If I could change anything in the world, I would... I do something to bring loyalty to the human spirit. I am such loyal person and today as I see hundreds of disloyal people around me.

 

If I could change anything in the Backgammon world, I would... I do something to bring all the clubs and associations together in order to form one big association, all the clubs inside cooperating each other.

 

Additional comments: Thanks to Michael Strato for forming this website. I believe BG world needed such effort. It will be nice to know about the personal details of the other international player who I meet usually in events.
