"Money is not the most important thing in our lives", says Hou Yifan, "but we all need it to survive". According to her, chess and trading are both driven by logic and strategy and controlling your emotions plays a huge part in success. This inevitably links the two and this is the reason why China's most followed mind game player is keen to promote financial education and took on the challenge to learn to trade herself here, at, and make at least €100,000 together with her fans following her training.

Who is Yifan?
Hou Yifan is the youngest woman to ever win the title of Women's Chess World Champion at the age of 16. Since then, she won the title four times and is the youngest female player ever to qualify for the title of grandmaster and became the third woman ever to be rated among the world’s top 100 players and is widely regarded as the best active female chess player. In May 2016 she sparked a much-followed discussion around the way the women's chess champion is determined when she abandoned the women's grand prix after her call for a modernisation of the women's championship mode was repeatedly ignored by chess officials.
