My dear friend I very happy to see your dedication about chess and that you love dedicating your books to your family and friends. But I have played chess before, mainly in Switzerland, when winter nights are cold, nothing to do, so with my friends and family we played chess,¬†dominoes, and poker, and when not to bothered by the cold weather, we would venture to the pool club and play pool all evening. Mainly the reason why I don’t watch tv; I have learned to keep myself occupied with something else. I don’t like chess, but I play chess.

I am known by my brothers as the slick cheat; daring the impossible when I win.
