    Hello, dear chessfriends here on RHP!
    Does anyone know something about the player PIKEJOHN?
    He was a reliable and active player - but from one day to another he stopped playing here (last move in August 2015). I already asked some fried´nds here - but no one knew what happened...

    I only had a draw and a loss against him. My loss was an embarrassing "ignore my post it note, suffer the consequences" kind of loss. The good CC guys never miss an opportunity, and I got "piked"!
