APESTYLES WINS HIGH ROLLER DOUBLE
Winning a tournament on a Sunday is the stuff dreams are made of for most of us. But then Jonathan “apestyles” Van Fleet isn’t most of us.
Apestyles went one better on Sunday 6 June, winning two High Roller Club titles on PokerStars in one Sunday session.
First, the BBZ coach took down the $1,050 Sunday Cooldown for $15,053 (inc. bounties), defeating Sweden’s “WhatIfGod” heads-up. You might remember WhatIfGod from winning the $5K EPT Online Main Event on PokerStars for $1.02 million back in November 2020 (he also coolered apestyles out of that tournament, so this was a little redemption).
But apestyles wasn’t done there. He then went on to win the $530 Bounty Builder HR Late Edition for a total of $8,460.
What a beast. Check out the full stream (including both wins) below:
ADAM22 INTERVIEWS APESTYLES
Apestyles also sat down for an interview with the host of the No Jumper podcast, BBZ student Adam “Adam22” Grandmaison this week (if you missed it, you can read our interview with Adam22 here).
Check that out below.
My interview with the one and only @apestyles is now live. This guy’s one of the best tournament poker players out but he’s got a crazy story outside of that so it was an honor to go deep with him and find out what makes him tick. https://t.co/9n6LMfq2mV pic.twitter.com/DOxspXQXeu

LEX VELDHUIS Q&A
Superstar Twitch streamer and BBZ student Lex Veldhuis took time out from his busy schedule to record a Q&A over on the BBZ YouTube channel this week.
Hit that play button!
YOU THA REAL MVP
Seriously. Guys and girls. We can’t keep up with all these scores!
Needless to say, the BBZ community has been on fire these past two weeks.
Firstly, we’ve got to give Lex Veldhuis his props. He’s been due a win in the $162 Pacific Rim on PokerStars for years. The tournament has been the “bane of his existence”.
But last week he took it down for the first time, winning $1,406 plus $2,992 in bounties. GG Lex.
Secondly, if you missed our interview with BBZ student “Trotmant” this week, you might want to give it a read. He went from being a “shit low stakes reg” to winning high rollers in just 18 months.
Now brace yourselves because we’ve got a ton of scores coming your way from the BBZ Brags section of the BBZ Discord. Here we go:
