True North American Championships Coming
April 1st? Guess not. If it's true it's an interesting move, but not necessarily a forward going one.
In the Well: Jeff Meckstroth
Just wanted to say a few words as someone who has competed against Jeff for over 20 years. He epitomises everything a top class performer should be. Always in your face during the action while retaining complete respect for his opponents. He is top of the players who I admire ...
