Stadium Series success for Lex
Sundays streams are always busy for the biggest poker streamer in the business, Lex Veldhuis. But this past Sunday was especially hectic.
Not only did Lex reach Day 2 of the Sunday Million (Find out how that went here) he also made the final table of the 09-H $1,050 Stadium Series NLHE event.
He’d ultimately finish in sixth place for $21,712, following a string of brutal hands including the chop below.
Pretty sick stream! 6th in the $1050 Stadium for $22k. Pretty brutal hands to finish it out, but not bad for a tournament I almost skipped!

Cards-up coverage begins
Lex isn’t the only big-name player to have reached a Stadium Series final table.
We’ve also seen plenty of world-class crushers — including Mikita “Fish2013” Badziakouski and Conor “1_conor_b_1” Beresford to name just a couple — make the final nine in different events.
And now, thanks to the PokerStars, we get to peek behind the curtain and watch them play with cards-up coverage.
With commentary from James Hartigan and Joe Stapleton, as well as special guests including Sam “SamSquid” Grafton and Benjamin “Spraggy” Spragg, the final tables of each high heat will be broadcast on the PokerStars Twitch channel.
Don’t miss out on cards-up action – follow the PokerStars Twitch channel now so you’ll be notified when they go live.
Super Tuesday for Fintan
What’s your best poker session ever?
While Fintan “easywithaces” Hand himself probably wouldn’t rank his Tuesday session as one of his best (the man won a Spring Championship of Online Poker title, after all) it would most likely be up for there for any of the rest of us.
Fintan kicked off his session with a Hot $162 win for $3,500.
Easy game. $3.5k gurwan then. pic.twitter.com/9aWm7KXOG2

He then finished third in the $215 Bounty Builder and got another third in the Big $109.
Not too shabby.

Shower rangers? It’s not bad, y’know.
Not arsed with branded community names, keep your gimmicks to yourself.
You wonder why I can't go 24 hours without moaning about something, it's because of people like YOU. https://t.co/QAx4mAaUgB

I have a shot at some money tomorrow morning in day 2 of the 500 stadium series weekly final with $157,00 for the win. It will start at 8 am PST tomorrow so I will set my alarm early and make sure I am mentally prepared to be on my A-game #bink #day2 #poker pic.twitter.com/LKrZQuNfCt
