Real Name: Felix Schneiders
Twitch Channel: xflixx_teampokerstars
Hailing from Cologne, Germany, 35-year old Felix is a 6 Max No Limit Hold’em cash specialist. A former world champion at the card game Magic: The Gathering, he followed a wave of players crossing over to the poker world in 2005, during the Moneymaker boom.
At the age of 23, Felix was hospitalised for a year after his digestive system completely shut down. Once his health returned he was able to complete a mathematics degree which was a perfect complement to his poker dream, and he has gone from strength to strength since. Moving from Limit Hold’em cash games to No Limit in 2007 took his game to the next level, and in 2013 Pokerstars came knocking at the door to sign him up for Team Online.
In an obsessive fashion, Felix used the brute force method to improve his skills, by utilising every training video and forum post he came across, constantly looking for new information to keep on moving forward.
In his Twitch channel he can regularly be found grinding games such as $500NL Zoom on Pokerstars, separating his sessions between English and German language. Not known for playing many tables at a time, he is constantly finding new ways to be interactive with his followers, and doing giveaways. A lot of his streams are more theory based than what is the norm, which makes him stand out as a man looking to innovate, rather than follow the crowd. He clearly enjoys what he does and this shines through when you see him at work.
