Re: Lex Veldhuis

True and I didn't even know that he advertises his "success" THAT hard, I just realised that at least 90% of his 5k viewers were convinced that they're watching (and investing into) a winning poker player. In that case it's completely disgusting and I really hope that some poker personality like Doug or Joey will take him "under investigation" one day and represent it to the wider audience.

I wasn't taking a side. Just seems like a lot of useless hate ITT.

If he would at least play roulette.

The problem is, he says"i print in this, buying action here is going to make you SO much money longterm its a GREAT deal" is where the problem is. Just because he sells at no markup doesnt mean its a good buy hes a a severe disadvantge in the thrill for example.
Just to be clear, I don't care much for Lex's stream(mostly cause it's crowded not because it's bad content).
But you guys sound so ridiculous. How can someone who publicly displays every single hand they play be scamming??? There is no player on earth that provides more evidence, good or bad, of how they play.
If you honestly think the world is(or even should be) full of investments where you can take peoples "word for it" and get rich, then you are delusional.

Seriously, take 10 mins to really think about why you hate him and why you need to spend so much time trying to convince others to hate him with you. Just maybe you'll come up with some ideas that will be useful your own growth and well being. I can guarantee no information you've provided here has benefited anyone.

Ridiculous and delusional? Looks like you described yourself quite accurately. Or you are just brainwashed like rest of his followers. He's encouraging people to invest into something that is highly -EV and claiming it's actually super +EV. That's how Ponzi schemes are being promoted. People are naive and fall for it so yes, I took my 10 mins and at least tried to encourage someone who is thinking of investing into him to think twice about it. Have a wonderful day!

Most watchers don't have the expertise to judge his play, hence the Thursday Thrill only has ~200 entrants i.e. They trust Lex who's misrepresenting himself.

And yes, the world is full of knowledgeable people exploiting unknowledgeable people, but that doesn't make it less immoral. Especially not if it's presented as 'giving back to the community'. All other pokerstreamers are a great example of how to handle this, they present selling their action as an oppourtinty to have a sweat or as a better gamble than at the casino. I've never heard any other streamers say anything close to 'you'll be printing money if you buy my action because the markup is so special' as Lex does.

I don't think you undestand what hate means. Hate means stuff like p0kercasual says about Polk. Hate means you go on a personal attack and rant about the guy. If you say he is selling shares based on false information that is not hating him. I just don't get it why people think that if you say something negative about the guy or don't agree with the masses you are a hater. And in the end what do you care if you don't even care about lex that much? I don't read threads about Negreanu because I couldn't care ratsass what people are saying about him. Or Hellmuth. Or Polk's except streamthreads. I don't waste my time on a subject I don't care like you seems to be doing. If anything that's sad and stupid.

And he binked big yesterday. Good start for the month let's see if he can keep it up. He won the 109 (?) last month and ended up losing for the month so kind of similar situation here. Can he turn it around of will he fall again?

Although you seem to be one of the only people here not fuelled by hatred, I still think you're missing the mark. Or at least you have a very rose coloured view of how the world works.
When you play the stock market, you can get a broker but you dam well better have some knowledge to make sure you aren't getting screwed. Same with investing in any business, it's your responsibility to do the research.

I understand "printing money" is misleading but I have heard many players use that term for 10 years. We all know there is no such thing when you are selling 1 or 2 or even 100 games.
You say casino's don't bait players with misleading slogans or advertising. My local casino's tagline is literally "where winners play" yet everyone there looks to be losing to me. This also after they were actually found to be under paying their customers. But I'm sure no other casino has had such an issue because they are all highly moral people looking to take honest peoples money without any misleading or attempts to make the customer think they will win.

Would be kind enough to show the posts that makes you believe everyone hates lex? Thx. And if you don't do you mind leaving the thread because you obv don't have anything so say about lex and his game. Thx again. You must have somethig better to do with your life than feeling bad for people on the internet right?

And let's take another example. If I say that a player on a team that I support is playing awful atm and he needs to be benched does it mean I hate him? If I say he needs to stop those fancyplays and focus more on the basics am I a hater now? And the player is a someone who I've been a fan in the past but now he is playing goddamn awful and hurts the team. Does it make a person automatically hater if he says something that another person disagrees with?

If you're unable to see it, I can't help you.

