If you’ve been reading along with our Lex Live 2 coverage, there’s one sentiment you’ve likely figured out: this thing is a whole lot of fun.
PokerStars streamer Georgina “GJReggie” James certainly agrees. We sat down for a quick chat on the festival’s penultimate day to see what the experience has been like for her, and her plans for the coming months.
PokerStars Blog: Hi GJReggie, how has Lex Live 2 been for you so far?
Georgina “GJReggie” James: It’s the first time I’ve met most of the other PokerStars Ambassadors, and then obviously loads of the community members too. It has been so much fun. I’ve been here for the whole time, immersing myself in the entire experience. It has been the best time. Just crazy, absolutely insane!

What’s it been like dabbling on the live felt?
I’ve played more poker than I’ve ever played before, and I got the chance to do some commentary which was really fun. It’s been an amazing experience. Props to Lex for organising such an amazing event!

Are you looking forward to getting back on stream, now that you can put a face to many of the names on Twitch?
I think it’s going to be really cool. I’ve met a lot of people from Lex’s community, and have inadvertently gained a lot of new followers. I’m still a relatively small streamer, so even here not a lot of people knew me. But now that I’ve spent so much time with people, it’s going to make the community closer and more tight-knit. We’ll have to see how it goes, but I think it’s going to be great. I can’t wait to attend the next Lex Live.
Having just seen your friend Tom “Predator410” Parsons win a Platinum Pass, do you think you’ll be going after a one yourself?
Yeah, it’s so sick that he won! I’ve wanted to play a bit more live poker general. It’s not something I do very often, even though there is a really good casino is Cardiff where I live. I’m going to try and organise a monthly meet-up, I think. Then I’m thinking of coming to the Moneymaker Tour stop in London for a shot at a Platinum Pass!
Congrats on the pass! Will definately be on the rail for this one. https://t.co/yisB59lbj8
