I've been playing in the World vs GM games since the Kasparov game Kasparov vs The World, 1999

It was fun playing in this game, which was published as one of the greatest correspondence games in Tim Harding's book Hao Yin vs The World, 2001

I enjoyed the privilege of playing on one of the first World teams to defeat a GM DeFirmian vs The World, 2002

I'm looking forward to the Chessgames Challenge games.

A bit of friendly advice for our future opponents:

< You will have to play to win if you want to distinguish yourself from the GM's and World Champions we have defeated or played to a draw. Otherwise, we will simply continue our undefeated streak. >

Enjoy!
