Lex predicts he'll win the Thursday Thrill, does

A bold prediction ends in $55,000 and 9,000 Twitch viewers cheering the PokerStars Pro on.

Lex Veldhuis is quickly becoming one of the top streamers on Twitch and his latest feat may be the best yet.

Yesterday he made a (presumably) joke tweet hijacking thanksgiving by predicting he will win a specific tournament that day. 

Then 15 hours later, this happened:

9,000 people watched him take down the tournament he said he was going to win, for an impressive $55,000. Two months ago he managed to attract 15,000 viewers to watch him at a WCOOP PLO final table, which was possibly the biggest ever audience for PLO on the streaming site. 

Not only is his Twitch stream going from strength to strength, so is his YouTube channel, which now has over 20,000 subscribers and yesterday released never seen before footage from his infamous kickboxing match with ElkY:

So yes, he has plenty to be thankful for, as does the poker community, because Lex really is making the game fun to watch for new players and experienced ones alike.
