About Larkie

Steve, English, living and working in Brunei.
Iffy, clueless player at times. What the heck is a Sicilian? or a King's Indian? - but I've racked up some nice wins against some of you that know what these things are!
I know what a skull is though and I'll take it!

But I won't play you if you have:
a. Hundreds of concurrent games - I've had games lasting over a year and that's just tedious
b. An improbably high win/loss ratio
c. A steep and miraculous rise in rating
d. A history of sandbagging....
Happy to exchange pleasantries/talk shite during a game but if it's not your thing, that's fine too. 🙂
10 tournament wins so far...still waiting for the silverware, champagne, dancing girls and prize money 😞
