The person who has played in the Uppsala Young Champions the most times is Hampus Sörensen, and this year he is participating for the seventh time! He does this despite his birthday always falling right in the middle of the tournament, on October 30. Today, Hampus turns 20 years old and was duly congratulated by the organizers with flowers, chocolate, and a big stack of chess books!
