Brummelhuis became the first player from the Netherlands to reach the WSOP Main Event final table, topping Marcel Luske’s 10th-place finish in 2004, and has become something of a celebrity in his home country. He signed an endorsement deal with 888 and was named the ambassador for the 2013 Master Classics of Poker, the latest installment of Holland’s longest-running poker tournament series. He also became a father for the first time, which he describes as “supercool.” With all those activities he hasn’t been playing much live poker, but he did manage to take fifth place for €8,863 in a €1,000 no-limit hold’em event at the Breda Series of Poker in Holland earlier this week, an experience he described as “good preparation” for WSOP Europe and his return to Vegas next month.
