When we hear the expression ‘poker couple,’ Alex Foxen and Kristen Bicknell automatically come to mind. How could they not after winning GPI’s Player of the Year and Female Player of the Year in 2018. partypoker LIVE, however, wonders if there are any hidden talent out there that could rival with the current Players of the Year, and put out a fun and refreshing promotion for MILLIONS North America at Playground: beat them at the Main Event and you will win a $12K package to MILLIONS Europe at King’s Resort, Rozvadov, Czech Republic!
How exactly do you need to beat them? Scoring will be done golf style, with finishing positions of each partner added up. The smallest total wins. You are part of a strong couple that can work together, show sportsmanship, and play good poker? Show it at MILLIONS North America!
Kristen Bicknell said: “King’s Resort have even offered Phil Laak and Jennifer Tilly return business flight tickets for both of them to Munich to take part in the Millions Europe in August if they win the battle in Montreal!”
“It will be interesting to see how many ‘couples’ enter. I say ‘couples’ as I expect with such value we might find out people have partners and preferences we never knew about! I’ve always wanted to win a main event in my home country, especially at Playground, so hopefully this is the time, which doesn’t make it an issue anyway!”
“Who is going to adjudicate whom is a couple? The decision rests with a special committee headed by Phil Sabbah of Playground so if Shaun Deeb decides to play the event in a dress with a male or female partner it will need signing off at the start!”
The $10,300 Main Event is held from May 21 to May 26. If you’re planning to buy in directly, or you already have a seat and you feel like your better half could help you win this, then you’re already halfway into the contest, and you can close the gap by putting your partner in one of the many Direct Satellites during the festival!
