Personal Notes

Yes, I am a podiatrist (foot & ankle doctor/surgeon)...

USCF rating 2050

Before you ask why my Standard rating is so good and my Bullett rating so bad...I'm getting old...slow brain!

I won the First Latvian Gambit World Championship (see page 20 in 2/99 Chess Life for details).

Remember: Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box...

My goal at the ICC is to develop courteous chess friendships...I grow tired of those who desire the opposite.

What is your handle Howard Stern?

Cheers and Good Chess!
