I am a retired maths teacher, living in Sussex, UK. This site is the first time I've played chess against people I don't know. I want to test myself against a good range of opponents.
On most days I will move a game on by several moves (if you reply!)
I consider that time constraints are part of the rules of the game so I take skulls as soon as they appear.
I have learnt a lot by reading the free newsletters from Tim Brennan at http://tacticstime.com
