Have been playing chess ever since discovering that there was an alternative to checkers played on the same sixty-four squares. My style of play can be described as thoughtful but serendipitous. This often annoys methodical moving opponents. Beware, I will often take a loss better than a win if I sense there is sweat on your brow. After all, isn't it only a game? Oh, one more thing. If you are using a chess machine for any part of our future games, go ahead but just let me know so I can alert the proper authorities.
