeymoon, this poker couple went straight to the World Poker Tour (WPT) Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open.

These two lovebirds were spotted grinding on the live felts of the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open in Hollywood.

A Florida wedding

Foxen and Bicknell tied the knot at the luxurious Florida Keys which is a string of islands at the southern tip of the state. It was the perfect destination as Seminole Hard Rock was only one and a half-hour away. 

“We just had a nice little ceremony down in the Keys this past weekend. It was great. It was really nice. Close friends and family. Couldn’t be better,” said Foxen in an interview. The two took to social media to share a small snippet of their beautiful oceanside wedding. Everyone from the poker community like former British poker pro Liv Boeree, High Stakes Poker star Jennifer Tilly, were quick to congratulate them.

The timing of the wedding was also aligned with the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown. “The timing kind of worked out perfectly with the date that we picked for our wedding,” Bicknell said. “And we didn’t actually do this intentionally, but it was like, oh, we’re so close. So, it’s kind of a nice little thing to do after the wedding, anyway,” she further added.

Power couple

At Event #30: $1,100 Deep Stack No-Limit Hold’em, Bicknell found herself finishing on the final table in eighth place for $12,085. Foxen, who is a two-time WPT champion, also had an impressive finish in the Event #31: $50,000 Super High Roller. The poker pro was the runner-up for $515,587. Bicknell commented on her latest WPT performance. She said, “A good start.”  Foxen also shared his thoughts by saying, “So far so good, definitely. A few more good events left, and then hopefully continue to have a good series.”

Going For Glory

While talking about his strategy going into Day 1 of the Championship event, Foxen said that unlimited entry meant that “there was no incentive to pass on any spots that are good.” He further said, “So kind of just play a bunch of pots, hope to finish up with a lot of chips and just play. Poker is poker and taking it hand by hand is, I think, the best strategy.”

Foxen and Bicknell were not among the 300 players who survived Day 1a of the event. They were then spotted playing in the Day 1b flight. Later, Foxen was eliminated by Danny Panagatos. According to pokernews.com, Foxen was later seen buying back into the event and taking a seat next to Matt Berkey. Despite their best efforts, neither of them made it to Day 2 of the event. Currently, the two players have combined live earnings worth $27 million, according to Hendon Mob.

The WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown drew in a sizable 2,010 entries which makes the event the second biggest WPT Main Event in history. Players who survived Day 1b were 2019 WPT Player of the Year, Brian Altman, defending champion Brek Schutten, Chance Kornuth, Andrew ‘LuckyChewy’ Lichtenberger, Angelina Rich, and Cherish Andrews.
