Preliminaries Belgian Championship 2017: the favourites made their way to for the final rounds

The participating "big shots" (Bram Vandenbon, 2-dan; Nelis Vets, 2-dan and Kwinten Missiaen, 3-dan) made their way to the final rounds as expected.

Outsiders Joost Vannieuwenhuyse (2-k) and Steven Foulon (4-k) took their chance and also qualified theirselves.

These 5 competitors will join the 5 already qualified players: Lucas Neirynck, Fran├žois Gonze, Gabriel Mercier, Kevin Prist and Jan Ramon in the final rounds in Mars.

Unlucky Joris Oren (1-k)ended as 6th and is thus 1st reserve.

There were 10 competitors.

PS: surprisingly, Thomas Connor (Belgian champion in 2015) did not participate...
