Jorden Van Foreest
Jorden learned to play chess from his father at the age of six, but he only began to play seriously three years later, at which time he began to make rapid progress. Within six years, he had attained the International Master title, subsequently earning all his Grandmaster norms at the age of sixteen. During his meteoric career, Jorden has won many prestigious tournaments, including the European Under-14 Championship in 2013. At the 2017 European European Team Chess Championship, Jorden scored 5/7, thereby earning a performance rating of 2723. Most recently, he shared first at the 2019 Dutch Championship with his younger brother, Grandmaster Lucas Van Foreest.
