Hello, World. I am starting to be at least somewhat less playful about chess. I have huge holes in my preparation for D-pawn openings. I barely know algebraic notation. I have beaten a few 1900s usually involving tactics. I am also well into my 30s age wise.
On the upside, I love opening with e4. I love analyzing the openings and middle game. My endgame is terrible!
I expect to post any game I win of less than 20 or so moves, thoughts on strategy, and which d4 openings I like as well as good endgames I bump into.
Clearly none of the advice here comes from a "professional."
Come Back Soon!
