Three $10,000 buy-in events were held from Dec. 10-12 as part of the 2020 Wynn High Rollers series, with several big names securing cashes in the high-stakes tournaments.

Alex Foxen took home $75,600 and 150 Card Player Player of the Year points as the runner-up in this event. This was Foxen’s eighth final-table finish of the year, and it was enough to see him climb into 7th place in the 2020 POY race, which is sponsored by Global Poker.
