I've been playing chess since I was 5 years old. Even played professionally between 6-13 years old. Took part in many tournaments, my best result is the 2nd place in the national tournament of the public of Belarus. Funny fact, I won the guy who took first place but lost to the guy who got 3rd place.
My rank before I quit chess was 1 point of a master of sports candidate.
Currently, I'm working as software developer and use mindset that chess and maths helped me develop in my childhood. My current achievements are a merit of chess and mathematics.
