- $40K Sunday for Lex Veldhuis
- Clips of the week
Lex Veldhuis put on a clinic on Sunday (Feb 6) with multiple deep runs and final tables throughout a near 12-hour stream.
First up was the Bounty Builder $215. Things were going well three-handed after this pot with pocket kings.
But stacks levelled out and Lex lost a flip to go out in third for $8,274.
All the while Lex was grinding the $530 Sunday Marathon and ran it all the way to third place for $4K.
Moreover, he had a deep run going in the Bounty Builder $44 and cruised to the final table.
As the tournament entered the business end, Lex eliminated the biggest bounty to take it down to three.
He kept up the momentum three-handed.
And he took it to heads-up after this sick river card.
A sick set-up ended it and Lex banked $18K for the win, having outlasted an enormous Sunday field of 4,453 entries.
Add up all of Lex’s cashes (which also included winning two $5,000 tickets in satellites) and it was a very profitable day for the Twitch poker boss.
$40k in cashes yesterday ($15k buy-ins) and as a cherry on top this Day 2 spot in the $530 Bounty.

TFW your hand is so strong you’re not sure what to do…
Wistern gets the win.
Three is the magic number.
Busting your own Main Event.
Pye gets the W.
The dancing curse.
Sometimes a five-minute break isn’t enough.
Nice win for peace&loove.
