Yep, a real-life chess master! As of March 2018 I have no official rating. However, at my best I have played around 2000-2099.

 

I'm self-taught and have had no formal training but I've played thousands of games with some pretty  advanced players. I'm a dedicated chess student who has devoted years to studying all aspects of the game. I've devoured hundreds of books on the game, exploring the most fundamental ideas of center control, development, initiative, imbalances, pawn structure, tactics, and strategy.

 

I just became active in the online chess world and chess.com is the Valhalla for  Chess Warriors!

 

Wish me luck on my journey to become a chess master!

 

My Top 5 Favorite Grandmasters (in no particular order):

1. Mikhail Tal - for his tactical magic

2. Bobby Fisher - for his vision

3. Anatoly Karpov - for his positional mastery

4. Jose Capablanca - for his intuition

5. Paul Morphy - for his imagination
