What is chess to me? Chess is a language that translates my inner world to the outer world and the outer world to my inner world. It enables me, empowers me, to express things that have been silent for too long. I have fallen in love with this world, all its frustrations, all its challenges, all its joys – and no matter what, I belong.

One of my new joys in chess is blogging about new insights into the game, the players, and the chess community. My search for the soul of chess. Join me on the journey.
