Poker's Power Couple get heads-up in big MTT

Bicknell and Foxen are now probably the toughest couple in poker after an impressive 1-2 in Las Vegas.

In March Kristen Bicknell and William Alex Foxen made their claim for poker's biggest Power Couple when they won back-to-back High Roller events in Macau

Last night they went one better, getting heads-up in the same event in a $5,000 tournament of 178 players on the Mid Stakes Poker Tour:

Foxen won the event eventually for $239,000 with Bicknell taking down $200,000 for 2nd place, but it is highly probable that the trophy will be considered a joint achievement. 

Amazingly this is the 2nd time a couple has got heads-up together, as Ivan Luca and Maria Lambropoulos did the same thing in 2016. However, last night's result probably trumps that one by virtue of their previous back-to-back High Roller results. 

Now that all seems left is for them to win a Tag Team event together to complete the Poker Power Couple Triple Crown?

    Probably has to be careful of not doing too clear soft play when being in final table. But I would be bit surprised if there wasnt any.
