    I've got a couple of openings I use such as the Evan's Gambit, Ruy Lopez and Vienna.  My rating on has been as high as 1440 but I've hit a slump lately...  In any case I would like to learn more about playing for stronger positions and to exploit opponents mistakes and weaknesses without risking an otherwise strong position or material advantage.  I'd also like to learn the skills I need to be able to continue to improve my game and rating.  Looking forward to hearing from you.  Hey, if I can one day make GM status, then so much the better!
