A very special live edition of the Poker in the Ears podcast was recorded yesterday at Lex Live 2, here at London’s Aspers Casino.
James Hartigan was in the house, while Joe Stapleton transmitted his voice using some crazy new technology. I think it’s called ‘internet’ or something.
The man of the moment, Lex Veldhuis, was this week’s guest, joining Hartigan on the mics in front of a warm crowd comprised of Lex’s Twitch community. Each of them knew a thing or two about the Lex, aka the Dutch Terminator, aka the Beaker, aka Alexander Veldhuis, but only one could be chosen to take part in ‘Superfan vs Stapes’.
That fan was well-known community member Sanne “Antim00n” Bombeek, a 29-year-old Emergency Room Nurse from Belgium, who lives close to Aalst. If you’ve ever chatted away during one of Lex’s streams, you’ll no doubt be familiar with her.
We first met her at the first Lex Live festival in Namur, Belgium, which took place back in March. We even typed up an interview with her, which you’ll find here.
She joined the boys onstage and proceeded to answer true or false questions that Lex had prepared about himself. From “Did I die my hair grey?” to “Was I ranked top 40 in the world at Starcraft?”, and even “Is Chris Moneymaker an asshole?”, both Bombeek and Stapes competed and only one could come out on top.
But you’ll have to listen to the podcast to find out who did.