Thread is not here to discuss him selling action. You guys are Inc well within your rights to slay him, I just think it's sad. Don't fool yourselves into thinking you are "helping the community". You are trying to cut him down for reasons I don't know. My guess is hatred and jealousy

This thread is not here to discuss your opinions on lex. There are forums here for that and this is not it.
This thread is here to promote his stream not his selling action.
I posted in hopes that you'd realize you aren't helping anyone by posting here. Making other people look bad will never make you look good imo. The funny thing is, there is posts all over 2+2 where people are genuinely asking for help/advice and no one posts in those threads

Thread is not about his play or his selling action. Thread is here to promote his stream.
It's actually more like if you can't prove or show it then it's only in your head. And do you mind allso showing me the rules where it states that in these threads you are only allowed to promote the streams and not talk about the play or how he sells the action. Thx. And again if you can't bring anything else to the table than accusasions you can't prove then please move to another thread. Or you could allso make another thread where it's only allowed to say nice things about eachother.

To that selling action couldn't care less. Ain't buying that and if people are dum enough to (bit hars i know but still) believe the hype then let them buy. Ain't my money on the line. Most of these people are probably the same people who goes to the casino's that promotes "winners play here". But at the same time I get it that it might allso piss people off saying stuff like printing money. But do I tell them you are pathetic haters etc. No I do not. I don't care. If I comment about someones sayings it's when they are compeletely off. Like In Polks thread where people are saying he's losing the challenge when he is actually up money. That in my eyes is a hater. And a person that focuses only on commentating others comments is actually the sad person. Peace out etc.

Oh he pulls of the jealousy card. How original. I'm giving you one more chance to prove your points. If you can't prove it then it's only in your head and if anything is sad then that's really sad. After that point me to the rules where it says what you can and can not say in these threads. After that show me the threads that you are allowed to say this other stuff that in your mind is hate and jealous behaviour.

And where did you even come up with the helping community nonsense? Has anyone in this thread mentioned it even once before you? Don't think so. Then this people are seeking help stuff. How is that even remotely related to this thread? I don't post to strategy sections english ain't my 1st language and it's difficult to explain my thoughts and I have my own community I can talk with. If anyone asks something in the internet poker I'm allways answering if I can.

There were multiple people claiming they needed to post here to protect people from his scam... You obviously aren't really reading the posts ITT. ANd we get it... You don't like Doug Polk
I never said anyone was breaking rules I just said i think it's sad. Judging by the amount of responses from you, I've struck a chord. Stop trying to prove me wrong and do a little self reflection bud.

Re: Lex Veldhuis

Facts:
- Shipped the BB $33
- 2nd in the Big 109
- Went super deep in the Thursday Thrill
Cashed for around $15K and played what I would consider his best poker in a long time. Obvious the stress and panic attacks from earlier affected his poker play so the long vacation was needed. I consider Lex a big bro and seeing him reinvigorated and refreshed was awesome.

- 11 Hour stream
- Nearly 1500 subs
- Shy of 10k viewers
Pretty damn epic if you ask me. I don't want to hear about Lex being break-even or a losing tournament player. 0 markup on pokershares so people who want to support him or want to sweat him are going to clearly make money.

WCOOP is gonna be so sick. I'm stating for the record Lex is gonna scoop a win in one of the 2k tournies. Nobody is doing what he's doing when it comes to streaming poker on Twitch. I liked Carver, but even in his prime he couldn't hold a a candle to Lex. Lex legion less than three!

And still you manage to prove nothing. You are like a little child thinking if he says something multiple times it makes it true. And yeah might be true that people said stuff like that my bad really don't care and missed these posts.

And I never mentioned I don't like Polk I said that p0kercasual hates him. But again you are so obssessed with your opinions that you managed to get that wrong too. But like I said you are just a sad little boy pretending to be the good guy but you are not. And I'm not wasting any more time with you and your personal accusations (btw that's hate in my eyes) and adding you to my ignores. Peace out and try to live your life not caring what others say about people you don't even know. it might make your life just a little bit more enjoyable.

Oh and this : Stop trying to prove me wrong I really don't need to because you are doing it all by yourself. Again peace out.

Look bud, I don't owe you anything. I have made no accusastions ro personal attacks to anyone. I said this thread is filled with hate, which it is. If you can't see it, that's fine. I'm not going to go through and copy/paste it all because you will just continue to argue with me.
For the record, I never addressed you specifically in any way until you addressed me. The only person who's on a mission to "prove anyone wrong" is you. I just shared my opinion

Pokercasual is either lex himself, or one of the weirdest dudes I've ever witnessed. The man crush this guy has on him is beyond imaginable. Maybe go outside or something for a day. Play in the park.
