Stadium Series success for Lex

Sundays streams are always busy for the biggest poker streamer in the business, Lex Veldhuis. But this past Sunday was especially hectic.

Not only did Lex reach Day 2 of the Sunday Million (Find out how that went here) he also made the final table of the 09-H $1,050 Stadium Series NLHE event.

What made it even more special was that Lex hadn’t really planned on playing this particular event.

He’d ultimately finish in sixth place for $21,712, following a string of brutal hands including the chop below.


Cards-up coverage begins

Lex isn’t the only big-name player to have reached a Stadium Series final table.

We’ve also seen plenty of world-class crushers — including Mikita “Fish2013” Badziakouski and Conor “1_conor_b_1” Beresford to name just a couple — make the final nine in different events.

And now, thanks to the PokerStars, we get to peek behind the curtain and watch them play with cards-up coverage.

With commentary from James Hartigan and Joe Stapleton, as well as special guests including Sam “SamSquid” Grafton and Benjamin “Spraggy” Spragg, the final tables of each high heat will be broadcast on the PokerStars Twitch channel.

Super Tuesday for Fintan

What’s your best poker session ever?

While Fintan “easywithaces” Hand himself probably wouldn’t rank his Tuesday session as one of his best (the man won a Spring Championship of Online Poker title, after all) it would most likely be up for there for any of the rest of us.

Fintan kicked off his session with a Hot $162 win for $3,500.

He then finished third in the $215 Bounty Builder and got another third in the Big $109.

Not too shabby.


Clips of the week

“To aspiring poker players tuning in, I beg you not to listen to Joe Stapleton.”

Double quads.

Buckle up.

I wasn’t ready for that.

Shower rangers? It’s not bad, y’know.

Bink.

What are the odds?
