Werner Dupont

Not so many participants, but, all the same, a very enjoyable tournament - and always good to notice that a few newcomers had joined the troops and gave the more experienced DVONN players a hard time.
Christof Nuyttens (NL) kept his cool and won all of his 5 games in great style. In the first ever DVONN tournament he became second, and in this second tournament he became first. There's some logic in it. Boris Ammerlaan (NL) scored 4 points and claimed the second place. A great result! Newcomers Magreet Docter (NL), Fred Kok (NL) and Marieke Keuten (NL) shared the third place and we may assume that they will become a serious treat to the topplayers in the not too distant future. In other words: will the Dutch DVONN-players be able to do what the Dutch GIPF-players haven't been able to do so far, namely floor the Belgians? To be continued!
