Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-11-07  Knight13: THIS is the guy that wrote <Easy Guide to the Queen's Gambit Accepted> and he himself never even played a freakin' QGA game himself!!??
Apr-11-07  dbquintillion: Correct. All of his games are in the database. You should be even more shocked to learn that he wrote <Easy Guide to the QGA> when he has only played 56 games of chess in his entire life.
Apr-11-07  Knight13: Yeah, maybe I digged to light to even make a comment on this guy. Sorry.
Apr-11-07  KingG: Well, according to Chessbase, he's only played the QGA once as Black, and four times as White. I know Chessbase isn't complete either, but i don't think they are missing that many games.

From what i can tell, he seems to be much more of a King's Indian player.
