Veldhuis First Over 30 Million

Jaxon • Nível 39: 150,000-300,000, 37,500 ante
Lex Veldhuis

It wasn't a big hand but it was enough for PokerStars Ambassador Lex "L. Veldhuis" Veldhuis to become the first player to surpass 30 million in chips.

Veldhuis opened for 615,000 from under the gun and was called by "profit76" from the big blind.

Both players checked down the {8-Clubs}{5-Spades}{j-Clubs}{k-Spades}{4-Spades} board the entire way and Veldhuis won the hand with {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs} for one pair better than his opponent's {6-Hearts}{6-Clubs}.
