I am a student at one of the highly prestigious universities in the world. I have played semi-professional and professional soccer in Mexico, US and UK. Other interests include mountain-biking, martial arts and video games of course. I used to indulge in math and physics related stuff but laziness propelled me towards more comfortable pursuits like 'Gedankenexperiments' ! I chose chess to compete with my best friend who was a high school champ. I played in tournaments from 2003 to Mar 2004 and stopped to pursue academics. I jes got back and hope to break the 2000 USCF soon enough. I don't have a distinct style..and people are most welcome to check my turn-based games to determine it for me. Players who've impressed me - Rubinstein, Capablanca, Fischer, Kasparov, Ivanchuk, Topalov, Kramnik, Morozevich & Carlsen
