  PhilFeeley: Too bad. L'Ami beat van Wely, but couldn't win overall. When will someone finally overtake him for the championship?
Jul-04-17  WorstPlayerEver: King Loek won! With 2 fingers up his nose.
Jul-05-17  syracrophy: Too bad they could only keep the Queen-sacs streak for the first two rounds. Curiously, the victims were the old and new Dutch Champions!

Though good Loek was the victim here, this was his only loss in the road to his 8th Championship!
