A Blitz Game With Joe Franks.
Tonight i played a couple of blitz games with Joe Franks from Ruislip, England.
He is 57 and a self-employed Telecoms consultant. He play much OTB nowadays.
His BCF grade is 150 which equates to an Elo of 1800 – but according to him, he only
played a few games in the last season.
His homepage can be reach at http://www.thefranksfamily.com/ - but there is no Chess in it (except some Chess magazines for sale) - mostly Holiday Photos .
The photo above is Joe at Roland Restaurant with the copy of Baron Von Kemplen's Turk Chess Automaton. According to him, he could hardly pass this cafe, without checking it out!
