Giving Up Chess

Sep 16, 2010, 11:33 PM |

I tried so hard to give up chess, but it's just too good. I love chess with all my heart etc.

No but seriously,

Chess has helped me focus on my studies at university and it forms part of university life for me. In Cape Verde (my home country) chess really has a tight community. Everyone knows everyone else and so we can exchange openning sequences and other tactics.

I learned chess from my grandfather, who always said that a good chess player is a good man. I would always take the ferry from Praia to Maio on the weekends to play him. That's where I made my first steps as a chess player...

More to come....
