Last week (06 - 11.08.2018), Matei participated in the F-category (U-9) Open Dutch Youth Championship in Borne and ended up the 2nd, with 7/9 and no game lost (5 won, 4 drawn). His score was the same as for the tournament winner (against whom Matei had a draw). The final ranking has been decided on tie-break in 3, with separation criterion being direct results (1.5-1-0.5).

He is happy for this achievement, for which he has been working hard, and would like to thank you for helping him get there. He was proud to stand for his club.
In the 2nd tournament (U9 & U8 & U7 altogether, Thu-Sat) he played less good (I noticed signs of getting tired already from Friday), but he managed to end up on the 4th place, with 6.5/9 (best placed at the tie-break, in a group of 3).
