Hello, fellow chess enthusiasts! A bit about myself. My chess journey began a relatively short time ago, 3 years to be specific. I became enamored with the game, but had no idea it would evolve into a passion. After playing a few friendly OTB games over about 2 years, I took a brief respite from the game. Now a member for nearly a year, I've played more chess against members all across the globe than I would have ever dreamed. Players from over 100 countries. During this span, my love and knowledge of the game have increased by leaps and bounds but there's still much room for growth. It's my hope that I can share the beauty and cruelty of this magnificent game with as many as possible. I'm trying to gain support for my blog and YouTube chess channel If you would, please take a moment to visit the blog and view one of my videos. None are more than a minute and three seconds. You can get to my blog from my profile page and hit this link to find my YouTube channel: . If you happen to view and enjoy, please take a moment to like and subscribe! Thanks for the support and I welcome and appreciate any questions or feedback! I also here invite anyone who's interested and takes chess seriously to join my club: Uniformed Chaos or any of the other fine clubs I'm a member of, many of which are accepting members and count multiple titled players amongst their ranks.
