Thanks alot for results, Hanco.

I am sadly surprised about G. Badiali results. Is he tired nowadays ?

What is Sakidin nationality ?

The final classification is without surprise.

Guido Badiali of course is old now, I guess between 60 and 70.
Ramon Sakidin has two nationalities, Dutch and Surinam. He was born and raised in Surinam, but lives in Holland (Purmerend) since more than 20 years. Ramon is a grandfather since two years. His ancestors are from what is now called Indonesia. So you can call Ramon a cosmopolitan, as he regularly visits his family and friends in Surinam and Indonesia and Curaçao!
The best draughtsplayer from Surinam MI Guno Burleson, couldn't be in Willemstad this year, unfortunately.
To me the final classification is a surprise, because I didn't expect MF Vladimir Rejc to make a draw in the last round with GMI Ndiaga Samb!! Bad luck for the excellent Sambadancer, who dreamed a couple of years about being able to visit the wonderful island of Curaçao!
The Haitians did well again, just like in this year's tournament in Guadeloupe.
Organizer Raoul Alias, from the village Jongbloet (Young blood), Curaçao, was very pleased and happy with the tournament.
GMI Kees Thijssen won his fourth tournament this year!!!! After becoming Champion of the Netherlands, he won the 23rd Amsterdam Easternchampionship (Paastoernooi), Nijmegen Open Championship of the Netherlands and now the 3rd International Open Curaçao.
What about Kees' chances in Nicolas Guiberts gamblingpoll for the 7th International Bijlmertournament??
Today Kees Thijssen, Ndiaga Samb and Ramon Sakidin will travel back to Amsterdam to join tomorrow the 7th Bijlmer. Jetlag??

Kees Thijssen's odds were between 5.5 and 6 at the start.

It has now gone down to 4.

Tchizov is heavy favourite. Noone believes in Sijbrands to my surprise.
