I enjoying playing against older people, it's really challenging and they don't give me an easy time just because I'm a lot younger than them.
Also they don't like to be beaten by someone my age, I've beaten adults before and some of them have been really embarrassed!
I like chess because it's enjoyable and stimulates the mind. I don't think it's boring at all and you always must be thinking ahead for your next move.
But I don't know if I want to be a professional chess player in the future.
At the moment I want to carry on studying at school but also be the best chess player I can be."
