Highlights from ‘Lex Not Live’ at PokerStars

Those looking to jump in the Lex Not Live series will find a plethora of unique poker variants. Some of those include:

The series also includes Fusion, a PokerStars hybrid of Hold’em and Omaha. In this game, players start with two hole cards and potentially end with four.

Beyond those options, several tournament styles will be offered. Some of those include:

  • Zoom, including a heads-up version
  • Progressive Knockout (PKO) bounty events
  • Win the Button
  • FU Flipout, all-in shootout event

The $33 Main Event highlights the series on May 23. The $55 High Roller should draw plenty of interest as well on May 19. Here’s a look at the complete schedule.

Plenty of satellite action planned

Along with lower-geared buy-ins, players will find plenty of satellites. These feature even smaller buy-ins and allow players of all bankrolls to get involved.

Main Event qualifiers start at just $1. However, players must have their Twitch and PokerStars accounts linked and enter a daily password.

The password changes every day and will be released on Veldhuis’s Twitch channel. 

Those making it through the $1 Step 1 satellites move on to a $5.60 Step 2 event. Players can then earn a Main Event ticket if they make it through that step.

Players with Twitch-linked accounts can also win PokerStars chests throughout the series. Daily Chest Drops feature awards ranging from $1 satellite tickets to $33 Main Event entries.

More promotions in the works

Even more is planned for the series beyond the tournaments offered. As part of the “community” dynamics, a “Mandatory Discord Call Home Game” is also planned.

To participate, players need to register in advance. Those taking part will be on a voice call with their table mates for the entire tournament.

“It’s not ‘live,’ but it’s about as close as it gets,” PokerStars notes in a new release.

A series “off day” is set for May 21, but more fun events are still planned. Several community-focused activities are scheduled including online video games and a movie watch party.

There should be plenty of fun for players who enjoy the community created at Twitch. Recreational players may also enjoy the lower-priced buy-ins and fun events throughout the series.
