Kibitzer's Corner
May-02-05  Chris00nj: I'm surprised there's no kibitizing about this GM. Does anyone know anything about him? I know he is French and about 35 years old. I wonder if he is related to the Marciano family which runs Guess? (who are also French)

He certainly isn't related to the undefeated Brockton Blockbuster, who was of Italian decent (and who's real name wasn't even Marciano).

Jul-04-06  BIDMONFA: David Marciano


Apr-17-07  gambitfan: <Chris00nj> Your remark is general concerning the French players... Even JoŽl Lautier has no biography!
