Lex takes down Hotter $109 trophy ($8K)

Lex Veldhuis has now taken down a title on PokerStars in back-to-back Sundays. And that wasn’t the only thing that happened back-to-back…

Last week we showed you how the PokerStars Ambassador won the prestigious $1K Sunday High Roller for $33K.

This past Sunday (July 11), Lex wasn’t enjoying the best session. In fact, he’d later say he was “in the pits”. Here’s a taster of some run-bad Lex faced early in the session:

But a good run in the Hotter $109–which had 459 entries–could pull him out.

On the final table he ran some well-executed bluffs:

He picked up some easy bounties:

He had the best hand hold in the most important spots:

He eliminated fellow Dutch streamer “Tom_Poker_NL” to take things heads-up:

And then he picked up pocket aces in back-to-back hands:

OK. So he couldn’t quite get the job done with those second aces, but it wouldn’t take long for him to finish off “leoduarte13”:

Runner-runner royal > full house

That’s a nasty river right there.

Storytime with Tonkaaaa.

Don’t throw poop at a guy with aces.

Double bounty.

Badugi wins are rare in Twitch Poker, but we love to see ‘em.

We love Badugi wins so much, here’s another one.

Tom_Poker_NL vs Lex Veldhuis.

Death by quads.

That escalated quickly. I mean, that really got out of hand fast.

A rollercoaster of a clip.

Nice win for peacendloove.

You get nothing. You lose. Good day, Sir.
