Condolence to Papalego
« on: September 22, 2012, 00:50:03 AM »
Sometimes it"s really hard to write the right words. At the beginning of the season 6 I was full of motivation to develop a new team europe. I ask all of my poker mates and try to activate via social networks new players. Papalego was one of those poker mates. He was one of those players who enjoyed the game and love to play for a team. I"d never meet him but felt from the first time that he was a special kind of personality. Season 6 he finished a couple of times close to the points and he was always very teamorientated. I"m really depressed after I"d heard that he died and lost his fight against cancer. Mattejat, his partner, informed me about his death. It"s absolutely devastating to hear about that but it"s unfortunately the trueth. Burkhard aka Papalego died after a tough fight against cancer. He fight his game but at last he lost his life. Ute was his girl friend til the last moment. He want to live but sadly he"s gone. If you"re able to read some of his german postings you know which kind of great personality he was. Never give up was his mentality.

I want to say thank you Burkhard ! Thanks and appreciate your support for team europe. I"d never meet you personal but after I"d read a lot of your postings I know what great personality you was.

R.I.P. Burkhard
