I play most of my daily games as part of the Movie Fans Chess Club so I haven't been accepting individual challenges so I don't get overwhelmed.  (See also my blog at

I've been on since about 2012 but deleted my user for a new username so lost all my achievements. 

Although I think OTB is how the game should be played but I really only play online. I prefer the online turn-based correspondence games to keep like ‘proper’ chess but I play much more bullet and blitz variations for practical reasons. I think the ratings for lightning and blitz are a good indication of how much knowledge is actually sinking in. ie how familiar certain patterns are. They’re also quick to play if the kids are crying.

I'm a good sport even if not a good player. Play me to find out. happy.png

See you soon.
