  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."
