Where is Max?

It's pleasant to receive a little surprise from time to time. The other week I asked whatever happened to former Aussie Junior chess champ Max Leskiewicz. Well, it turns out that the man is an avid reader of TCG! He wrote in to say a few words and also to reveal a couple of tidbits.

Now retired from chess for 10 years, Mr Leskiewicz has since earned himself a PhD in law from the University of Edinburgh and is actually embarking on a second one, this time in Philosophy, at the University of Lausanne, in Switzerland.

From what I can gather courtesy of Google, Mr Leskiewicz is quite a prolific writer on legal matters. Check it out. And yes, he is now known as Maksymilian Del Mar.
