Felix Schneiders: His Journey from Streaming Poker in his Basement to the PSPC

Felix Schneiders It’s been almost ten years since Felix “xflixx” Schneiders joined PokerStars . Over the years his role within PokerStars has shifted — initially joining as a member of Team Online before now being part of a varied and hugely talented team of Ambassadors.

Schneiders is in The Bahamas for the PokerStars Players NL Hold’em Championship and spoke to PokerNews about his almost a decade working with PokerStars, the changes he’s made to his content and the poker journey he’s on within the German-speaking community. Changing Things…For The Better

“It really has been a long journey,” Schneiders told PokerNews . “And it’s taken a lot of turns that I wouldn’t have expected. I started out as a cash game streamer, streaming in English and building an English community.

“Then I switched to German. And it clicked. It resonated with me more, I became more natural on camera and it just helped me to be a better streamer.”

Schneiders said the community initially shrank as viewers adjusted to the change in language, but when the dust settled the positives vastly outweighed the negatives. “There’s really no better feeling than winning a tournament, and getting to share those moments on stream was great” “It was more intimate and it was more relatable for my audience. I mean, most of them were German to begin with so it was more of a community that continued to grow from there.

“Another switch was switching to tournament poker, which is something I never expected I would do. And now I can’t get enough of tournament poker. It’s so good.”

Having never anticipated this switch from cash games to tournaments, Schneiders says the change was as unexpected as it was overwhelmingly positive.

“At heart, I’m still a cash game player, and I always used to grind cash games. But it’s just way more fun to play tournaments. There’s really no better feeling than winning a tournament, and getting to share those moments on stream was great.”
