"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him.........
shall not perish but have eternal life" John 3:16
I'm featured in JC Hallman's amazing book "The Chess Artist" (St. Martin's Press fall 2003)
"Not in any sport or game I have watched or played have I felt anything to quite match the visceral shock of a live chess game that descends into the hostile ballet of two players in time trouble..."
"....No extra inning, no hurry-up offense, no photo finish, no river card showdown quite imitates the intoxication of watching two players in an exchange that measures the extent of their wits and the intelligence of their fingers."- JCHallman from "The Chess Artist"
