Mar-11-05  Daodejing: S Kagan learned to play chess very early in his life ;-)
Apr-20-06  AlexandraThess: Shimon Kagan is a great backgammon player! One of the best in the world. Last year he took part in World Backgammon Championship but lost at 1/4 finals. However he is much better at backgammon than at chess!
Apr-06-10  wordfunph: <AlexandraThess> thanks to your Kagan's backgammon trivia.
