Diplomacy Academy 9: An Interview with Edi Birsan

Postby DQ » 27 Apr 2020, 18:19

I sat down with hobby legend Edi Birsan (inventor of the Lepanto) after his first board at the World Championships in 2016. We discussed stabs, reading tells, and then got into hobby history. Edi started playing in the postal hobby as a teenager, and has thoughts about the evolution of the game in the internet age. Enjoy!



Stab you soon!

Awesome interview, and I it sounds like Edi has no problem being a kingmaker if the situation calls for it.

Thank you! Edi, in my experience, has absolutely NO problem with being the kingmaker- rewarding good behavior, and punishing bad behavior, is definitely one of his secondary goals. :P
Stab you soon!
