Lex Veldhuis wants you off his front lawn

It seems someone got Lex Veldhuis angry.

You see, Lex had a tournament named after him, the Lex Veldhuis Open, a $22 daily PLO 6-max turbo that had become something of his front lawn. It was his turf because he reached the final table of it three times in a week*, and the people in charge of these things figured it deserved a hat tip.

So when some guy then came along and metaphorically set up a deck chair on his lawn, Lex was understandably, well... how would you feel? I mean, next thing you know he'll be watching Lex's TV and drinking his beer.

So Lex has since set about getting rid of the nuisance (a nuisance by the way who deserves a little credit for reaching the final table three times) by trying to win those bragging rights back.

Once he does the Open, currently named after ROTL2635 of the UK (a.k.a. "the nuisance"), will revert to Lex's name, and he'll be able to relax again. And as with most things Lex does it's turning out to be a lot of fun, as you can see for yourself, like a neighbour from behind the curtains from across the street, by watching his Twitch channel, which is a great place to watch one of the best players in the game even when he doesn't have a grudge.

You can do that by watching his Twitch channel here. You can check out Lex Veldhuis's progress by finding tournament ROTL2635, a daily $22 PLO 6-max turbo in the PokerStars Lobby.

Of course, you're more than welcome to have a go at being the next nuisance.

NOTE: Lex aside, let's not forget the achievement by the way of ROTL2635, who finished fourth on the 28th Nov for $292.60, third on the 2nd Dec for $432.63 and second on the 4th Dec for $612.13.

* The original version of this article said that Lex and ROTL2635 had won the event three times. We actually meant they reached the final table three times, after all they're not Superman. And that's all you need to do to play your part in tilting Lex and get your own name in the tournament lobby in the process. If you do email support and we'll look into it.
