When the awards were handed out Lonello was unhappy that Nortrom got the Dutch Player award.

 

 "Recently when you awarded yourself the Dutch Award not a single Dutchie endorsed it... it actually backfired in your face. Despite for your own club, it seems everybody hates you around here. So where would you get the votes?" - source

 

 

I will give a few reasons why he totally deserved it:

 

- He won the EGC Grand Prix 2017 in Antwerp

- He won the Dutch National championship for the 10th time

- He was in position to win WCO3 (and finished that job)

 

Additionally he organized many Stratego activities (more than just 1 tourney)

I agree with you,Dennis , that Pim deserved the award.

However , this brings an interesting matter. Maybe we should organize some (yearly?) awards that are voted by the community and not just given by one player that is not entirely objective (i had planned to do exactly that but Pim's thread appeared so i decided not to create another thread for the same topic.

Sure , they were presented in a funny/humoristic way ,but some players might have reasons for choosing someone else to win the award .

Eg some people might say that Anjo deserved the award of Dutch player , or that Major Nelson deserved the junior player award.

Maybe this is an idea for TC ?? When its season ends they can give the online awards and ISF can give the live awards at the WC. Sth like that.

Anjo Travaille (Garulfo) would have been a legitimate contender IMO. Objectively not as good as Nortrom's results, but still breakthrough performance at WCh (and won first 2 tourneys in 2018).
