Info: I came to Littlegolem through discussions around the game of Havannah a great game by Christian Freeling. I used to play on his site: mindsports.net . All the nice games here have kept me away from Havannah for some time until our kind webmaster Richard Malaschitz added it by surprise. Apart from being faithful to Havannah, I am also a fan of discovering new games. Here it is or has been Hex, breakthrough, amazons, Lines of Action, dots and boxes... Currently I am passionate about Conhex and Slither. My noticeable tournament wins were Einstein championship 21 and Einstein championship 26. Championship 21, with only 2 losses in a game where luck is involved. Too bad that I have to congratulate myself : no one else noticed ! :) Right now End of September 2022, I am (for a brief time probably) on top of infinity tournament of Havannah, Slither and Conhex at the same time. (Nov.7th I lose Conhex) And in the realworld I had the honor to win the 2015 Paris international Hex competition although some much stronger fellow LG player were present. But I am a coward and didn't dare to play there again ! --- General self portrait: I was born with a mindset compatible for doing Maths and Science, but rather stupidly wasted my talents to more socially acceptable occupations : I dropped Chess and programming for Photography and Cinema. Ended up professionally during twenty years, as a self-taught and somewhat bored graphic designer. For a few years now I moved on and taught myself another more challenging job: computer administration and database design, with a focus on open-source... --- I used to be addicted to tasuki's stats. My best ranking so far have been April 16th 2013 - number 5 with 4762 points June the 13th 2013 - number 4 with 4875 monster points. Number 9 (5130) seems to be my new stable position among monsters, and 8th Havannah player. (june 2016). This takes having more than 2000 ELO points. I presently have 2014 my best rating ever but it is due to drop quite a bit very soon ! I like also to check the other variations like connection games weighted and No_Word_Games_weighted.
