about me

I am a retired surgeon, this backgroud explains I like going  straight to the target as soon as possible, but careful ! I am not a gambler ,don't like go down on incontesteds actions, thus don't like light preempts don't like 1NT opening as preempt but admit their efficiency, it is my flaw. far from my favorite champ: jeff Meckrott a great fighter, He puts such a pressure on oppos either they over-react or they don't react at all :tetanizeds, ye a fighter !
