Lex Live isn’t your typical poker festival. There’s poker to be played, sure, but it’s what happens away from the felt which really matters to this community.
Take last night, for example.
Lex Veldhuis and PokerStars hired The Bat and Ball in Westfield Stratford City, directly opposite the Aspers Casino, and invited everyone from Lex Live 2 to get together, hang out, drink, play ping pong, eat, drink, shoot some pool, drink, battle at beer pong, and drink.
And did we mention the open bar?
Everyone was there, from PokerStars Ambassadors to Twitch viewers, casino staff and even, *ahem*, certain members of the poker media.
When it was Fintan Hand’s turn on the ping pong tables, he got the band back together, teaming up with winner of the FU Flip, Spraggy.
There will have been some sore heads this morning. That’s a given.
But it was worth it.
If you’re thinking of coming to the next Lex Live stop, we urge you to make the trip. If you still need convincing, we’ll let ‘DAMMO_23’ have the last word.
“Seriously. If anyone is on the fence about Lex Live in the future, just do it. It’s the greatest.”
