Greetings. I'm a sixteen-year-old Polish-American living in upstate New Jersey. I'm currently working on my opening repertoire, so I often use reference books in the beginning of the game. I may be obsessed with chess, but not with my rating, and so I don't use chess engines to think for me. I will respect your vacation setting by not timing you out, but I respect carefully chosen timeout settings even more.
P.S. Advice makes me happy, so if you're the teaching sort, help me out!
