14 – year old Jan Marn was born in Ljubljana, Slovenia. His first contact with chess happened at his home when he was only 5 years old. Only a year after getting to know the game, he already participated in his first tournament. Ever since 2012 Jan is regularly attending both national and international tournaments. He was a member of a Slovenian chess club SK Komenda up until 2018 when he gladly accepted the offer to become a part of a well-established Slovenian chess club ZSK Maribor.
