When it comes to poker, Fox has tasted victory twice before on the live felt. Earlier this year in June, Fox won the $1,590 No-Limit Hold'em event at the Venetian Deep Stack Extravaganza III in Las Vegas for $87,192. His continued his summer run-good when he went on to win the Bellagio Cup VII $10,000 Main Event a month later for a whopping $669,692. France has also been kind to Fox as he placed 31st in the WPT Grand Prix de Paris just last month. In total, Fox's live tournament earnings are nearly $800,000.
