Re: Lex Veldhuis

One tournament win doesn't change anything. You need to judge results over a much larger sample size. And the facts are clear - when we view the larger sample size, he is a clear losing player.

Obviously he more than covers these losses with his twitch stream revenue + pokerstars sponsorship, so I'm sure he does well for himself overall. But the fact remains he does not beat the stakes he plays.

Re: Lex Veldhuis

A person doesnt have to hate Lex to recognize that he is a losing player.
Im happy for him and hopefully his streams will continue to be fun for a longer time with the influx of cash.

Even with those 2 big scores im not sure that he is a favorite to end the
year in profit.

Re: Lex Veldhuis

He plays a lot lower nowadays fwiw and i think he beats those stakes. Mostly under 100 bucks tournies and as long as he keeps it that way, i think he'll definitely end up in green.

^^ Indeed. His current daily buyins are about the same as what he used to spend on the BB High Roller alone.

Re: Lex Veldhuis

Wasn't lex a while back primarily a cash game play? I recalled this a long time ago. Didn't he multitable like mostly 2/4 and 3/6 and some 5/10nl all the way back then? By this i meant like before BF.


Is there a reason he doesn't play cash games now? I assume he probably wouldn't be a winner at 200nl now and that is why he mostly plays mtt?


Also im curious but do most agree he is not a winning player? When i watch his youtube videos of him doing stream, he doesn't seem like he knows exactly what is the right play.

Re: Lex Veldhuis

yeah, he was a cash game player pre-bf, made supernova elite. games passed him by and he switched to tournaments. he barely even beats low stakes tournaments. definitely -ev in the higher buy ins. as for cash, i'm guessing he wouldn't be able to beat even 100nl now.

this is what happens when you don't study and work on your game. the game has got much tougher over the years and most pros from 8-10 years ago weren't able to keep up.

Re: Lex Veldhuis

No, he switched from NL to PLO long time ago. There never was a transition from NL cash to tournaments. Eventually he was a PLOz500 reg and did pretty good at that stake. Then he decided to start his Twitch stream and with that decision he also started playing tournaments because he thinks tournys are a better format to stream than cash.

Has nothing to do with "the game passing him by".

Your close to being correct.

He actually talked about this very subject on stream today and the reason he Streams MTT's and not cash is - Quote: "Because that's what the majority of my viewers wan't to see. If the majority wanted to see me stream cash games, I would play and stream cash games".

Really ?

Seems reasonable enough to me to state that he doesn't do well at the highest stakes, that he's mostly a preflop player, that he hides his results to maintain his cred' to get viewers and people buying parts of him (which is morally dubious btw). He's obviously not busto though, PS money and stream money is good money. Let's just not pretend he's a MTT beast is all.

If you disagree with that you can feel free to enlighten us.

Re: Lex Veldhuis

You seem to have real difficulties when it comes to make your point. "lol u cryin", "u ain't bright ", "get a life" and bad 2010 memes aren't making you come off that well. It's not helping your point either.

Yes, Lex used to be a good CG player. Once uppon a time. Not sure how new you are, but the games got so much harder over the last decade. And "CG back then" has nothing to do with the fact that these days he pretty much refuses to take the play postflop when playing MTTs (even deepstacked). That doesn't change the fact that he's hiding his results either.

I stand by what I said: he's not making a living playing poker, he's making a (probably good) living rep'ing PS and streaming. To achieve that, he needs to pretend he does a lot better than he really does, though.

Not sure why you're so emotionally invested when it comes to Lex. He's not exactly the first person making a buck streaming and pretending he's something he's not really. But it's only fair for me to be real about it.
