|My name is Feroz Amirkhan. I am 18 years old and live in Zaandam, nearby Amsterdam. This year I have exams and next year I will go to university. Draughts has been my biggest passion since I was a little kid. My whole family used to play it, but I am the first one who has done something with it. When I was 9 years old I went to a draughts club and since that moment a new world opened for me. I have often played Netherlands championship but I never played such a big tournament like this. This will be a new experience for me and Iím very happy that I will be participating. I hope I can end my first World Championship with a good result!
