Lex Veldhuis grinds hard on SCOOP 2019
Popular Spring Championship of Online Poker returned back to PokerStars. It started on May 12 and runs until May 27. All players have a chance to win a part of the total prize pool (of all tournaments) which is equal to $115 000 000.
PokerStars Ambassador and Twitch streamer Lex Veldhuis decided to put all his strength on SCOOP this year. This is particularly evident in his schedule of playing:
The guy began his SCOOP journey with $215 PLO (6 max) tournament that included $250K guarantee. There were 992 entries and 546 re-entries; total prize pool - $307 600. The first day of the event lasted for 16 hours and Lex had all chances to win the tournament. The player showed great game and managed to finish the first day in the second position.
16 Hour stream - Day 2 $215 PLO with $46k up top. I have a gigantic stack. Continuing stream at 3:30 PM CEST Tomorrow eerrr today. Hope for a bink cause it was one of the more brutal Sundays. See you soon. pic.twitter.com/kLZL9zM8sP— LexVeldhuis (@RaSZi) 13 травня 2019 р.
However, having a massive stack Lex wasn’t able to become a winner. He eliminated in the 8th place and got only $3 741 for it. His fans noticed that he looked really tired on the stream. Seems the tight schedule manifests itself. A poker player from Russia who performed under the nafnaf_funny screen name won the given tourney and received $46 927 for finishing first.
Despite the streamer failed this event, many followers support Veldhuis and believe in him. We also wish the player good luck on the grind and let the force of Cardmates be with him next time!
