Info:

I was born with a mindset compatible for doing Maths and Science in general 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 came to Hex and to LG in general through Havannah a great game by Christian Freeling, which can be played 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.

My only noticeable tournament win was Einstein championship 21. Only 2 losses in a game where luck is involved. Too bad that I have to congratulate myself : no one else noticed ! :)

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 !

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.
