De Jong is the coach of world No 59 Dutch player Robin Haase.

The Telegraph are reporting a "mood of shock and disbelief swept through the locker rooms" at the Miami tournament, which is taking place this week.

De Jong is charged in the stabbing death of 42-year-old millionaire Dutch businessman Koen Everink, who was discovered dead by his 6-year-old daughter.

Pokernews.com revealed that De Jong owed € 80,000 in gambling debts to Everink, most of which were from playing poker. The businessman threatened to reveal the financial problems of De Jong.

According to acquaintances De Jong was a very bad poker player.

De Jong will remain in custody for at least 14 days while the investigation continues.
