Alex Foxen began as the chip leader, and he ended up with his first gold bracelet after five hours.  He also walked away with the $4,563,700 top prize, a new career-high.

"It really means a lot to me. It's kind of been a monkey on the back. I've always wanted a bracelet. I've had some close spots and always been disappointed … this feels like a really special one to get my first in," said Foxen, who was just one of three players at the final table without a bracelet. "To me, what means the most is consistent performance at the highest stakes. This is one of those, so it feels really good."

The Las Vegas-based Foxen has now won $26,502,130 in career live earnings.

It's all in the family.  He just married three-time bracelet winner Kristen Bicknell earlier this year.

"I'm extremely lucky I have an incredible wife and incredible support. It's something that can't be overstated honestly, the amount it helps to have someone at home that to the utmost extent understands what I'm going through on a day-to-day basis and is there to talk hands all the time, and just to help me through the difficult times too, because. I'm definitely not immune to tilt and emotion. Having someone like Krissy, I can't express how lucky I am."

Phil Ivey went deep once again at this year's WSOP but bowed out in 7th place.  He's $597,381 richer though, so no need to shed any tears.  So far, Ivey has cashed out in six events at this year's World Series of Poker, profiting just over $2 million.
