*** Important! *** I really need to have a hiatus from Chess.com because I am very dissatisfied. While I am absent, I wish all my friends to continue playing good and successful games and have fun!

I have cancelled my Diamond membership and log in only occasionally...

As I am finally retired, I will try to return to chess and work on my improvement... I mostly play Daily Games in Tournaments and Daily Matches for my Club and I also love to play Vote Chess ...

Are you looking for a friendly club that has frequent team Daily Matches in rating brackets and proper Vote Chess games? Message me and we'll have a talk about the Club of Numbers!

Some of the famous chess quotes I like the most:

When you see a good move, look for a better one! (Emanuel Lasker)

Avoidance of mistakes is the beginning, as it is the end, of mastery in chess. (Eugene Znosko-Borovsky) 

You can't play what you don't see
   ... and you won’t see anything if you don’t take time to look! (Andrew Soltis & Dan Heisman)

Chess, like love, like music, has the power to make us happy. (Siegbert Tarrasch)
