I truly enjoy playing chess, especially with so many people from all over the place who share my love of the game. Along the way, inevitably friendships are formed. What could be better? Chess, friendship and fun, enjoyable games. Doesn't get much better than that! I shall hybernate and emerge periodically, stretch, play a game or two or whatever. I like talking during games. If you're uninterested in conversation I am not interested in playing you. Unless we've already started and you turn taciturn on me!
hic sunt leonis
allere flammam veritatis
caissa giocarum non compos mentis
ex-tifoso dalle cojboys
Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori!
Solo poso vedere bene con il mio cuore. Lo esenciale e invisibile a gli occhi!
Prefer playing sparingly. I appreciate a PM prior to a game starting!
Opera or music lovers in general: Start a thread in the culture forum and I am sure to pipe in (even about organ music). "E lucevan le stelle" (Puccini) is probably one of history's greatest arias.
