Currently not taking new students.
I'm a part-time physics student from Groningen, ChessCapital of the Netherlands. I've done almost anything possible in the Chess scene, from organizing major tournaments, teaching kids and seniors to working at a Chess cafe. Apart from Chess i like to run a few times a week and read about history.
Dutch Student Champion 2019
Participated in European Club Cup
As a chess player I'm resilient and resourceful. My strength lies in positional understanding and combining small tactical resources with this understanding to gain small advantages. As a coach I try to develop these skills for my students.
As a coach I started when I was 15 at my own chess club, and have worked with individual pupils up to 2000 ELO over the past few years as well as training youth teams.
Tournament Director of Chess Festival Groningen.
