I'm a former soldier who is now making a living in the civilian world. The only battles for me now are on the 64 squares. My favorite players of yesteryear include: Morphy, Lasker, Rubenstein and my fav. Capablanca. I prefer this mental challenge to any other games and enjoy a good challenge. I am esp. fascinated with the depth-of-insight type moves of these players and always try to extract the very most possible from seemingly inert positions.
We aim to be the cleanest club on the site by allowing only genuine OTB players in. We aim to have a maximum in the region of 100 active members (i.e. members playing > 10 games a month) and will only evict inactive members after at least 100 days.
