 Dec 22 2014
I ended 14th out of 169 in the 550 event of the Dom Classics.
Coming Friday I will play the 770 event in Valkenburg.
 Dec 20 2014
Played the 440 bounty, got 2 bounties and that's it. Yesterday I played the main event which was dramatic. Nothing worked, connected or went well. So today it's third time lucky in the 550 deep stack. I see the previous days as practice, and today's target is to get to day 2. Back straight and let's do it!! :-) (end of power talk)
 Dec 13 2014

On 11 and 12 December I gave 2 poker clinics in the Holland Casino stand at the Masters of LXRY fair in the RAI in Amsterdam. I enjoyed it as it's always fun to work with the people of HC.

Coming Wednesday I will play the €440 bounty in HC Utrecht, and on Friday I will play the Dutch Open. Wish me luck.
 Dec 9 2014
I ended 14th in the main event in HC Venlo. itm but not as much as I hoped.
Currently I'm still working on my game app, so there's not enough time to update my website as frequently as I want. So a.o. `Poker reports` hasn't been updated since July 2014.
 Dec 4 2014
No luck in the Satellite for the Dutch Open today. I ended 15th, and there were only 8 tickets. I will try again next week.
Saturday I will play Day 1B in Venlo of the main event. Time for some run-good again.
 Nov 26 2014
I won the satellite and played day 1 of the main event of the MCOP. It was a rollercoaster which ended when I ran into AK with my AQ.
 Oct 26 2014
On the 25th I played in HC Breda "steal the button". It was fun while it lasted which was 1,5 hours. :-) Next poker stop is in November when I will play the satellite for the main event of the MCOP.
I've start working on my game app again. I have some rough ideas about what it should be but for now I'm working on the framework, and trying out some ideas. It will take some more months before I can post screenshots. ;-)
 Oct 6 2014
Back from Valkenburg. My first WPT adventure ended quite early. Nothing special. The highroller went much better. Within an hour I doubled from 50 to 100k, which I kept during a large part of the day. A stack between 80 and 120k. When we reached the last 40 players or so I overplayed (in hindsight) my hand, and lost my remaining stack.
During the 4 days in Valkenburg I also played some cash (broken even), and I did some live commentary with Mark Roovers from the Pokercity crew. Something I really enjoy.
Today we drove home which means back to business, or in my case, back to working on a new app (game). :-) Life is rough ;-)
 Oct 1 2014
I will play day 1B of the WPT in Valkenburg. I'm really looking forward to this as it's the first official non-Holland Casino tournament in the Netherlands. I hope to report soon about a victory. ;-)
 Sep 16 2014
Best result was the closing event of 220 where I ended 23/130. In the main event the money went all-in on the flop 9TJ. I had AJ and my opponent had 89. Despite being a 2:1 favorite the river was a 7 and that was it. Next stop is the WPT Valkenburg in about 2 weeks. I'm really looking forward to that. :-)
