The meeting of Nortrom and Hielco in the Premier Bracket Final will be the 13th time that these two legends have met in individual tournament play at Stratego.com.
 
When Nortrom and Hielco enter a tournament, they usually end up playing each other - this has been the case in 12 of the 15 tournaments that they have both entered.
 
The stats show that Nortrom has fared better, with Hielco winning only 1 of their last 9 meetings, something he will be hoping to put right as these two play their first WinterTourn meeting shortly

Rumour has it that #1 Hielco fan, Napoleon 1er, is preparing a fanfare to support his hero.

 

"Devoted Fan of the year" award: Napoleon 1er. Napoleon was the first person in history to institute a fan club for a Stratego player, Hielco. While of course Hielco is an accomplished player, it is sad to see that Napoleon does not allow anyone to join the fanclub, fearing that he may no longer be officially the biggest fan there is.
