  • PokerNews will be live reporting from the inaugural Lex Live Spring Festival Main Event.

PokerNews is delighted to inform you our live reporting team is heading to the Grand Casino de Namur in Belgium to bring you all the action from the inaugural Lex Live Sping Festival Main Event.

Lex Live Spring Festival runs from March 27-31 and is a new live tournament series hosted by Team PokerStars Pro Lex Veldhuis. The €225 buy-in Main Event sees players sit down with 50,000 chips and play to a 30-minute clock on three starting flights, with 15-minute blinds on Day 1D then 45-minute blinds thereafter.

Veldhuis has worked tirelessly to increase his presence on the streaming channel Twitch and has seen his community grow exponentially over the past few years.

“When my community starting growing on Twitch, people started talking about having a meet-up where everyone could meet each other and hang out," explained Veldhuis. "It's cool to be able to take the next step and strengthen the relationships.”

While the tournament will have plenty of fierce competition for big bucks, Veldhuis sees his Main Event as a way to interact and have fun with his ever-growing community.

"There are so many different kinds of people from all walks of life in the channel," he explained. "There are people who come home from work and always watch for an hour, and others who always watch on their lunch break. There are those who have it on in the background while they are working at home, people day trading and doing other things online. It's a very relaxed, fun environment with little to no toxicity, so people are very comfortable chatting and it's a great community."

Community members have stepped up to support one another during difficult times as well as to celebrate each other's successes. "People really develop relationships," said Veldhuis. "I feel like we're ready to take the next step with the community, and having a live event is a good next step."