 Sep 9 2014
Friday I will play Day 1B of the Main event in in HC Scheveningen. Day 2 is on Saturday and the final table on Sunday. Wish me luck...
 Sep 2 2014
I couldn't do anything in Rotterdam. In the 650 I ran into aces twice and I was out of the main event before the dinnerbreak. I'm not sure if I will play Scheveningen in 2 weeks, but it's certain that I will play the WPT in Valkenburg in early October. The main event and the high roller. I'm looking forward to the first WPT on Dutch soil. :-)
 Aug 23 2014
There is an interview with me (in Dutch) on Pokercity.nl. I talk about my life and more. It's written by Mark Roovers.
 Aug 5 2014
Yesterday I won a satelite for a main event ticket in HC Rotterdam on August 29th. That's day 1B of 3 days total (if all goes well ;)
 Jul 21 2014
I ended up playing 2 final tables in HC Venlo, ended 5th in both, so an excellent result. Here are the details and photos for the 440 event and here for the 770 main event
 Jul 6 2014
I got one bounty but lost with AQ from A5, got crippled, and had the push AT which ran into AQ. After that I flopped a straight but lost against a rivered higher straight. :-( On Day 1A of the 330 all went well until the very last hand when I ran into AA with top pair and a flush draw. Day 1B lasted until 10 minutes before the day ended when at first my AK couldn't win from AQ, and my AQ ran into AK. :-( again. Still, I had fun (really), and I'll be back! (in Venlo).
 Jun 18 2014
Next poker stop is HC Leeuwarden. On July 3rd the 220 bounty, and on the 4th of July Day 1A of the Main Event. The latter is a 3 day event with the final table on July 7th.
Wish me luck...
 Jun 1 2014
I reached Day 2 of the Main Event in Valkenburg but busted when my QQ ran into AA (pfai). Not much more to say really.
 May 4 2014
I will play the 770 event in Valkenburg on May 29th, and the 330 event on May 30th. My wife will also play the 330.
 May 1 2014
I played Day 1B on May 1st of the Main Event in Enschede but it only lasted 2 hours. Everything went wrong and I finally went pre-flop all-in with QQ against AK, and a A appeared on the turn. So let's just say that is was not my day. ;-)
 Apr 22 2014
I ended 5th in the Main Event of Venlo. A result I'm very happy with because of the cards I got. My practising in patience finally paid of. :-)
Here are the photos and the PokerCity report.
 Apr 20 2014
I reached day 2 of the €770 event in Venlo. 33 players left. 20 itm.
 Mar 13 2014
I played the 440 bounty in HC Rotterdam but with no result. Got no hands, bluffs didn't work, and then it's hard work, or you need luck. I started with 10k, went down to 2500, doubled up twice to startstack, but lost it pretty quick after that. The 770 and 550 went just as bad, as did the cash tables. So let's forget Rotterdam a.s.a.p. and hope that Venlo, next month, brings some success again.

