Jerry den Hartog has confirmed to tournament officials that he will not participate in this year’s EiPSI Open.
Den Hartog has declared himself unfit to play due to an “unspecified injury” of his legs, and declined further comments.
Den Hartog’s move means Dion Boesten, who finished third last year, gets the number 2 seeding, meaning he will not meet title defender Berry Schoenmakers until the final. Milan Petkovic moves to third. Meilof Veeningen, the best losing quarter-finalist of last year’s edition, gets the fourth seeding.
