About Icky Ike

"The passion for playing chess is one of the most unaccountable in the world. It slaps the theory of natural selection in the face. It is the most absorbing of occupations. The least satisfying of desires. A nameless excrescence upon life. It annihilates a man."
- H. G. Wells

"You can't really be open to the whole world and at the same time stay a real serious chess player."
- Gata Kamsky

I am mostly a tournament player, but I'm trying to get better at blitz.

I don't slow down when I'm losing, and I often resign.

I only go on vacation if my work is taking up a lot of my time.

I will time you out without exception - if your time is out, you have lost the game.
