He did it once again: Lucas Neirynck is Belgian Champion !

This WE, Lucas Neirynck (5d) conquered a new Belgian Champion title. He even remains unbeaten (9/9).
With this 7th title (!), he now equals the record of Jan Bogaerts, who had also been 7 times Belgian champion.

Gabriel Mercier (2d...now probably 3d) did a great performance by finishing second (7/9), ahead of bronze medail Kwinten Missiaen (3d), 6/9.

Also directly qualified for the 2018 finals are the 4th. Fran├žois Gonze (4d) and the 5th. Nelis Vets (2d).

Surprisingly enough, Jan Ramon (4d) (5/9) will have to play the preliminaries rounds next year. And so will have Bram Vandenbon (2d), Joost Van Nieuwenhuizen (2k) and the 2 younsters, Louis Baudaux and Victor Schneider (both 6k).
