    … and Norway, Germany and Iceland finished with 12 points

  2. Zsolt says:

    That was painfully close but still an honourable performance. In fact, Belgium as a team remained undefeated. Well done and good luck for the other events.

  3. Paul says:

    Well done guys !

  4. Johan says:

    Thanks, Zsolt 🙂 Things are going well so far. Michel’s match was live-streamed on YouTube, he played very strongly.

  5. Paul says:

    Good luck ! Understood first game ended 2-2 against Norway ! Good start against a strong team… Keep it up.

  6. Zsolt says:

    Good luck, make us proud!
    Johan, it seems you we were too modest to mention yourself.
