Yesterday saw another day of fun on Lex Veldhuis’ Twitch channel as a couple more Lex Not Live events played out, awarding a trophy to both champs.
The day’s action (Wednesday 22 April) kicked off with a $22 Progressive KO Mini Big Bounty, but there was nothing “mini” about it when the $10K guarantee swelled to a $33,840 prize pool after 1,692 total entries.
The money was split between the final 287 players, one of whom was Lex Veldhuis himself, who finished in 75th for $29.89 plus $134.38 in bounties. “I’m going to fire maximum bullets,” Lex said on stream, although he only needed one. “I want to win my tournaments.”
Alas, he didn’t, but Germany’s “check-me83” took it down (after four bullets) for a massive $2,561 plus $1,455 in bounties.
Lex and his community then took another shot in the $16.50 Heads-Up Zoom Turbo Progressive Total Knockout, a fun format which sees no regular payouts, only bounties. The $10K guarantee was again smashed, this time reaching $21,447 after 1,459 total entries.
The fast-paced action of a Zoom tournament meant this one was wrapped up in just under four hours. Greece’s “v4GG3” came out on top, winning $2,172 for their efforts.
As for the PokerStars Ambassadors, Lex, Georgina “GJReggie” James, Nick “OP-Poker Nick” Walsh and James “OP-Poker James” Mackenzie all won a couple of bounties each, but it was Tom “MajinBoob” Hayward who banked the most, finishing in 46th for $59.26.
