Patrick Ericsson promoted to Level 3

Patrick Ericsson from Sweden was promoted to Level 3 at GP Utrecht.

When I first met Patrick, I determined that he wasn’t ready to test for L1 and sent him away without much encouragement or advice. Luckily, he came back anyway and got his Level 1 at Swedish Nationals 2008. Since then, he has become one of the leaders of the Swedish judge community, someone players trust and judges look up to – and also one of my favorite people to hang out with after a tournament. His professional mentoring and evaluating skills from his job as a teacher are put to good use in the judge program. Sweden has been lacking a Level 3 for over 10 years, and I’m sure Patrick’s promotion will have a huge positive impact on the Swedish community and the whole Europe North region. Congratulations, Patrick!
