This is a game I played against my friend Joseph. Ratings aside, Joseph is a much better player than me, and in this game, outplayed me most of the way. But I had a saving grace in the ending.

Here is some information and ground rules. I'm not looking for love - already have it. My husband and I have been married over 30 years and plan to stay that way. No sex chats. No social media. No personal information. And my daughters don't want to know you either.
Chess - I take challenges. You need to be within 200 points of me if you want a two- or three-day per move rated game. (Unrated, no problem - see below about joining teams) I am busy with team administration. I give friends and team members priority. Too many rated games for me leads to blunders, and that makes me angry. No one wants to see me angry. I tend to break things ... like arms.
I would love it of you joined Purple Haze, Monika, The WOLF, Valhalla, Blue Ice, or The Phoenix. You would get on my good side, get an unrated game, and that is a good place to be.
No engines though - I believe in fair play. On my teams we analyze suspect opponents. We have never reported a suspect who has not been banned. We report our own players too when they are cheating. I run clean teams - I play clean teams - I take down dirty players and dirty teams - you can count on that.
Now about "Friend requests." If you are a members of one of my teams I will usually accept, as long as you are not rude. If I don't know you, and you send me a generic invite, I will likely decline.
If you are a knucklehead, like this creep, you will get BLOCKED!!!
