Following on from last night’s FU Friday Flip tournament, there was more fun to be had today at Lex Live in Namur.
Saturday afternoon saw Lex Veldhuis and his Twitch community take over the amazing Barnabeer bar in the city centre for a good old fashioned pub quiz. In this quiz, though, there was only one subject.
How well did his community really know the man they’ve spent hours railing, supporting, and interacting with? This was the best way to find out, and trust us when we tell you, these guys came prepared.
When it comes to the man himself, nobody knows Veldhuis better than his mother, who was in attendance. Veldhuis’s fiancee Myrthe was also taking part.
Benjamin “Spraggy” Spragg, Fintan “EasyWithAces” Hand, and Felix “xflixx” Schneiders were all in the house too, testing their knowledge. But in a way, they’d already won.
You see, midway through the quiz Veldhuis announced that the four players with the highest quiz score would be taking part in a private sit and go tomorrow, streamed live on Veldhuis’s Twitch channel. The event will be a tag-team tournament, with each winner paired up with one of the PokerStars Ambassadors. They can sub in and out whenever they wish.
And who were the winners?
1st – Sanne Bombeek (Antim00n)
2nd – Milko van Winden (Milkovw)
Tied 3rd Tjenno Eskes (TjennoE)
Tied 3rd – Ben Martin (TheBenMartin98)
Those four will be paired up with either Lex, Spraggy, Fintan or Felix tomorrow in a draw tomorrow. Players five through eight received a goodie bag for their efforts.
