October 2, 2015

At the recently ended European Youth Chess Championship 2015 in Porec, young and talented Turkish International Master Cemil Can Ali Marandi (2422) won gold in category Boys U18, but this wouldn’t be a big surprise, hadn’t it crowned a whole youth career.

To be precise, Cemil Can won gold medals in 5 categories of European Youth Chess Championships!

At the European Youth Championship in Herzeg Novi/Montenegro in 2008, Cemil Can won gold under 10.