In 2002 Ron Boots and I composed the track "Cool Runnings" for the German Schallwende Magazine #4. If you want to have it then you can download the MP3 version for free.
 Jan 2 2014
From 2004-2007 I was editor-in-chief of Edition Magazine. Details of all 16 magazines are now available on this webpage.
 Jan 1 2014
Happy 2014 everybody! :-D
I ended 43 in the Unibet Player of the Year, and 33 in the Dutch Open. Both are my best results ever but I want to do much better this year. Next up is HC Utrecht. I still have a small chance for the ranking final (2 more evenings to go), and after that it's the USOP. I want to play a lot of events there.

17 16 15 13 12 11 10 09 08 07 06 05 04 03 02 01 00 99 98 97 96

 Dec 27 2013
I played the 770 tournament in HC Valkenburg. I doubled early with 45 on a flop A23, but then I lost with AA against TT. The cash was ok.
 Dec 20 2013
I added the 2013 results to my Live poker page, and I also added some more photos to the photo gallery.
 Dec 16 2013
I reached day 2 of the Dutch Open and finally ended as #33. My exit hand was quads against a straight flush! Here are the details. For now I like to say that I was very happy with the way I played. It's a real shame that I lost this hand but that's the way poker is.
 Dec 3 2013
Great news: I ended second in the main event Venlo. Details and pictures will follow shortly. For now you can read the live report here and the recap here.
 Nov 16 2013
I played several events during the Amsterdam MCOP, but with no result whatsoever. I never lost so much AA and KK, and when you also loose almost all flips, then it's over soon. All in all it was an interesting but expensive week. ;-)
Next stop is HC Venlo. I will play all 4 events there, and hopefully with more result than Amsterdam. Last time I finished first in the 330 event, so lets try to make it a back to back!
 Oct 19 2013
I played a satelite in Amsterdam last night and managed to win a ticket for the €1590 MCOP event on November 9th.
 Sep 30 2013
Early exit in the 220 event. Lost 80% of stack with set over set on flop, so quick exit after that. In the 330 I ended 12th. So a deep run but just outside the money. But, my wife ended 2nd! An excellent result and her best cash result so far. :-) In the main event I ended 10th, which made this trip well worthwhile.
 Sep 15 2013
I will play 3 events in Valkenburg, NL this month. On September 26th the €220, on September 27th the €330, and a day later the main event. Until then you can find me every Monday night in Utrecht. See you at the tables. :-)
 Aug 30 2013
Just found out that Guestbook and Ask Kees didn't work properly. Sorry about that. It's now corrected.
 Aug 29 2013
I got pretty far in the €660 tournament in Rotterdam. Ended as chipleader on the first day, and finally ended 42 on the second day, 3 places from the money. On Pokercity.nl is the live report of Day 1B, Day 2+3, and the Recap of Day 1B.
 Aug 8 2013
Didn't make it to the ranking table at Utrecht. I ended 13th or something. Oh well, last week a new ranking started, and the start was decent. I ended 9th.
The next upcoming 'big' tournament is Rotterdam. On August 27th they have a 3-day, deepstack tournament of €660. You get 25k of chips, and you can even re-entry should you loose these. I'll keep you posted.
 Jul 7 2013
And the excellent weekend ended with a 5th place in the Main Event :)
 Jul 6 2013
Wow, just won the €330fo in HC Venlo. :-) I didn't have a big stack all day but with solid play and patience (not really my merit), I managed to get into the money, the final table, and ultimately win it. I'm very happy with it as this is my first official #1. Something I wanted for a long time. And beside the money I also won a ticket for the Dutch Open in December.
 Jul 5 2013
Today I'm off to Venlo for the €330 FO. Couldn't resist. :-) And I probably will stay for the Main Event too. So time to win something. Wish me luck!
 Jun 24 2013
I won one bounty in HC Groningen, but was eventually eliminated with AQ against A8, and A6 against 33, both pfai. And as I was ill my wife played the Leeuwarden event and became 13th of 39. At this moment I have no other plans for playing other than the Monday Night in HC Utrecht.
 Jun 14 2013
I'm still playing in HC Utrecht every Monday. They have a ranking and currently I'm in the top 10. So let's hope I can play in the final on August 4.
Next week I want to play in Leeuwarden and Groningen. There are 2 combined events of €330 and €220. Besides the normal price money you can also win a ticket for the Dutch Open. Wish me luck...
 Apr 22 2013
Last weekend I played the Main Event in HC Venlo. I made a great bluff, at least that's what I thought at the time, and got called by the hand I tried to represent. :-O A few weeks earlier I played in HC Rotterdam and got pretty deep. I ended 20th.
So for now it's back to work. The only poker I frequently play is on Monday night in HC Utrecht. That's the € 50 rebuy. So far with little success, although I did win it once.

Coming events I plan to play are in HC Enschede. I haven't decided which games yet, and HC Valkenburg where I want to play all 4 events.
 Jan 26 2013
I played 3 days of poker in Utrecht. None of them with any success. The deepest I got was in the 1080fo where I ended 32nd. That day all went pretty well but I lost a crucial hand with against . on flop and on turn. Luckely the cash games went well so at the end I broke even.
So for now it's back to working on my app.
 Jan 12 2013
I've started to work on an app. It's a game intended for iPhone, iPad and such. The first weeks I spent to learn the new language. It wasn't easy but it was fun to be a programmer again. Something I always loved to do.
It's a work in progress meaning that there's a general game concept but with still plenty of room to add things. I hope to have the game in the app store in 3-6 months, and I`lll keep you posted here.

I haven`t played poker much because of the app, but I intend to play some events at the Utrecht series of poker (previously Dom Classics). I`ve bought a ticket for the satelite to the 2k main event. Haven`t decided what to play more yet.
