The long-time poker pro continues to shine at the ongoing poker tournament series
This first edition of the Poker Masters Online has provided nothing but exciting competition among the best pro players in the world. Things can change easily in just one day of competition; case in point, Pauli Ayras is no longer leading the purple jacket leaderboard. Alex Foxen did not win any events during yesterday’s session, but he did make it to the final table, collecting enough points to put him in second place of the race. Event #21 had Dan Smith as the winner, and Sebastian Lewin took the title at Event #22.
Foxen had a great run, finishing fourth in the $25,500 buy-in, $1 Million GTD (NLH 8-max) event for which he collected a $141,750 prize. Event #22, the $10,300 buy-in with $500K GTD (NLH, 6-Max), had Foxen finish in second place and taking another $150,150 in cash.
The $25,000 buy-in event registered 63 entries for a total prize pool of $1.575 million, $511,875 of which was for the first-place winner. The final heads-up of this event had Smith battling Artur Martirosian and the latter finished second to take home $346,500 and a bonus – he collected 208 points in the Championship Leaderboard race for a total of 798, which launched him straight to the first place with only eight events left.
The second event of the day saw Lewin win $240,860.62. This was the first cash out he had during the Poker Masters Online after the final heads-up found him up against Foxen, who ended up in second place. Third place was for Alexandros Kolonias, who took home $92,400.
