Roland Wald R.I.P.
who will replace him as source for correct pronunciation of player names?? back in the days of text-only vugraph, Roland gave me my first break to do commentary. i kept feeding him information about an obscure Polish system. I was just reading their CC, but Roland insisted that i type ...
