Aged 27, Valkenburg is a professional poker player whose favourite game is 6-max No Limit Hold’em. He has had various deep runs in EPTs and the WSOP but no final table so far. Valkenburg has earned more than $60,000 in tournament winnings in his short career but he mainly plays online cash games. Paul is a writer for PokerNews and his column is one of the most popular. Last month he finished 25th in the EPT6 Snowfest event after a big cooler for the chip lead (kings vs. aces) against the Dane Allan Baekke who won the event. This is only his second EPT and he’s made it into the last 24 again. The guaranteed €30,000 is his biggest cash so far. Valkenburg is currently living in Prague after moving there last year with fellow players Tim van de Riet and Marco Adams.
