Alex Hendriks, the chip leader at the start of the final table, describes himself as a “young gun” who hails from Maastricht. His holiday plans in Bratislava have been scuppered by his Main Event success: “I’ve not been out as I’ve been a bit busy playing poker,” in his own words. Hendriks built a stack steadily on Day 2 and hasn’t looked back – although he’s had an eye on the jackpot sit’n’gos taking place by the MPN Media Desk: “It’s great to make the final table,” he said, “But I would like a spin on Fish Party!”
