About MichaelMurray

Software Developer / Business Consultant from Kenton on Sea, South Africa. (The most beautiful place on earth). I started playing chess again in 2009 after a couple of years of not playing.

I make moves twice a day when possible and sometimes from my mobile phone, although I find that I often make mistakes when I do. I like the challenge of playing with people rated close to myself and I am constantly trying to improve. I have never read, nor will I ever read a chess book or tutorial. I guess it could improve my game, but I could not be bothered.

I only play multi day time-out games, so I take skulls, unless asked not too. If you could not make a move in 3 weeks, then you are wasting my time...

I am open to chat during games, but I do not always notice comments, so please do not feel offended if I do not respond.

I except most game invites unless your rating is too far above or below mine.
