On the 4th of June in the 3rd round of the Championship Roel Boomstra from Holland played draw game. Roel commented his game as follows:
I played a draw game with the sportsman from Lithuania Aleksej DOMCHEV. At this point of the World Championship I am satisfied with the achieved results. Although all the players are well prepared I think that in my group (Deslauriers) I will be one of the three best players. One of the strongest opponents on the Championship is Alexander Georgiev.
Roel Boomstra – young sportsman from Holland, international grandmaster. He is on the 4th place in the world draughts top list. Roel Bomstra started playing draughts when he was 7 years old. It was his mother who took him to the draughts club for the first time.
- I didn’t like the club itself but I was very interested in such intellectual kind of sport, - said Roel. Draughts is profession for me. I’m planning to dedicate my all my life to draughts. At the present I am a student, I study at the university and learn physics. But I spent less time to it than to draughts.
To the question «Do you consider yourself draughts genius?» he answered:
No, I have many things to learn. I do not give special attention to any of the current grandmasters. I gain experience from each of them.
