First of all, let me introduce our chess team to you :
Jean Stranjakovitch. I have known Jean since 1984. He is the President of our club, and the
captain of our team "Banque de France". We call him "Don Stranjako" (the Godfather),
because of his natural authority and the wisdom of his advice. Jean has a knack for
transforming almost lost positions into winning ones !
ELO rating 2180 (fide).
Thierry Coste. I have known Thierry since 1975. He never says anything... about himself, so neither will I.
ELO rating 2202 (fide).
Philippe Hartereau. I have known Philippe since 1980. He is a talented tactical and positional player.
ELO rating 2254 (fide).
Valéry Croizier. I have known Valéry since 1998. He plays endings like a god, specially rooks endings.
ELO rating 2186 (fide).
Me. I have known Marc since 1957. I'm no longer a real chess player,
because I only play a score of games a year, but I'm always ready to raise the spirits
of the team...
ELO rating 2086 (fide).
