Rob Hollink Wins the First WilliamHillPoker.Com European Poker Tour Player of the Month Award

Holland's Rob Hollink has been voted winner of the inaugural 'WilliamHillPoker.Com European Poker Tour Player of the Month' for March 2005, as voted by a panel of esteemed judges.  As part of the official sponsorship of the European Poker Rankings, WilliamHillPoker.Com will be awarding the title of Player of the Month and a trophy to the player judged to have had the most outstanding performance on the European Poker Tour (EPT) in the previous month. Hollink, who hails from Groningen, had an outstanding March when taking home the first prize of 635,000 in the EPT Grand Final in Monte Carlo - his first EPT event after previously winning 6 World Series of Poker (WSOP) events and 1 World Poker Tour (WPT) event. The win lifted him from 81st to 9th in the Rankings, and to 1st in the EPT all-time money list. Runners up for the March 2005 title were: Richard Gryko (four final table finishes in Austria) Brandon Schaefer (runner up to Rob Hollink in Monte Carlo, winner of the French Open in Deauville) John Falconer (winner of two ranking events in March, including the Irish Open) Phil Quayle, William Hill's Poker Room Manager said "March proved to be an outstanding time to launch our 'Player of the Month' award. With action in Monte Carlo, Vienna, Dublin, Stockholm and London's Vic we knew there would be plenty to choose from....... but the choice was still exceptionally hard to make. "All the short-listed players have played consistently well throughout the year and we congratulate them all. But in the end, Rob aced-it with the immense victory in Monte Carlo." Rob Hollink said "Winning 'Player of the Month' really crowns my month off. And to be named the inaugural winner, well, I'll go down in history!" The awards judging panel will convene monthly to vote on the player of the month. The short-list will be selected based upon their results and placings in the previous month and their movement up the rankings list.
