Either you adore him or you dislike him, difficult to have another option if you have met him in person! An important figure for the greek chess, a man who opens new roads all the time, especially in Heraklion district. His love for chess is self- evident in every piece of cloth he is wearing on, a fact that has made him recognizable in the whole city. In 2010 he came across with Kostas Klokas and since October 2010 the two of them are building by fire and sword a chess miracle in Heraklion.
He was born in Drama on 1961, raised in Athens and moved to Heraklio in 1980, where he lives since then together with his wife and his children Giorgos and Maria, who both of them are chess trainers for young kids!
He is the president and cofounder (along with Mary Vasilakaki) of the Heraklion Chess Club, the only chess club having won a Guinness record, and a prominent member of the chess community during the last 20 years.
