 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 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.

 Dec 30 2012
On December 28th I played the 330fo, and on December 29th the 770fo, both in Valkenburg, The Netherlands. I busted early in the 330 but ended 18th in the 770fo. Although it was just outside the money, I was still satisfied with my performance as I was short all day but still managed to stay alive. I finally lost with AK against KK, preflop all-in.
 Nov 21 2012
On November 21st I played the €550 fo in Nijmegen and ended 24th (13 itm). It went fine all day, never was short on chips, but at the end I lost with queens from aces (preflop all-in).
 Nov 7 2012
I failed in the satelite for the Dutch Open, and as only the top 100 was allowed to directly buy-in (I was 102), it was over.
Also nothing special in the MCOP €1590 FO. It was the usual 'yoyo-ing'. From 15k to 8k to 18k to 12k and out.
I did manage to win a ticket for the main event in the satelite. But the main event itself was no success. After 5 hours of play I raised with AQ, got called, and got the flop A89. Villain checked, I bet, he raised, I reraised, he rereraised, and I went allin. He called with A7, and unfortunately I got no help.
The €825 was a rollercoaster, from 8k to 1650-13k-1475-26k-out, and Sunday the €330 was a complete crapshoot. Every minute a player was eliminated. It had little to do with poker. Luckily I had an excellent cash session afterwards.
 Oct 13 2012
The next events I'm playing is a satellite for the Dutch Open on October 23rd, a satellite for the MCOP Main Event on November 6th, and the €300 speed event on November 10th, all in Amsterdam.
 Oct 1 2012
Had a great 4 days in Valkenburg. Lots of laughs, and I also helped the crew of Pokercity with some live commentary.
Especially the final table of the main event was a real thriller!
The 3 tournaments I played all ended with nothing. Not one time could I get things started, and my current `jojo` performances continued. Luckily there's always the cash table(s), which made it all free, and even returned some pocket money. :-)
 Sep 15 2012
No luck in main event Scheveningen. The playable hands I got didn't connect with the board, and the best hand lost the coinflip against . Well, these things happen. Next up is HC Valkenburg at the end of the month.
 Aug 28 2012
I just booked tickets for HC Scheveningen ME on Sept 14th, and 3 tournaments in HC Valkenburg (550, 330, 1080) on Sept 27-29th.
 Jul 28 2012
Spent 3 weeks in Vegas but now I'm back for a week. I've already played two home games, which I both won, so apparently I've learned something in Vegas. :-P
At the end of August I will spent a week in Spain, visiting my mother, but also playing in the local casino(s). After that my plan is to play some tournaments in Holland Casino. Certain is Valkenburg, likely is Scheveningen, and uncertain is Breda. I'll keep you all posted.
 Jul 4 2012
Event #54 was quite uneventful so I decided to play next day's $1500 and this went much better. Within 2 hours my starting stack of 4500 was up to 17k, and the following levels also went well. Unfortunately I lost almost all my stack in a pot against Daniel Negreanu. He opened with AJ, I reraised with AK, and we saw an Axx flop. I bet, he calls. Turn J :-(
With 3bb left I tripled in a 3-way pot with 45s against TT and KK. And after another double I managed to get to day 2. When 8 players were eliminated I was itm, but with hardly any playable hands I struggled to stay in the tournament. Then, with 111 players left, I decided to make a move.
Utg had opened (nothing special), when another player said raise and threw in a 5k chip. He hadn't seen the first raise.
Of course much confusion: was it a raise, if yes how much? So the brush was called who eventually decided to a minraise. With all that hassle I hoped to pick up the pot with my last 12bb, and pushed with J9. The first opener had AK so he also went all-in, so now headsup, I knew I had to be lucky. Window card J, followed by a K :mad: So, that was it. I ended #111.
 Jun 4 2012
Las Vegas here I come! I will play event #54 and #59, both $1000 events, during the WSOP.
