Why I am here
Apart from the fact that I joined a chess club in Upper Hutt (New Zealand), and do play the occasional game with my father and/or brother, I have not got to the point where I have improved my overall strategy. In the local club's ranking system, I am 199, and I started with a "default" ranking of 400. But recently I played a weaker player and won my FIRST 30/30 game in the local club. The only other time I have won a game or two, is during a Rapid tournament (which the local club only has once a year). I think if I give it a consistent go, online, I should improve.
