EPT Deauville: Two Dutch players sitting next to each other

January 22, 2009

There are two players from Holland sitting next to each other. What headline could you possibly come up with to go with that information?

Ladies and gentlemen, a big hand for “Double Dutch”. I’ll be here all week.

In truth, the Dutch are posing the most significant challenge to the French dominance here in Deauville. Tomas De Hoog was third overall in chips at the latest count and those two on the same table are Joep van den Bijgaart and Jorn Walthaus, both PokerStars qualifiers and both with more than 100,000 in chips.

Then there’s Olaf De-Zeeuw, Raoul Gilmar Refos, Wim Emo and Koen Berendsen. The Dutch have taken the place of the Scandinavians here in Deauville.
