The list below is an overview of past and future chess events I have participated in and might participate in. The first (youth) chess tournament I participated in was around 1995, so this list is far from complete. As for recent events (after 2010), this list is mostly complete.

Various chess profiles on the web, related to games I played: FIDE profile, KNSB profile, SSB profile, 365Chess, Chess DB, Chess Gallery, ChessGames.com, ChessTempo. The latter websites with my old games should help anyone prepare against me and find weaknesses in my opening repertoire. I might have updated my repertoire though...

My personal accounts on various websites for playing chess online: Chess.com, lichess.org, ICC.
