Team PokerStars Pro Lex Veldhuis will soon see his Twitch fans temporarily get off the internet and gather together in one location to take part in a live poker tournament.
Veldhuis will be happy to see his personal brand get so much attention as he will have his very own live poker festival take place in Belgium.
PokerStars will sponsor the first ever ‘Lex Live Spring Festival‘ which will be held at the Grand Casino De Namur, Belgium. Taking place from March 27 – 31, the tournament will showcase a number of events, which include turbos, hyper turbos, PLO and a two-day High Roller.
Veldhuis is a popular figure on the Twitch streaming platform with thousands of followers. His Twitch stream has attracted more than 17 million views to date.
