    Using U.S. Chess Federation definitions, we have our first expert (which is someone rated 2000-2199).

    Congratulations, David J Bush.

    Thank you, but now that Klaus Hußmanns is here, my rating may slip back again. Klaus won the MSO Twixt tournament in England three times. He came in second last year to Peter Henke, but both will be there again this year (August 21). I won’t be there, unfortunately. Here is a list of the top ten established Twixt ratings on PBMserv:

    10 rllark 1705 16 17 0 2 / 2

    phenke is Peter Henke, and fritzd is Paul van Wamelen. I hope they will try LG some time. I am chmeee in the above list. kwalker is Kevin Walker, author of Jtwixt and Jhex.

    I assume “mbernhardt” is the Martin Bernhardt who plays here. Are there any relativeley strong players other than Klaus, Martin, and David who are playing at both sites?

    Hi,

    I wrote a message the other day to some PBeM players that haven’t tried LG yet, including Axel Wehrenberg, Paul van Wamelen (fritzd), Robert Larkin (rlark), Kevin Walker. I wanted to encourage them to try LG.

    Axel told me, that he won’t play at LG in the near future.
    The others didn’t reply but at least now they know, that
    there is LG.

    other top-50 players that play both site’s are: Flemming Jensen, Les Hazlett, Mark Mammel, David Butler, bharat.

    btw: Congratulations David! But I think 2000 points are
    enough, now :-)

    Great player!

    Tobias.
