Between the first of august and the 11th of august 2019 in European chess champioenship in Bratislva.
With 22 people from the Belgian delegation we left together on the plane to this championship.
After 9 rounds I gained 4th place with an unbeaten score of 7/9 points! With a tournament performance of more than 150 points above my current ELO. Wow, how happy I am! I did not expect this with so many strong players.
Last weekend the Flemish championship took place in Ghent. This takes place every year in the buildings of the KGSRL, the largest Flemish chess club in the country.
What makes this tournament so difficult is that you have to play two games a day. This makes it enormously tiresome and requires a lot of endurance. Here I fought hard among all experienced players and achieved a final score of 3/7! Another special experience.
My biggest dream is to become the best female chess player and the first female grandmaster of Belgium. Today, no women have been able to realize this in Belgium. I believe in the power of women and I will prove this even then!
This requires a lot of training and a lot of international tournament experience.
Unfortunately this costs a lot of money to my mom and dad. Who have to work hard to finance all this. Examples are transport costs, accommodation costs, registration fees, food, drinks and coaching.
You can give us a helping hand by contributing a little to these costs.
