  1. For 1,000 hours over 100 consecutive days, Lukas 'RobinPoker' Robinson streamed online poker on Twitch. Think about that for a moment. That’s ten hours a day glued to your computer. Ten hours a day spent inside. Ten hours a day where your only respite from being on camera is the hourly five-minute bathroom breaks. Not only did he complete the challenge, Robinson smashed it in ways he couldn’t have imagined when he first conceived the idea. Now he’s slowly adjusting back to life outside of his self-imposed bubble. “I needed some time to chill when it was over as I was wrecked, but I’m fee
  2. Sunday marked the beginning of the end for the 2021 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker as the six Main Events, with combined guarantees worth more than $15 million, got underway. At the same time as the Main Events were playing out, three more events played down to a winner including a pair of High buy-in events that paid out healthy six-figure scores. Of the six multi-day Main Events (three NLHE, three PLO at each of the tiered buy-ins) five have already surpassed the posted guarantee, and registration for new (and previously busted) players is available right up until the star
  3. The 2021 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker is speeding to a conclusion as another four events wrapped up on the evening before the start of the Main Events.

With over 14,000 viewers following the action on Twitch, PokerStars ambassador Fintan ‘easywithaces’ Hand took down Event #82-H ($5,200 NL
  4. After officially taking Friday off, the 2021 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker resumed on Saturday bringing another four events to a conclusion including one of the most star-studded final tables of the series and the largest PKO to take place thus far.

The very next pitch he did just that - sending a ball soaring over the ivy in center field at Wrigley Field. Ever since that moment, despite

  15. PokerStars’ Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) is hitting its stride. Millions of guaranteed dollars are up for grabs and the competition is as heated as it has ever been.

  16. Broadcast in recent days on the Poker Life Podcastwas an interview with Lex Veldhuis (pictured), who donned his PokerStarspatch in what would turn out to be a rather controversial two-hour sitting. It began with Veldhuis lambasting 2012 World Series of Poker One Drop winner Antonio Esfandiari. "I had some run-ins with him whereI just decided he's worthless," Veldhuis explained. "The first time I came to Vegas [to play a live tournament eight years ago], I was tournament-hungry and wanted to win a bracelet… I got there really motivated, played the WPT at the Mirage, final tabled a side event
  17. Connor ‘blanconegro’ Drinan re-wrote the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker record books on Tuesday when he took down the $10K Pot Limit Omaha Main Event for an unprecedented fifth title in a single SCOOP series. It was less than a week ago when Drinan clinched his fourth SCOOP title by winning the $1K HORSE event, tying former #1-ranked PocketFiver Shaun Deeb for the most titles in a single series. But for Drinan, the heater continued and he surpassed Deeb by besting the 159-entry field in Event #75-H ($10,300 PLO 6-Max Main Event) for an online career-high $322,264.28 payday.

  20. The salt and pepper hair belies Lex Veldhuis' status as one of the best streamers on Twitch, poker or otherwise.

In his storied poker career, the 34-year-old Dutchman has gone from grinding online poker to traveling the world to play big buy-in tournaments and now finds himself combining those two things while the world watches.
