GERT JAN TIMMERMAN
(born Apr-15-1956) Netherlands

[what is this?]
FM and GMC Gert Timmerman is a Dutch chess player who specializes in correspondence chess. In 1976, he began playing postal chess in small seven player groups at the third highest class in Holland. He progressively promoted to the higher levels, and by 1981 he had achieved the right to play in the 10th Dutch Championship-group, in which Max Euwe was also competing. He was Dutch CC champion in 1981-1982 and in 1982-1985.

By 1996, Timmerman climbed to the #1 position in the ICCF rating list, which earned him a "wildcard" entry into the 15th World Correspondence Championship. Timmerman won the event in 2002, thereby becoming the 15th World Correspondence Chess Champion.

" I think that a opponent who relies only on the choice of a computer, and does not start from his own "natural" resources, will very quickly reach his chess-heights with no room for improvement. "
