Currently the World Championship Draughts 2016 is going on in various locations in the NL.

Previous World Champion the Russian Alexander Gergiev stepped out and so favourite 23-year old Roel Boomstra is engaged in a duel for the titel with 18-year old Jan Groenendijk. Seven matches have been played already and Roel is currently in the lead with 9 points to 5.

Matches usually start at 12:00 CET and can be watched live from here, so you can see for yourself how the game should be played. There are 5 matches to go starting with tomorrow, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday of the coming week.

If the winner didn't achieve 3 victories quick matches will be played on Sunday.

With 2 more rounds to go Roel Boomstra has today become World Champion Draughts 2016. He was superior in every game so far, with no losses, 4 victories and 6 draws. His opponent Jan Groenendijk uses way more time in every single game, so Roels victory was certainly well earned.

For the first time since 1984 the title belongs to a Dutchman. Hopefully the media attention the coming days will give this brain sport a highly needed impuls.
