Lex Veldhuis Wins SCOOP Title, Grows SCOOP League Lead

Must read

Lex Veldhuis is continuing his Spring Championship Of Online Poker (SCOOP) dominance and picked up another title as he took down a SCOOP 41-H: $5,200 NLHE Titans for $140,279.

One of the tougher events on the SCOOP schedule, the Titans Event drew 128 runners and ended up with a final table full of top crushers. Those crushers included Brazil’s Yuri “theNERDguy” Dzivielevski, Australia’s Kahle “ROFLshove” Burns and Ukraine’s Roman “RomeOpro” Romanovsky.

The Dutch Team PokerStars Pro navigated the final table with ease and eventually defeated the Dominican Republic’s “Nacho12441” during heads-up play.

Team Lex Widens Gap

The victory was good news for Team Lex, which already had a substantial lead in the inaugural SCOOP League before Veldhuis’ victory on Monday.

With help from other team members like Marius “DEX888” Gierse, who took down a Mystery Bounty event for $113,433, Team Lex is well in front of Team Spraggy, Team Tonkaaaa and Team Fintan.

Luckily for poker fans, Veldhuis streamed the entire final table action, which can be seen on his YouTube channel.
