The year 2023 continues to be full of surprises for Ivano Mocic. The young Croatian chess player supported by the Superbet Foundation has entered the top 20 chess players of the world in his age category (2012) after a series of exceptional results.

Consecutive victories have propelled the young chess player into the top 20 in the world in his age category, and as a result of the points collected, Ivano managed to reach a rating of 1944 in the FIDE rankings.

His participation in this year’s tournament in Seville was just a start for the young chess player, and with the help of the Superbet Foundation, Ivano now has the experience of a grandmaster as a coach.

We are happy to see our support bringing Ivano Mocic closer to his dream of becoming one of the best professional chess players and we continue to support him with every step of his career.


A Dream Come True for Young Chess Player Ivano Mocic

The Superbet Foundation provided the young Croatian chess player, Ivano Mocic, with the opportunity to participate in an international chess tournament for the very first time.

Driven by ambition and a passion for the game, Ivano participated in the January chess tournament held in Seville, where he achieved 5 wins out of 9 games played, earning him first place in the category of players with an Elo rating lower than 1700. Notably, he secured victories against more experienced opponents from Kazakhstan, including the best player in his age category.

The Croatian chess player’s exceptional performance also caught the attention of one of the participating Spanish clubs, who extended an invitation for Ivano to play for them in the Spanish Chess Championship.

In the previous year, Ivano broke the 1800 Elo rating barrier for the first time, and he is now motivated to come back stronger with a winning streak. Currently, the young chess player is training with a Grand Master, which is enabling him to prepare for major chess tournaments worldwide.

Participating in the tournament brought Ivano Mocic joy and valuable experience, further inspiring him to make his mark in the world of chess. We were delighted to support him, and we pledge to continue backing him on his chosen path.
