    I am a big fan of Lex Veldhuis so i'll be with him 'cause he is so emotional and funny while playing high level poker which I really like,every time he lose or win I feel like I am winning/loosing...

      Lex Veldhuis is my number one because he is somehow to blame that I started playing poker, and I admire his play style.

      Ages ago , in the days a stream was only something containing water, we had a poker tv show. And there I saw Lex for the first time. And somehow I was proud that someone from this little country was playing poker with all that big names , at least someone told me they were big names in poker , personally I had not a clue who was who. And that was the start of me getting into poker. I didn't play it myself in those days but just watched all the shows. On occasion I saw Lex on tv and to be honest as I saw more and more poker players I didn't think he was that good. Probably that was more due to my lack of knowledge then his skills.

      For a while I lost track of him until I saw he was streaming. I started to visit his streams , subscribed and more and more got admiration for his way of play and also his funny open way of entertaining. And again I am proud that someone from my little country is doing so well and is well respected all over the poker world. It became very clear that he is well loved and respected all over the poker world when he suffered with his health a while ago.

      So yes , I will rail him if I can find the time and am sure he will be doing very well and at least entertain us.

          Now watching at Poker Stars Pro roster and see huge amount of Pro players missing of the client...Anyway, if "Money800" or "KidPoker" participate , they always capable of winning big.They natural born poker talents ...Shark style grind in addition with good amount of fun is always expected, if that two participate...Moneymaker is absolute legend and Negreanu...Well don't mess with Negreanu super intuition and card reading ,is a beast ...

            Lex veldhuis!!! He has a winner strategy and he rock alot. I’m a fans or VELDHUIS.. ; )

              I am going to watch Spraggy because he is very entertaining. His interactions with chat is pretty funny at times. Also, he has won a few tournaments in the past few days, so he may win some SCOOPs while he is on a heater.

                I will be railing for team PokerStars Lex VeldHuis , I have already started . Ofcourse I watch some others streamers , like spraggy , but I am addicted to Lex . He can teach me a lot more than he has already taught me . I try to learn new thing all this time by watching his streams , how he bets , on what patterns and boards , and now with the SCOOOP is a great opportunity , cause I also want to play SCOOP satellites and SCOOP games , so I have to learn from the best . And Lex is the best , he has a lot of experience . He is an awesome guy , he can also entertain me while I learn , I never go bored with him while I watch streams for hours

                Good luck Lex .

                  As a Canadian I've always loved watching Daniel Negreanu aka kid poker I've always tried to base my style of play like him. His style is so fun to watch as well you never know what he could be holding making him very dangerous to all.I really hope he is playing the big SCOOP tourneys and will be routing for the legend. Thanks guys

                    LEX is the man for sure! that guy has me intrested in the game more than any other. i think the standard in which he plays is remarkable.

                      Lex Veldhuis, a fantastic pokerplayer. First I saw in to the High Stakes Poker show.
                      But my absolute winner was Felix Schneiders, also known as xflixx (Sorry Lex ).

                      The instructor videos and twich streams were also featured on Pokerschool hungary. I looked it all and learned a lot. He's a fantastic poker player and instructor. Explains in a clear and funny way.

                      An important thing I would like to mention and thank you is setting up the Bet slider shortcuts bottons.
                      For example, I can tell you a long time ago there was a video where I could see the Felix setting of the Bet slider shortcuts bottons, and I have been putting mine down like that.
                      I've been using the 2.5 BB 3.5 BB 4.5 BB preflop raise since.
                      Until then, I didn't think half-blind would be the raise.
                      If you have live stream xflixx, will be happy to watch.

                      English is harder for me, but still I can learn a lot from it.

                      Thank you.

                            PokerKid for sure. Negreanu has many interesting stories, excellent jokes and the most of all, he is always positive wether he wins or loses. His play is brilliant, especially reading hands of an opponent. I would try to mess with him a bit to see him on action.

                              I am fan of Andre Akkari. He is very disciplined player and frequently manages to get to the money. His story very clearly shows that if poker is interesting for you and you take your time to learn and improve you can be among the best players in the world. He started playing relatively late compared with another players and started from scratch so his success story is great inspiration for me.
