Twitch Poker celebrity and PokerStars Team Pro Lex Veldhuis will be hosting his first-ever live tournament series “Lex Live Spring Festival“ at the Grand Casino de Namur in Belgium. The series will be sponsored by PokerStars.
Taking place from March 27 to 31, the inaugural Lex Live will host half a dozen of low buy-in tournaments ranging from €60- €550, including a €225 buy-in Main Event boasting €100,000 guarantee.
A wide range of formats will be featured during the series including turbos, hyper turbos, PLO, as well as a High Roller event.
PokerStars will also be hosting online satellites to help players qualify for Lex Live starting this Sunday.
Over the past few years, Lex has grown to be one of the most successful poker streamers, streaming almost daily and attracting thousands of viewers. The Dutch poker pro has close to 150K viewers and gets hundreds of subscriptions daily.
Lex has won many big tournaments live in front of thousands of viewers including three back-to-back Sunday wins recently.
“When my community starting growing on Twitch, people started talking about having a meet-up where everyone could meet each other and hang out,” Lex explains. “It’s cool to be able to take the next step and strengthen the relationships.”
“We’re going to be playing poker. There are going to be some other activities, too, and we’re going to be hanging out at the bar. There will be some cool twists on some tournaments. People will recognize a lot from the stream in it. I just can’t wait for it, because I feel like over the past year the stream has grown so much it just deserves some kind of big event as well,” Lex said to PokerStars Blog.
