Lex Veldhuis Moves to Pokerstars Team Online Instead of Pokerstars Pro

Lex Veldhuis has become a popular name in live poker over the years, as he has had several TV appearances where he likes to play odd hands and aggressive. Now however it is time to relax for the former Team Pokerstars Pro, who has made a move to the Team Pokerstars Online team instead.

PokerNews Netherlands did a 29 minute interview with Veldhuis, where they talk about a variety of topics which includes his opinion about Vanessa Selbst and her recent bracelet win, Jean-Robert Bellande and him playing the one drop tournament, the Dutch national team in football and much more.

But most importantly they talk about why Veldhuis was moved from Team Pokerstars Pro to Team Pokerstars Online. Veldhuis talks about how he have basically travelled the entire globe to play live poker and that he has enjoyed it a lot, but it is time for him to settle down and not travel so much anymore.

Instead he would like to spend some more time with family and friends and grind online instead of having to go abroad every single month to play poker. Being a live pro is without a doubt harder than most people think and with the move to the online team for Pokerstars, Veldhuis can now relax a bit more and grind online tournaments instead.
