Lex Live is now in full swing here in Namur, Belgium, and last night saw the official welcome party take place in the Grand Casino bar.
The evening kicked off with a friendly €25 sit and go featuring Lex Veldhuis, Ben “Spraggy” Spragg, and members of Lex’s Twitch community including online satellite winner Sanne “Antim00n” Bombeek, Ben “TheBenMartin98” Martin, “TjennoE”, and the infamous moderator “Croaks”. Check back for our interview with “Croaks” later today.
It was “Zjoeri” who emerged victorious in the 18-player tournament though, banking €162 for his efforts and becoming the first winner at Lex Live.
When hundreds of players flooded in at 6pm for the start of Day 1B of the €225 Main Event (find out how that played out here) everyone headed to the bar for some on-the-house drinks, conversation, and a few laughs.
Name tags were worn (“PokerStars Blog” for us, Twitch handles for them), beers were drunk, and a lot of fun was had by all.
There might be some sore heads today, but there’s no rest for the wicked here at Lex Live. Tonight will not only see big numbers for the final two Day 1C flights but at 8pm there’s the €60 FU Friday Flip event; a turbo with 10-minute levels and a five big blind flip for every player once per level. It should provide some great entertainment.
That’s followed by the €225 Fast and Furious turbo at 9pm, a freezeout hyper turbo with 10-minute levels.
Yep. We’re really in full swing.
