2018/2019 was quite a year for poker couple Kristen Bicknell and Alex Foxen with both winning their respective Global Poker Index (GPI) Awards for player of the year, the first time this has ever happened! Canadian partypoker ambassador Kristen was the creme de la creme of all female poker players while her boyfriend Alex took down the overall GPI Player of the Year title.

Both Kristen and Alex will be attending the partypoker LIVE Millions North America event at Playground Poker Club and taking part in the CAD$5 Million guaranteed CAD$10,000 + CAD$300 Main Event from 21 - 26 May. 

New partypoker LIVE Couples promotion

The question is, are there any more successful poker playing couples out there? partypoker LIVE intend to find out with a new unique promotion.

Here's how to take part, register as a couple for the CAD$10k Main and if you perform better than Kristen and Alex you win a €12k package to Millions Europe at King’s Resort in August. The scoring will be done golf style - the finishing positions of each partner will be added up and the lowest score wins!

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!”