I'm leaving at the end of this month.
 May 27 2012
Today I have played the €330 bounty in Enschede. I won one bounty and then ran into with and it was over.
 May 25 2012
Wow, I reached another final table! This time in the €110 rebuy in HC Enschede.
I became 3rd of 118 players. The whole day I played well, so I'm extremely pleased with this result. It's clear to me that now my physical problems are gone I can really compete in this kind of tournaments.
Pokercity didn't cover this tournament, but there's a YouTube video of my entrance to the final table.
 May 24 2012
Today I've played the €550 team event in Enschede with Farit. I didn't get any playable hands so I basically folded in all 4 levels of Hold'em. My partner on the other hand went from 10k to 8k to 24k to 15k to zero in the PLO part. As I don't play PLO I can't comment on any of his plays, but I hope that at least he had fun! :)
 May 21 2012
I've added details and photos of the €330 FO and main event in Valkenburg. Also added are Nijmegen and Rotterdam of April 2012.
Two new photos of 2012, and one photo of 1978 have been added to the Around the world webpage.
My cd "Slices of Time" has a new review (in Dutch).
 May 13 2012
I reached the final table of the main event and ended third. I'm very content. It was about time that I had a good tournament result! :cool:
 May 11 2012
The €220 was a disappointment but I did very well in €330fo where I ended 7th. I lost a pretty crucial hand, 66 against 67, when the flop was 77. After that I had to shove with A2, and got called by KK, no help. But I`m glad with my overal play, and that`s what matters. Tomorrow is the main event. Let`s try to win that.
 Apr 26 2012
I ended 15th in the Nijmegen ME (13 in the money) and I had to work hard all day to get there. All my big hands didn't get paid, so I had to get my chips with creative playing, and that went pretty good. Until the end when I lost a crucial coin flip, J9 against A3. After that lost hand I had to push all-in and it was over.
All in all I was content with my play. Let's hope next month's Valkenburg is a *real* winner.
 Apr 17 2012
I just booked tickets for the 550fo on April 25 in HC Nijmegen. A casino I've never been before. I've also booked HC Valkenburg for May 10-12 (220/330/770).
 Apr 13 2012
Yesterday I played the 550fo in HC Rotterdam. Unfortunately without result because in the 3rd level this happened:
Someone opens with 350, sb calls, I (bb) raise to 1050 with AQ, sb calls. Flop 67J. I bet 1300, sb calls. Turn A. I bet 2300 (with 2100 behind), sb calls (for half her stack). River 5. sb immediately goes all-in. I suspect AJ but can't fold anymore, so call. She shows 89!? :-/
Cash didn't go much better. Flips aren't too bad but I seem to loose all 70-30 and 80-20's currently.
 Apr 1 2012
The main event was a disappointment too. After 2,5 hours of patient play I was up to 16k when I lost 12k when I hit trips on the flop, and someone hit his flush on the river. I came back to 6k but lost with against , and against . Game over.
I managed to win some money in the cash game, but the feeling remains that with some luck/flips on my site, I could have come far.
 Mar 30 2012
No result in €330fo either. Lost 1k of my 5k starting stack to a 3-outer, and the rest with , flop , turn , he plays .
 Mar 29 2012
No success in the €220 fo in HC Venlo. My plan was to take it easy and wait for good hands but somehow I got involved in 2 pots that took 60% of my 5k starting stack. Finally I squeezed with off for 8bb and got an instant call from a guy with . No help from the board so day 1 was over. I played some cash afterwards with no result. I stopped early as I got annoyed from a dealster who took 40+ seconds to deal every hand. Boring, and as a result the table brook up early.
 Feb 25 2012
I just booked tickets for the HC Venlo series that start on March 29. I will play all 4 events.
 Feb 13 2012
So far this year has passed with working on new websites and applications. So no poker tournaments, just the occasional home game. I hope to play some HC Venlo tournaments in March but I haven't booked anything yet.
