In Club d’échecs d’Antibes

From January 2014 to June 2014, at the age of 4 , I played 2 tournaments under 8- year- old group in Nice and Hyher, obtained two 3rd places. My first chess coach was  Mr. Gilles beauvisage from Club d’échecs d’Antibes at the city of Antibes, one of the most beautiful towns in the world.

After my first training game with Gilles, he pointed at a big trophy in the club and told me that this would be the one I would get, and I would sweep everyone in chess when I grow up.

However, too many factors can affect one’s success, not only talent. I only played chess as a hobby in my spare time, not as a professional, but Gilles’ s words are forever imprinted in my brain.
