Lex Veldhuis

Currently has the most viewers and most subs as a Twitch Poker streamer.

I personally love him because he doesnt hide his emotions. He just lets it all go, the good and the bad. The way he rekts idiots in chat sometimes is so ****ing funny.

And we can name him the winna of the thrilla!

Won a 109$ Hyper yesterday for 8.2k(!). Would love to see his graph, but he doesn't want to show because of his "Blow up Fridays". This legend is up heaps in June and July.

He`s certainly not the nicest guy, but he is dutch after all... most of them are dicks

But watching him play and listening to his reasoning is invaluable to a fish like me.

I don`t see how he is a racist, but I am white... and your name is some sort of bad joke about Osama Bin Laden, so u certainly have the moral high ground here.

He isnt racist but a chatter came in the other day and called him a racist. He got triggered and he quit shortly after.

ic, no doubt he is an impulsive guy but also a great player.
and that`s what its all about?

I love Spraggy for example but how the dude ever became a pokerstars pro is beyond me when you consider the guys who were part of Team Pro before Twitch was around.

Don't get the hype. Tried watching a bunch of times because people are always raving about the stream but it just doesn't do anything for me. Not particularly entertaining & not even that good of a player.

True. Although this is slightly less impressive when you realize that most of them average $15 tourneys & would get b1tch slapped at 50NL cash.

Gotta say, I do miss Doug Polk's streaming. Even though he was hesitant to give too much free advice on air, I learnt a fair bit just from watching him play.

Lex & Tonka (generous in explaining his thought process) are obviously v.good, but its strictly tourneys & my passion is still cashgames. How long can you really watch someone grind a tournament? Stacks are almost always shallow & hands barely ever make it past the flop. Once you've seen a few, you've seen em all. Doesnt get interesting for the viewer until at least the final 2 tables.

According to pro labs he's down 6 figures, is that right? And I don't get the no HUD thing because he hates maths.

Last time I seen him he was berating chat after going all in with very marginal hands, telling them it was the correct play and they're all too tight.

I don't get it.

Care to post a pic if you have one? Don't watch much of his stream but he seems to be getting big numbers and some hype so curious to see if he is a winning player or not. Six figures down in the games he plays sounds a lot though.

It mustn't have been pro labs as I can't see it any more, I think it could have been old data from years ago. It appears he's up 60k this year on sheduled tourns.

I don't get it.
There's lots of situation where it's correct to shove 50% or 80% of hands. Whenever a perfectly normal shove gets called and the hand loses, than the bigmouth results-oriented chatters who know nothing about poker speak up.

So not only has he lost a poker hand, or been knocked out of a tournament --- which is bad enough, he has to listen to people who know nothing about poker babble.

In poker tournaments you don't get wait for kings and aces.

HUDs are overrated for tournaments because stats when you're 150 big blinds deep and have no antes have nothing to do with stats where you have 12.5% antes and 10 big blinds.

With 243 posts how can you not be aware that lots of poker, most in fact, involves marginal situations? Calling a 30 big blind shove, when you have AQ and 25 big blinds is totally standard, and it's also completely marginal.

Re: Lex Veldhuis

I know you'll be pushing marginal hands in tourns but it seemed very loose at the time I was watching but I can't remember the hands. The chat love him so they weren't berating him because haters gonna hate, they wanted him to tighten up a little because they want to see him run deep.

I watched him again last night and he was a lot calmer and answering every question chat threw at him and was very enjoyable, I must have caught him at a bad time. I can see why he gets a lot of viewers because he plays a lot of hands. I think he said he'd played 80% of hands in the big tourn last night.

You can see that he's a fairly loose player because PPL has his early finishing at 35%. A lot of the tourn regs are in single figures or barely into double figures. But there's plenty of big winning players who go out early over a third of the time so he's in the go big or go home category. Which I guess is why he gets the big viewers.

He's sharkscope is locked but he hasn't opted out of PPL. They don't show everything but you can get an idea from the average buy in, return and games played. He's up quite a bit over the last 2 years so the stats I saw earlier were wrong.

I'll give him some more watching.

You can make a hud that shows how the player is playing with different stack sizes. So that statement is just your personal opinion.
