I am 47yo, married, have 2 kids, and I live in Seattle. I'm a complete chess novice who is admittedly prone to frequent /regular lapses of judgment. I enjoy playing relatively fast-paced games against tougher opponents with the goal of learning and improving. We all have lives and expectations about the pace of each game; if you communicate with me I'm quite flexible and will not claim timeout wins. Otherwise, I will and expect the same. Thanks for playing!
