Personal Notes

G'day! I'm Ricardo Bedin Franca, TheHeadMan from 2000 to 2004. I'm aged 31, my hometown is Floriano'polis (Brazil) and after a pack of years in Toulouse (France), I'm living in Sao Jose dos Campos, again in Brazil.

More than one opponent complained about my bad chess, which shouldn't suit even a FM. I'm trying to play at an acceptable level but I'm not a pro!

This note is to remember Planck the Chinchilla, who was a good friend who had to leave way too early.

Here goes my behavioral code for playing in ICC:

I won't ask for a takeback, and I might give takebacks if my mood is good enough for this (and if there are no BettingBot chips involved)

When short of time in a winning position, I might offer a draw, but you don't need to accept it! Conversely, I might accept a draw when winning on time in a lost position, but i might refuse it, too...
