Day 4 Completed
It only took a mere four hours for Tobias Peters to be crowned champion in Holland Casino Rotterdam. The Dutch professional poker player ended up winning €67,766 and a WSOP Circuit gold ring for his victory in the €3,500 Main Event of the 2018 WSOP International Circuit Holland Casino Rotterdam, after beating Bart Beenen heads-up.
Peters ended up champion of the 181-player strong field. Beenen took €41,861 home for his runner-up finish and Stephane Cordeille took third place, banking €30,226.
Peters started the day second in chips, but it didn't take that long for him to take over the chip lead. "My plan was to wait until the two short stacks were eliminated and start to apply pressure at the final four players. I did exactly that and it worked out great" said Peters after his tournament win.
Peters is someone who prides himself in being the #1 Dutch player on the GPI rankings but was recently taken over by Joris Ruijs after he had a stellar week in Barcelona. "Joris had an amazing run in Barcelona. I hope this victory is enough to claim back my top spot. After this, I'm going to Cyprus, Morroco and the Czech Republic, so if I'm behind there are plenty of opportunities to take the number one spot again".

Final Day Action
Only six players started the final day and it only took one hand to reduce the field to only five. Jacco van Hooren did the damage to Brian Kamphorst who ended up in sixth place. Van Hooren opened the action with a raise and Kamphorst moved all in. Van Hooren called quickly with pocket kings to put Kamphorst at risk with ace-king. The board ran out in Van Hooren's favor and Kamphorst had to exit the table in sixth place. Kamhorst laughed when he exited the tournament area because of the absurdity of busting out in the first hand of the day. Kamphorst was able to collect €12,602 at the cashier.
Jay Oosterbaan was next to leave. Oosterbaan started the tournament today in the last place and managed to pick up a pay jump after Kamphorst busted. Oosterbaan tried to run up his stack, but when he moved all in for his last five big blinds with nine-four suited he ran into the ace-king of eventual runner-up Beenen. The board didn't bring any help for Oosterbaan who was sent to the rail in fifth place, good enough for €16,585.
Van Hooren was the first player on the final day that didn't get eliminated in a preflop all-in situation. Van Hooren got his chips in the middle on a three-ten-eight, all hearts, board. Van Hooren was holding pocket jacks, but he was close to drawing dead against the nine-seven of hearts of Cordeille. The turn was a nine and the river a seven and Van Hooren was eliminated from the tournament. He did manage to pick up €22,199 for his fourth-place finish.
Peters was very active at the table and he was making a lot of three-bets when Cordeille decided to four-bet all in. It seemed that Cordeille had picked the wrong moment to make a move on Peters as he was called off by the pocket tens of Peters. Cordeille was holding king-nine and the board ran out with two pair on it, but no king for Cordeille to double up through Peters. The Frenchman did cash for €30,226 as he ended up third on the biggest stage in Rotterdam this week.
The heads-up started out quite deep as the average stack was still 90 big blinds. The heads-up match was effective 'just' 60 big blinds deep, but Peters managed to win pot after pot against his opponent Beenen. After a failed bluff by Beenen where he mucked on the river after he was called by Peters, he had just 10 big blinds left. He ended up being all in and at risk for his tournament life with ace-four against the king-eight of Peters. The river was an unfortunate king for Beenen and he didn't manage to catch up on the river. Beenen took the runner-up spot in the tournament, cashing €41,861, while Peters took the lion's share of the prize pool, €67,766, and the WSOP Circuit gold ring.
