When one of the world’s best live tournament players takes down a highstakes online event for $170,515, the poker world sits up and takes notice – and Alex Foxen did just that recently when he scooped the Natural8 Sunday Blade $10k buy-in…

Foxen’s $3million+ online earnings may pale in relation to his more than $10milion in live paydays, but he certainly knows how to take click those buttons.

As the latest publication at solicitors.guru shows, the rise in online casino websites is huge and not only attracting Pro gamblers. Тhere are casinos that entertain all types of players out there.

Foxen, of course, is one of those high-level pros who only really gambles when he feels he has the best of it, playing out the heads-up battle despite the $65,000 difference between first and second spots and reaping the rewards.
