English, came to Australia in 1960, still get called a pom, and love to argue with the Aussies on everything, kids are all grown (4) and I live with my beautiful wife Lorraine, and we are both retired. Started playing many years ago, but it is very hard to get a game these days, so that is why is so good. I have not played for a while, so it may take some time for it to come back to me. I dont go much on set openings, or favourite games, I just play each game as it comes, I have never played in any tournaments, and even I think my play can be too aggressive, but I like the game, and hope I can give my opponents a good work out win or lose.
