I play chess for fun and as a mental exercise, nothing more. I will jump at any opportunity to improve my cerebral capacity. I have taught myself everything I know about this game except for how the pieces move. I love to chat during games; it makes it more interesting. At the moment I am taking skulls because I want to get a rating above 1600. Take mine.
Opening preferences: Queen's Gambit, Italian Game and English Opening as white. The Najdorf Sicilian, Scandinavian Defence and Caro-Kann against 1.e4 and Baltic Defence, Gruenfeld Defence against 1.d4 as black.
