The stereotypical view of the Dutch is of easy-going stoners, but the government has come out in force against professional poker player Steven van Zadelhoff.
The Dutch government has impounded poker player Steven van Zadelhoff's belongings, including multiple computers, in a hunt for taxes. Two Plus Two forum member RNauta translated the original Dutch article – the thread can be found here. According to the Dutch piece, the tax office has been on the tails of players such as Marcel Luske for some time. “We were and still are In negotiation with the tax office,” said van Zadelhoff’s lawyer, Peter Plasman. “My client has never suggested not wanting to pay his debts. He is leaving for Malta because he needs to relax in a peaceful environment without worrying about taxes”. Of course, Malta’s exceptionally favourable tax rate has absolutely nothing to do with it. Van Zadelhoff plays for Everest Poker and recently won a live tournament for €100,000. The case is ongoing.
