The most famous romantic couple in poker today is undoubtedly Alex Foxen and Kristen Foxen. However, it turns out that love can be put aside when you’re risking your life in a tournament.
American and Canadians are two of the most prominent professionals since. They are both players and married, they tend to play in the same games. This raises questions about possible collusion between the two men when they sat at the same table. But those doubts seemed to be put to rest during a recent PokerGO event.
Kristen Foxen just won the PokerGo Tour.
Just this week, Kristen won Event #5: $10,100 No-Limit Hold’em in the 2024 PGT Kickoff defeating Daniel Negreanu After. Before that happens, however, he must endure a final table showdown that is sure to be a topic of discussion at the next family dinner.
With only five players remaining, a hand was dealt to the Canadian who flopped her pair into three pair for the winDestroyed her husband’s pair of Aces.

This is perhaps the most important thing. This is certainly not the only direct confrontation a couple has experienced so far. Both are among the best professionals working today and will provide many more such moments in the future.
