|Jul-15-11|| ||BIDMONFA: Twan Burg|
|Apr-02-13|| ||waustad: Happy birthday! His score at the Neckar Open gave him 6.5/9 which was half a point behind the leaders. He drew with GM Bacrot and his only loss was to GM Nisipeanu.|
|Dec-03-13|| ||cro777: Since December 2012 IM Burg has been playing correspondence chess. He provided ICCF with a short biography:|
"I am 23 years old and live in Schijndel (NED). I learned chess on age 6 and have been very active since then. In won several youth championships, including Dutch U10 and U16. In 2004 I managed to become 3rd in the European Union U14. I scored 5/9 at the European Youth Championships U18 in 2008.
In 2009 I became IM after winning the IM Tournament Cultural Village Wijk Aan Zee(NED). My other norms I scored in Deizisau(Germany), Enschede(NED) and Ohrid (ECC, Macedonia, 7 rounds).
In 2012 I scored my first GM norm in the GM tournament BDO Haarlem (NED). I am still trying to obtain my other norms. The 2500-mark I have passed already.
I am proud of the strong opponents I have beaten in my chess career: Bacrot, Ni Hua, Romanov and Giri (2x) are among my victims. The games are in Mega2013."
|Dec-03-13|| ||cro777: An exhibition match between FIDE IM Twan Burg and CC World Champion and ICCF GM Ron Langeveld has started on October 1st, 2013. It is played in the ICCF Webserver under ICCF rules.|
