One player to rule them all! Van Hoof has an interestingly plain nickname though. I'm sure none of the sites going to call him that after he wins this one.
The Flying Dutchman is a legendary ghost ship that can never make port and is doomed to sail the oceans forever. The myth is likely to have originated from 17th-century nautical folklore. The oldest extant version dates to the late 18th century. Sightings in the 19th and 20th centuries reported the ship to be glowing with ghostly light. If hailed by another ship, the crew of the Flying Dutchman will try to send messages to land, or to people long dead. In ocean lore, the sight of this phantom ship is a portent of doom.

I was keeping track of the final on Twitter and the 4th placed finisher,William Tonking,was probably one of the more active players on the final table and with only 4 left he got it all in with pocket twos,called by a pair of tens and after a flush sweat he was out in 4th. He is obviously a good player to have got to the final but I would have hated to be all in with only a pair of twos,and would be very disappointed to go out in 4th.
