This guy does not deserve his own page. I deserve my own page although it would likely jam up the traffic with all the ladies anxious to write messages.

Class act, world class player. Coming back from the short stack to beat guys like TJ, Phillips, Chip Jett, and the Unabomber is not an easy thing to do. Truely a great player.
