It was an interesting night on the SCOOP tables for two of Twitch poker’s favourite sons, Jaime Staples and Lex Veldhuis. While neither have yet to have a huge score, Lex was through to three Day Twos in SCOOP events yesterday including the $2,100 High Roller [Medium], with over $200,000 for the winner.

With just 35 players coming back for Day Two and Lex with a ton of chips, the excitement on his Twitch channel was set to super-hype. And then it all went wrong. Lex ran terribly, losing pot after pot before eventually finishing in a disappointing 25th place for $8,359.
As if that wasn’t enough, he was then mercilessly trolled by his very own sponsor – PokerStars. Watch the black comedy unfold for the Dutchman right here:
Today was a nightmare. Ran icecold in all day 2's. Grinded my ass off for 11 hours though and was able to squeek out a day 2 in the $215 6-max. This was the most insane needle after busting the 2k: https://t.co/eSOsoA21C3

Elsewhere, Jaime Staples took time out of his grind to give us a mid-day report on what has been “a crazy day on the felt so far”;
