Daniel Stembridge

Daniel Stembridge describes his age as "44 of your puny Earth years". He does not reveal what planet he hails from though it is suspected that Scrabble must be played there due to his clear liking for the game. He currently resides on the third rock from the sun in Lancashire, England - not too far from the Lake District, where he can often be found struggling up mountains, across bogs, looking bewildered in fields, and moaning about how far away the nearest pub is. In 2013, he co-founded the Facebook Scrabble League, and is a former Editor of OnBoard, the magazine for British Scrabble Players. He is married, and has two young children.

Wellington Jighere

My name is Wellington Jighere. I'm a Nigerian, based in Abuja. Other than Scrabble, which I play professionally, I also play Chess quite avidly. Playing Chess is the one singular hobby I enjoy the most. Being the first African to win the WESPAC Scrabble Championship in 2015, I thereafter set up the Wellington Foundation for Scrabble and Mind Development in Africa where our prime objective is to help young Africans discover and live up to their full intellectual potential through the instrumentality of such mind sports as Scrabble and Chess. The realization that Africa is always having to look outside for solutions to our challenges sickens me to the bone, hence my lifelong commitment to promote the mentality that we can actually look inwards someday for solutions if only we can help ourselves tap into that limitless potential, our minds!

Moiz Ullah Baig

I am 19 years old, pursuing a Bachelor’s in Materials Engineering and currently living in Karachi, Pakistan. I started playing Scrabble at the age of 8 but didn’t enter the mainstream Scrabble until 14, it was after my win at the Inter-School Championship that motivated me to compete with the adults and I somehow managed to beat the then national champion, Waseem Khatri, in my very first game. Now I am ranked 2nd in the country behind Waseem Khatri and have travelled to the UK, UAE, Australia, France, Malaysia, Thailand and Sri Lanka, for playing 3 World Championships, 2 World Youth Championships and a couple of open tournaments. My notable achievements include winning the World Youth Championship 2013, finishing 15th in the World Championship 2016 and being the runner-up in the National Championship 2015 and 2016.

Waseem Khatri

I am 28 years old, a Scrabble coach by profession and a resident of Karachi, Pakistan. It all started from my home when my cousin introduced me this wonderful game at the age of 8. At 14, I played my first tournament and performed poorly, losing all the rounds. But it never let me down, instead, infused a spirit in me to fight, fight and fight until I became the best, and my hard work paid off when I was crowned the youngest National Scrabble Champion of Pakistan at the age of 18. That was not the end! I have bagged 8 of the last 9 national championship titles being the only Pakistani to do so and have travelled to the UK, UAE, Czech Republic, France, Australia, Malaysia, Thailand, Sri Lanka and India for international tournaments including 5 World Championships

Michael Fodera

I got started in the game at the age of 13 after reading the Manga Hikaru No Go. Had the lofty notion in my mind that I could travel to Asia, study as an Insei (a Go student) and become professional in a matter of years. Began throwing myself into the game, every weekend, every day after school... I improved rapidly and within a year started teaching at the NY Go Center. After a few years, I burnt out and needed a break In College I was invited to China to participate in friendship games with local students.After being shown how weak my level was compared to China, I was reinvigorated.Not in becoming a better player, but in getting more people involved in the game. With the help of the Shanghai Go Foundation, I Co - founded the American Collegiate Go Association, a group based in the U.S., promoting the game amongst college students in the west.This became my passion.Giving players the same opportunity I had to see how wide the world of Go is.
