Lex Veldhuis Postpones Twitch Streaming Per Doctor's Orders
10 Nov

Twitch streamer extraordinaire Lex Veldhuis remains absent from his channel as additional heart tests are required in order for doctors to ascertain the reason for his recent blackout.

The Team PokerStars Pro was in San Jose, California about 10 days ago preparing for a Meet and Greet at TwitchCon when he collapsed and hit his head on concrete. A visit to a local clinic resulted in doctors finding irregularities with his heart.

Veldhuis was advised to go home, get plenty of rest, and a complete check-up. The 34-year-old did exactly as he was told, apparently visiting two different doctors, and was informed by the second doctor that more detailed tests are required.

Lex informed his many followers of his situation via Twitter:

Prior to posting that video, Veldhuis was preparing to get back in the saddle again and stream some poker action for his fans. He felt ready to get back to work on Sunday, Nov. 4.

The Sunday streaming date was postponed until Tuesday, Nov. 6, as Lex apparently decided more rest was in order.

Poker streaming won't be happening that day either until Veldhuis completes the tests and gets cleared by his physicians. Get well soon, dude!
