How long have you been playing poker?
I have been playing for about 4 years. Once, after a game of Magic, we started playing poker and I thought it was fun. I started looking into it more, played online, and read a few books, including Doyle Brunson's 'Super/System' which influenced me a lot. After about 2 years, I decided to take it up more seriously and became a professional poker player.
Where do you mostly play online?
PokerStars, Party Poker, UltimateBet.com, Bodog, and Full Tilt Poker among others.
Do you play in side games as well as tournaments?
I play about 50/50 in both side games and tournaments. My favorite side game is Limit Hold'em and my favorite tournament game is No-Limit Hold'em.
How many WSOP events did you play this year and how did you do?
I made one final table and I cashed once, out of about 14 entries.
What does the future look like for you?
I don't know really. Poker is very stressful with all the financial swings that accompany it, but I'd like to win a few bigger events and also focus more on the business side of the industry. A lot depends on how much the game takes off back home in Holland. I plan to stay in Europe because I love it, especially Amsterdam and Barcelona.
