At the 2010 Michigan Summer Championships in my first four matches I drew a current or former "Giant of backgammon" and to top it off, I drew 2009 Giant #3, Neil Kazaross in the round of sixteen in the main event.

To start off with, I drew 1993 Giant #32 Herb Gurland in the first round of the Michigan Masters. I had previously played Herb in the finals of this same event in 2003 and came out victorious. Herb even made the comment before we started play that he wished that this could have been the final match, but this year we would have to face off in our opening match.
