1.When did you start to play renju and how did you learn it? How many years have you played renju?

I started to play renju a long long time ago at Tallinn Hobbycenter "Kullo" with the help of our trainer and idol Ants Soosõrv :-). Then I had a break of some years and I have seriously played renju for about 5 years.

Tallinn Renju Club!!!

3.Which are your best results in national and international tournaments (Usual tournaments and e-mail tournaments). Which is your international rating for the moment?

Eh, I don't have any brilliant results..., I was 4th among older girls on the European Youth Championship 1999 . I'm happy when I beat a stronger player.

4.Which is the best player you have met?

Ando Meritee of course.

5.Can you explain why you enjoy renju?

Because I have a lot of fun playing and the renjugang is great everywhere. I also like to travel with my great co-players. And although my brother said in his reply that he can beat me easily, I know that if I learn more about renju, I will definitely kick him in the dirt.

(Margus, beware!)

Well, getting better, I hope. I want to do my best on Youth World Championship 2000 in Arjeplog.
