have been playing chess since the age of 11, and I went on to become the captain of my school at 15. This meant I had to organise tournaments and help to teach younger students how to play the game, in order to get into our school teams. I continually finished second in the school tournament to casmith_789. I lost to him in three finals. :-( I have now moved on to University, studying Maths, and have had two 2nd place finishes in the Birmingham Rapidplay and Warwickshire Under 21 Championship. 2nd place is becoming a habit!
I have set up a County Championship for English counties. Hence why I'm in so many county teams. If you want to join one, I can direct you to the relevant county. I was a Team England administrator until August 2009, but then I was removed from the administration, and even the team for ... well, I was never told why.
Feel free to challenge me. I like to stick to a maximum of 20 games, so the order of precedence in terms of my acceptance is as follows:
- Friends (in real life, not Chess.com)
- King Edward VI Five Ways
