About ktadaddy

Hi! I am a middle aged man who enjoys playing chess. Though a student of the game, I do not use any databases of games while playing, no computer help, nor any reference materials, and hope you will do the same. I am playing the game as an over the board live game, using only memory and study of the position. Also, I don't move the pieces around either when it is my turn as I find abstaining from doing so to be good practice at visualizing combinations and the resulting position.

A warning - if you are looking for a quick game, I am probably not your guy. It is not unusual for my games to extend four to six weeks . . . or even longer!

Kibitzing and game post-mortems are always welcome, except, no rude, temperamental people, please.

I'm not one to "claim a skull", yet neither do I want to wait indefinitely for the next move. As such, if I can avoid it, I won't accept to play a game against anyone having a profile showing greater than 10% of their losses by timeout.

Not interested in clans . . . tried it once, was not for me.
