Marc Lacrosse

I am 46, married, two sons. I stopped playing OTB ten years ago. I began to play at ICCF for the millenium open but ICCF timing is a bit too slow for my taste (three or six months for a game is OK but more than one year is too long). I like playing unorthodox openings in correspondence chess. My site :
