    Sounds like quite a character, in any case

    As he did in a blitz game against me at HICC after I defeated him in some exceptionally cute/outrageous manner.

    The charisma so far is shining through. I get quite a bit of amusement from this thread.

    [well, hopefully anyway]
    I am afraid he might be a bit difficult to beat.

    I played him about four years ago in the street of Adelaide (before returning to chess scene, therefore virtually being a nobody). He took his losses quite graciously and politely.

As for making $60 dollars an hour/$120,000 in a year ,who are you trying to kid? You certainly were not making that kind of money when I saw you in the bourke street mall in Melbourne.
    He might have been a school champion

    i remember playing him in blitz when he was in bendigo, and beat him at the 5 go i think. he wasnt there too long as i remember he didnt win as much as he would of liked. there was betting behind the scenes of who would be him, rather than give him money...
