Thierry van den Berg, better known as BOKPOWER, is a very likeable Dutchman and a very dangerous player and a force to be reckoned with both live and online. Coming out of nowhere, he has risen to the top of European poker with his unparalleled and very constant performances. While some regarded a few of his early victories as flukes, Thierry has proven he is the real thing.
To date, his fearsome play has made him close to $800,000 in offline tournaments and over $700 000 in cashes at online tables. Thierry’s playing style is mainly dictated by feel, intensity, aggression and patience. Some of his best live results includes a 5th and an 8th place at the recent EPT’s in Baden & Dublin. And at the 2006 World Series, he was even very close to a bracelet, ending 7th in the $5,000 six handed no-limit hold’em, in addition to an 81st place in the $10,000 Main Event. How good these results exactly are should be clear when taking into account that Thierry played just four World Series events, and also just very few EPT’s. In 2007, he was the best-performing Dutchman when it came to live tournaments.
