"If it ain't Boeing I ain't going" - at least most of the time! I rediscovered chess a few years ago (& this website) and am trying not to be a real chess addict. I would really like to improve my game, but am not being very successful at the moment. I mostly play tournaments, in order to get games, but am happy to play any games ( I presently prefer 3 days timeout + 7 days timebank). My job involves a lot of travel so I suffer timeouts. Having been 'skulled' many times I no longer hesitate to 'skull', but will respect any message to hang fire. GOOD LUCK!
